Why are the poor - who can’t usually afford health insurance – allowed to fight and die for their country, but not ( as citizens of that country ) allowed to have health care?
Why are taxpayers, who are called upon to finance the defense of this nation, and to bail out wealthy private institutions ( and individuals, )
not able to call on the government - or those private institutions -
when a catastrophic illness or injury robs them of all they have?
Why does our Congress, all of whom receive superb, all-inclusive single-payer ( compliments of the government, i.e. the taxpayers ) medical insurance, refuse to allow the public ( who pays for it ) to have those same benefits?
Of course, these are rhetorical questions, since we all know that Congress is in the pockets of the insurance and pharmaceutical ( and other moneyed ) interests, and that as long as elections are not publicly funded, nothing will change.
