Get on Board for U-Care Now!
As we approaching 2009, over 60 years since Europeans thought their citizens deserved a shot at good health, and over 130 years since the Western World (Germany c1883) thought it was a good idea, it’s time in this World Economy that all Americans put their worries aside once and for all when it comes to the basics of good health care.
It is far more economical and much less painful when uninsured citizens (48 million uninsured – 90 million under-insured) are given only the choice of a trip to the emergency room that could have been avoided with a simple trip to the doctor’s office a few days prior. It is also important in a downed economy when jobs are short and workers are in transition, and when the number one killer in the US is stress.
American tax payers are providing health care for the people of Afghanistan and Iraq, we pay more for a Japanese automobile so that Japanese companies can pay for their county’s Universal Health Care System, and we give Israel $3+ billion a year in support which helps to fund their Universal Health Care System and Free Education.
Perhaps you don’t like all Americans for political, religious or cultural differences, but have a care, we are all human beings, we rely on each other.
