Healthcare and Our Health

by Ginger Marin

IF our government officials really cared about our health THEN:

We would have universal heath care.

Every food grown and sold in this country would be organic.

The health care industry would NOT be FOR profit, not the hospitals and not the insurance companies.

The people hired to run the agencies that are supposed to safeguard us would not all be from industries and companies that go out of their to harm us – like Monsanto.

The Supreme Court wouldn’t be making rulings that protect pharmaceutical companies at our expense.  We can’t sue companies that harm us if the FDA approved of the shit they make.

The Supreme Court wouldn’t make rulings like in the Hobby Lobby case which disallowed women getting contraceptives through employer health insurance.

The Environmental Protection Agency would truly safeguard our national resources: air, water, earth and not cater to businesses that seek to pollute everything.

The companies that pollute would be shut down, heavily fined and made to clean up their mess forthwith, not years down the road.

There would be absolutely no factory farms.

Why We Need Universal Healthcare NOW

by Ginger Marin

Many of our government agencies are responsible for regulating industry, the same industries that routinely and deliberately pollute our air, water, soil and the food we eat.  They regulate by setting allowable pollution levels or by ignoring the situation entirely.  That means they are directly responsible for the contaminants entering our bodies and disrupting our health and even killing us.

They allow nuclear and other waste to leak and contaminate our communities.  They plan pipelines to run through our towns and when they explode or leak, they take no responsibility for the harm to people’s health.  We’re supposed to fend for ourselves with the “help” of for-profit insurance companies and for-profit medical facilities that know no end to price gouging.

Many in our government, especially the aggressively stupid republicans (the same ones who deny the indisputable FACTS of global warming), deny our need for universal health care.  Can’t afford it?   How much money did our government lose in Iraq when it sent billions of taxpayer dollars in cash for distribution to corrupt, incompetent low-lifes?  I’ve read figures ranging from 12 to 40 billion.  How much money does our government waste every single day due to its incompetence, greed, corruption and useless wars?

Universal healthcare NOW!
