If America has the money to throw down a rat hole for the survival of other countries, then we have the money to provide insurance for every American!! When I say every American, I mean every American, regardless of race, sex, gender, orientation, or pre-existing condition.
I came to this conclusion in 2004, when Democrat, Dick Gephart, from Missouri, placed his name for presidential run. He said, Democrats, see Americans in one, big boat….what happens to one passenger will impact other passengers, directly or indirectly. I can think of several scenarios where this would be catastrophic.
Republicans, on the other hand, see Americans as being on several boats. Some are cruse ships, others are boats of various sizes….according to what you can afford.
It all boils down too: “I’ll scratch your back, if you’ll scratch mine.” In other words, it would be better for all America to pay now, rather than later. Because, later the costs are much higher. This is life and death in terms of health care.
