The United States deserves a better health care system
San Mateo Daily Journal

Our nation waits with bated breath to learn the verdict on health care reform. If supported by the Supreme Court, access to U.S. health care will be greatly improved. Currently, we have programs to support certain groups — Medicare supports those older than 65 and the disabled, CHIP supports mothers and children, university-mandated health care supports college students, prison health care supports prisoners. The only people not getting health care now are: adults without children who haven’t committed a crime and ended up in prison. In the end, don’t all citizens deserve health care? America deserves healthy citizens so we can work hard, love our families and pursue happiness.
