Re: “A face of the uninsured, a state of denial

Conservatives are bringing up "scare" words in opposition to health care reform. Words like, "socialism", "welfare state", and now, "illegal aliens".

A previous commenter states that 15-22 per cent of the uninsured in America are "illegal aliens". This only serves to point out that at least 80 percent of the uninsured are American citizens who are unable to receive affordable health care in the wealthiest country in the world.

The basic reality is that health care in America is overwhelmingly a profit making enterprise, controlled by the insurance industry. It is simply wrong that any one industry should have this level of control. In effect, we are arguing whether the insurance companies should have the power of life or death over American citizens.

It is demonstrably in the state's best interest, economically and in every other way, to promote the health of the citizenry.

This is why the rest of the industrialized world has embraced public health care, and why we should, too.

Re: “Could you survive on the new minimum wage?

This budget, of course, doesn't include frills like the occasional movie night, enjoyable food, and luxuries like car repairs. It also involves living in neighborhoods that have drive by shootings all the time, where one doesn't set foot out of doors at night.
