In most countries health care is a right, not a privilege. In the USA we have health care for profit.
Half of the country now lives at or below the poverty level and can no longer afford health care. The proof is the 45,000 people who died last year.
As Ron Paul said, "Maybe you could find a charitable hospital (Catholic) that takes charity cases?" If you can't, the alternative might be death.
What happens when 70 percent or 80 percent can no longer afford health care?
Obama had a good, but not perfect, idea with his health care plan, but a better solution is to have health care for little or no cost, as many progressive countries now have.
If the Republicans succeed in destroying Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid as they plan, we will see many more people die.
Are you willing to die to vote Republican? Think. Vote Democrat.
