Personally I kind of like the idea of everyone having availability to health care. The idea that people who don’t see doctors now might start getting regular checkups would dramatically decrease those conditions that are discovered only when it is out of control, or too late.
But what about life insurance? It would cost a lot less than health care and would likely have just as dramatic an impact on people’s lives, specifically families. Think about all of the families that are devastated when the breadwinner dies and there isn’t any life insurance. Think about all of the children that could go to college rather than crawl into minimum wage lives without any help. Think about all of the newly single mothers who would have the means to start over, perhaps with the time and money to re-educate themselves.
Bottom line. Whether it is health insurance or life insurance, the lack of either can ruin a family’s future. Just another political moment!!
