To The Reader's Forum:
Our government spends untold billions defending not only our freedoms but the freedoms of other people. They spend untold billions in aid as well.
We spend billions on sports, entertainment and making stars and executives rich, but yet we cannot afford to subsidize something everyone essentially needs like health care? And depending on the kind of health care you have determines the service you get as well. The better off you are financially, the better you're treated.
I don't buy into it. Get rid of the red tape - make health care more affordable by charging nothing for it. If we can afford million dollar celebs, then we can afford affordable health care for the ones who can't.
