  •  Health care is a right (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    What the dimwit Tea Party hacks that are blocking universal insurance must be made to understand is that health care is a basic human right, an inalienable right for every single American that cannot be legislated or ruled into oblivion. The duty of our public servants has to be to increase access to medical care and health insurance for as many Americans as possible. Never in our history has a political party acted specifically to deny a basic right to so many Americans. We must work to increase the number of people with access to medical care, not throw them off the insurance they already have. This is shameful....  -  progress

    •  I don't think it's a right. (0+ / 0-)

      And it's not a civil right by any means, as there are no constitutional rights at the state or federal level that mandate healthcare for all.

      I think it's an easier sell to the people on its cost-savings, practicality and humanity.
