Clearly, allowing insurance companies to continue to call the shots is not workable. Without compassionate affordable healthcare the health of major portions of the population of the US is likely unsustainable. According to the Harvard study Mr. Grayson mentions in the video over 48,000 Americans die each year due to lack of health care. And now they want to require us to have health insurance without a public option. That is just corporate welfare in the extreme. WE NEED A PUBLIC OPTION!
We have more important fish to fry, like Climate change and Peak Oil, and can't afford to waste any more of our time and resources lining the pockets of insurance company executives and shareholders. Get it done and move on!
What have you done today to lower your impact?
We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.
