Heathcare is a human right. We need Universal single payer public private healthcare system. Just as the rest of civilized developed world.

The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, Article 25:

(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

To deny a healthcare, thus causing a death of 40 000 Americans a year for the sake of bigger profits of corporations that raise costs of "insurance" 10-20% a year to me is CRIMINAL, UNWISE, WRONG, SINFUL, COUNTERPRODUCTIVE, FASCIST and untenable.

It can be argued that US Constitution, by saying "unalienable right to pursue happiness", covers the right to health care also.

WHY NOT then deny health care to rich robber barons, to CEOs of insurance companies? Why to people who's jobs have been exported to China?

EVERY developed nation on this Earth - in fact, every, period, has a national, public-private healthcare single payer system.
