On Health and Health Care in the United States

Health care should not be a private commodity bought and sold for profit. No one in the country with the highest per capita medical expenditure in the world should go without full, equal access to health care. Health should not be apportioned by wealth or class or race or gender or ability or anything other than humanness. Every person in this country should have access to the same high level of care. We have the means. We have the resources. We lack only the will.

I intended to write more, but I've said all I needed to say.
