In the end, both men lack courage to break the stranglehold the corporatocracy has on healthcare in the U.S. by openly endorsing a switch to universal coverage as soon as it can be implemented.
What these two men tell us about themselves in their half-baked, half-private plans is that they are timid, too much politics-as-usual kind of people to fix America’s broken healthcare system. Two men who, as senator and former senator, have no stake in fixing healthcare for the rest of us because both have the best health coverage in the country guaranteed for life by the federal government.
Because people 65 and older have Medicare, which works pretty well, perhaps some elders haven’t noticed that American healthcare is in crisis. One-sixth of all Americans are without health coverage. Millions of children go without basic checkups and dental care. Every day, people die because hospitals can’t afford to treat them.
As part of our everyday learning, we need to stay on top of the political scene for the major issues of which healthcare is certainly one that will reach out and touch every one of us, sooner or later.If you don't already check in with Ronni Bennett, it would be a very good thing to do.
