What about human rights in this country? Medical care is a human right. Freedom from persecution, whether racially-based, gender identity-based, citizenship status, or economic-category-based is a human right. Freedom of and from religion, especially from elected officials’ religious bias influencing legislation, is a human right. This do-nothing GOP-led Congress should be thinking about preserving these and other human rights as they contemplate making laws that leave millions without healthcare, and millions more enduring an unfair tax burden, while tossing entitlements to the corporations and the wealthy who don’t need them. Maybe freedom from legislators indifferent to their constituents is a human right too!
