Is there a sense of community? Are unions the last bastion of "all for one?"
Watched a John Stossel television special on health care the other week. To make the point that 'national' health care doesn't work, a woman from Canada kept praising the U.S. health care system because we have 'choice.' When questioned about the cost the woman also kept repeating something like, I don't care, I got better.
Granted we all have a sense of self preservation, but it was obvious from her remarks her intent was to convey that she had the financial ability to buy the best health care and frankly she was willing to move to the front of the line.
Okay, it's fine for her to purchase health care as a commodity, but somehow as vital to life itself as health care will always be, you'd think the richest country in the history of the world could guarantee at least basic care to everyone.
