Basic Position: Universal Health Care. Every American covered.
Overview: The current health care system makes no sense. It is expensive, with much money wasted on private insurance and HMO bureaucracies. It gives little or no coverage to tens of millions of Americans. When people without coverage get sick, they delay seeking help. This makes our entire nation vulnerable to rapidly spreading infectious diseases. It is inhumane and it is stupid.
Universal Health Care has been proven to work. It can be administered far more efficiently and inexpensively than the current greed-driven system of chaos.
