Healthcare in America - Have Mercy!
Healthcare should be a Constitutional right. Every American deserves access to the health care system, but unfortunately, the system is broken. We need a system based on mercy as opposed to income. In a country founded on equality, created by revolutionaries who sought to break the ties that bind, we are denying our own a sacred right, the right to life. Income should not be equated with right to life. With medical care prices soaring, only the privileged few can afford such a luxury, the privileged few being those with jobs whose corporations are farsighted enough to provide health insurance. You don't have to sacrifice anything but some compassion. Haven't we advanced far enough as a society to show some respect, some human kindness, some brotherly love for our fellow Americans. A line from the Merchant of Venice comes to mind as Portia fights so valiantly in a courtroom.
The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
Be blessed. Be giving.
