Real Health Insurance for Everyone!

Don't let them delude you into believing that true national health insurance is something socialist, fascist, or communist! They are the insurance companies reaping profits from you, the privileged insured, as long as you have a job and can afford the high premiums and have no dire illness or condition they don't want to pay for and cancel you. Again, those afraid of true full coverage for all are only directing their envy in the wrong direction, as better-offs they envy the worse-offs! The rest of the world is amazed at how little the US does to care for ALL its ill and disabled citizens. The only country I know of that behaves in a similar manner is the People's Republic of China, a true communist-fascist-capitalist state.
Forget "isms" and urge everyone to support health care for those who need it!

Op-Ed Columnist - This Is Reform? - NYTimes.com:

Giving consumers the choice of an efficient, nonprofit, government-run insurance plan would have moved us toward real cost control, but that option has gone a-glimmering. The public deserves better. The drug companies, the insurance industry and the rest of the corporate high-rollers have their tentacles all over this so-called reform effort, squeezing it for all it’s worth.
Meanwhile, the public — struggling with the worst economic downturn since the 1930s — is looking on with great anxiety and confusion. If the drug companies and the insurance industry are smiling, it can only mean that the public interest is being left behind.

You shouldn't have to promise to die before your medical bills (and then only palleative) will be covered, as was the case for my mother!
