Is there an Occupy consensus about Health Care reform? From a brief search of the forum it seems there isn't, and I can't help but wonder why. While not an "Occupier" I am of the 99% so when thinking about a movement that coalesced around big government bailouts for corporate America and Wall Street, I am surprised Occupy didn't capitalize on the opportunity presented here to help the taxpayer have a voice at the Supreme Court rulings. Health care is rife with inequity so what isn't fair about each and every person having the chance to get health care at a price that is affordable? If the issue of not having health care doesn't strike fear in your heart you must have a job that provides it for you. Lose your job or retire and the government is providing you health care, anyway. What could be more liberating than not having to take health care into consideration when considering employment? AS it is now do we have the real freedom to start our own business or take a work hiatus if health care is on the line? The current system promotes indentured servitude, does it not?
