Universal Single-Payer health care would have kept my family member alive

January 23, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. has a screwy health care system that makes most people’s health care dependent upon their employment.  They might get health care if they have a good job with benefits.  But if they get laid off from their jobs, they lose health care. In contrast, all other modern industrial nations recognize health care as a basic human right, and their governments fund efficient, high quality health care for every person regardless of employment status. The U.S.’s failure to have Universal Single-Payer health care caused my cousin’s son to DIE. My cousin’s son had a job with medical benefits.  He […]

TV: “Why Universal Single-Payer Health Care Is the Real Solution”

November 15, 2017 GlenAnderson 0

The health care crisis is so timely now that the Olympia FOR’s August 2017’s program is the one we had aired during December 2015. Although Obama’s Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) helped in some ways, it has failed to cover many millions of Americans and failed to control costs. Republicans are trying to repeal the ACA for right-wing reasons.

Olympia FOR’s August 2017 TV program – also watchable through our website – proposes universal single-payer as the real remedy […]
