Start backwards from the goal: The goal is to make sure EVERYONE has the care they need. Everyone must be protected.
If you start with how much it costs, or how it will be payed for, you will not get anywhere.
Write to your friends, congress, newspaper and make them keep their eye on the ball: The goal is to make sure everyone will have the access to care they need. Period. 70% of those without insurance are working. They are NOT dead beats, they simply have a job that does not provide coverage.
How has their voice been drowned out?
Why are they afraid to speak?
Please remember you have a duty to stand up for those who cannot protect themselves.
People, sick people, are more important than ridiculous scary words like ‘government run’ or ‘socialized’. People who use those words just don’t care about people who are suffering.
