National Health Care

Posted by progressivethink on April 2, 2009

Just saw a great Frontline documentary on the crisis of healthcare in this country.  It amazes me how the Republicans can essentially ignore this as an issue in this country.  Frontline compares the 4 main types of systems that we could have here. Unfortunately 15% of the American population enjoys a healthcare system similar to people in Cambodia, or rural India.  Strange when you consider America spends the most out of any other country on healthcare, yet fails to take care of 15% of the population.  One upside of the economic downturn will be the increased clamor among the electorate for government to take some action on this issue, and dismiss those ridiculous rants about socialized medicine.

    Let’s respect the language, huh?

    Seriously? What’s with the grammatical/ typographical emphasis lately. Please keep in mind this is a blog run by LAW students. If anything you should expect some simple errors, since this is all done on top of everything else we do for school. While it would be nice to be able to spend the same amount of time and effort on an extra-curricular blog as we do on briefs or other legal documents or assignments, expecting that level of care is unrealistic.
