Health care is a human right. I have said this before and will say it again. Until the U.S. public accepts the fact that everyone, despite of socio-economic status, is entitled to quality health care, then there really is no adequate health care system. A single-payer type system such as Canada has would be ideal, except the U.S. health insurance industry is kicking and screaming to not let that happen. This debate really is a debate about how much corporate political power -- funding campaigns and faux grassroots movements -- has over democracy, or the improved social good.
