I haven't yet read this thread the whole way through, but I just wanted to pop in and say that I can't imagine life without universal health care.
For example, I'm 9 weeks pregnant and have already had an appointment with my GP, a battery or blood tests, an appointment with my midwife and will be having an ultrasound this week-- all covered.
I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that. ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth
