Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness: these three unalienable rights
require equal access to essential services for all citizens.

Healthcare is a human right, not a privilege of the rich.

Citizens of advanced democracies do not live at the mercy of a corrupt élite.

I was very disappointed and let down when Senator John McCain came onto the Senate floor, to make clear that while he didn’t support the current bill, he agreed that they should at least begin debate on the health legislation.  And he did this after flying across the country due to his absence because of his recent surgery and a brain cancer diagnosis. Still, he delivered a sobering rebuke to GOP leaders about their resistance to work on a healthcare…
