Who is responsible for the crisis in health care?
Whereas Health care is unaffordable: 50 million Americans lack health insurance, and millions more have underinsurance with inadequate benefits, and can’t afford to get health care because their out-of-pocket costs are too high, and two thirds of personal bankruptcies are caused by medical problems, leaving most families one illness away from foreclosure and homelessness, and Americans are forced to pay twice as much for health care as in countries where care is as good or better (Canada, most of Europe, Japan, etc.),
And Whereas Wall Street is responsible for the crisis in health care: Insurance companies perpetuate wasteful bureaucracy ($400 billion wasted per year), keep exorbitant profits, and deny us health care when we need it, and no other wealthy country allows that, but Congress and the President allowed Wall Street corporations to write the Affordable Care Act (federal health care reform) to serve the greed of the private insurance industry, and mega-corporations have corrupted our legislators with buckets of money,
And Whereas Health Care is a Human Right that Everybody Deserves: Therefore, We need UNIVERSAL health insurance an improved and expanded Medicare for all otherwise called single payer Wall Street’s Greed Kills those In Need! Single Payer Health Care Educate yourself. http://owshealthcare.wordpress.com/ - www.pnhp.org - http://www.healthcare-now.org/
