Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. I believe in Medicare For All, plain and simple. Not a watered-down version of a public buy-in option, or some other obfuscation, but Medicare For All. When you have companies making profit off of peoples’ sickness, it is a direct conflict of interest. They have no incentive to care about your health.~ Justin Wooton
