  •  I just want some health care. (5+ / 0-)

    I want to give my husband a rotator cuff rebuild, and two new knees, and the consultations with pulmonologists and dieticians and psychiatrists he needs.

    I want to have a little myself...I want two tendon grafts, and I want a podiatrist to figure out things about my foot mechanics, and I want vestibular therapy, and I want regular manipulation to fix my twisted spine, and I want to have the medications I need and enough income to buy the right food so I don't feel like crap all the time.

    When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.

    •  health care is a human right - (0+ / 0-)

      therefore no health care access is immoral. May you and I and everyone who needs it have access to proper health care in 2013. Profit margins of insurance companies should not be literally killing us.
