Misty Snow on Health Care

 

 


Healthcare is a human right; insure the 33M uninsured

Healthcare is a human right. There are approximately 33 million people in this country that do not have access to health insurance. As a result, we have thousands of people dying each year because they can't afford health insurance, and thousands more die each year because the health insurance they have is insufficient. Millions that do have adequate care are burdened with high premiums, deductibles, and prescription drug prices.

The USA currently has the world's most expensive health care system, yet we do not have the best healthcare outcomes. Dozens of other countries don't have thousands dying every year because they can't afford health insurance, and those same countries don't have people forgoing necessary medications because they cannot afford them.

The Affordable Care Act was a good beginning, but it's just that, a beginning. Much more needs to be done to ensure that all people in this country have full access to healthcare.

ObamaCare is a good start, but goal is single payer

The Affordable Care Act [ObamaCare] was a good beginning, but it's just that, a beginning. Much more needs to be done to ensure that all people in this country have full access to healthcare. The best solution is to adopt a single payer system that has proven to be successful in dozens of other countries. I am not opposed to expanding the current Affordable Care Act to cover more people. I am also not opposed to finding new solutions to increase access, provide better quality care, and reduce costs. However, such solutions should not distract from the main goal of eventually adopting a single payer system by extending Medicare coverage to all Americans. We must continue to fight until all people have access to healthcare.
