Good afternoon, Netizens…
Once again cartoonist David Horsey takes a look at the Health Care System, at least as it is sometimes presented to us. While I only know a very few people who fit into the category of the woman on the left, I presume she must either be a government employee of some kind (including elected positions), a person retired from such companies as Burlington Northern, certain union employees (although those numbers have been steadily dropping in recent years) or gifted with exceptional health and wealth. In short, she is probably not representative of anyone we know personally.
What is not in the picture are the escalating numbers of people who have no insurance whatsoever, because they cannot afford it, or it is one of the faceless population that, because they have no health insurance, have lost their homes and life savings because of unexpected medical expenses. What seems so tragic is no one else in the picture, perhaps even including President Obama, have ever found themselves in such dire circumstances.
They all have health insurance. If they all lost medical insurance coverage, we might have a chance of passing Universal Health Care Insurance into law. Otherwise, nobody in the picture probably gives a damn about the uninsured.
