Health Care a Human Right


When the U.S.A. became a country, our government was supposed to be by the people, for the people. But our representatives have gone far astray. Now they are working hard to cut off our human right of health care. Meanwhile, congresspeople and senators get the best health care, yet they do not want to give it to us.

I think it is time to get rid of them all and start again, by voting in people who really represent us — people like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and other progressives. Health care is my human right.
