Individual vs. Group
I will never understand how people can think that the health of the group would not benefit themselves as individuals. The debate on healthcare has greatly saddened me. It makes me sick and angry that we have such a pathetic healthcare system that is tied to our employment. It frustrates me that people are so afraid of the government, that they are willing to deny healthcare to fellow citizens - themselves included. It scares me that my husband could by laid-off and we would have no medical insurance. It should not be like this. I can't stand that I live in a country that allows this to continue. It is shameful that we allow our neighbors to suffer because we will not step up and demand this human right.
