Principles first – implementation later

Principles first:

If only we could agree: Health care it’s a matter of human rights.

If only we could agree: No Civilized nation which could afford it would deny universal health care to all its citizens.

If only we could agree: What Jesus, Moses, Mohammad, The Buddha, and other religious leaders would say about people in the USA dying because they lack health insurance. A single person would be bad – a person every twelve minutes is the extreme of evil carelessness (not caring for our brothers and sisters).

Implementation later:

Every civilized advanced industrial country has universal health care. Some do it through government insurance (like Britain with its wonderful NHS – National Health Service – don’t laugh I lived there – we pay about nine thousand dollars a year for our catastrophic health insurance here but given our ten thousand dollar deductible dare not get all the test we need and we are middle class).

Others do it through private insurance companies with choice but the government pays the premiums for all and decides the rules for minimum coverage (France, Germany, Japan do it that way I believe).

So once we agree that health insurance is a basic human right there are many, many ways of getting to that goal of one day joining the ranks of civilized countries.
