Time for a single-payer healthcare system

In regards to the GOP’s latest health care proposal, one can only conclude that they live in a world fully detached from their constituents.

Our representatives should not be voting for any measure that causes people to lose coverage, raise premiums on those with pre-existing conditions, or cuts funding to Medicare or Medicaid.

Health care should not be a vehicle for profit for the wealthy. It is a service for the common good.

Just as schools, police, fire, roads, and park services exist to improve the lives of all citizens, so should our healthcare system.

It is time for single-payer.
