    .."General Welfare" that the preamble to the Constitutional spells out:

    We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    That would be one of the best moves that we the peoples government could establish imo.

    Imagine if people didn't have their medical needs chained to their work place.

    That kind of  freedom is something one would think the "libertarian" would go for. But it's not, but like what Atrios suggested would stir things up, we should promote this idea - medicare as a right and part of the general welfare spoken of.

    Why not?

    imo
