Healthcare is a Human Right


I believe that healthcare is a human right and that we need a system of Medicare for all. We need a system where everyone is covered, where we pick our own doctors and hospitals, which is run by the states, and is efficient. The Canadians have been using a plan like this for almost 50 years, healthcare is universal, they live three years longer than we do, and pay only 60% as much. Conservative Canadian businessmen will not give up their system because it is good for business, lowers their national debt, and is run by the provinces. The Republican alternatives are breathtakingly cruel--taking hundreds of billions from Medicaid to give more tax breaks to the very wealthy.
