If I were to compile a list of the important things in life, my health and the health of my family would be high on that list.
When Jimmy Kimmel’s son was born a few months ago with a congenital heart defect, he spoke to the audience not as a comedian and talk show host, but as a father who not only realized how lucky he was to have health insurance for him and his family, but also how precarious the health insurance system in America is.
Last night, during his monologue, he spoke of the bill being drafted by Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham.
Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. Regardless of our income or employment status, we all have the right to not just healthcare, but quality healthcare.
The bill proposed by Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham is wrong on many levels. And of course, the irony is that while they are proposing to remove millions of Americans from the healthcare system, they will get healthcare for life because of their position.
I urge every one of my American readers to call their senators and urge them to vote no on this bill. We have a right to a voice in our government, it’s about time we used it.
