Just Because: Health Care
I have been trying to decrease my political rants but... the subject of health care has me very emotional this week. The US is the only industrialized country without universal health care and it sickens me to see all the lies and misinformation being thrown out there to scare those already worried. It is only scaring people needlessly and not providing information so desperately needed.
It sickens me to see people with Health care plans worried about losing things when universal health care is not about them, it is about the millions of people without any. It is shameful it is not already in existence and it is shameful so many are working so hard to ensure the 'have nots' remain so. It will happen eventually, that is inevitable. I just hope it happens now. Some people cannot afford to wait any longer. There really is nothing to fear about universal health care, the real fear truly lies with those without it.
