    You left out the most important one...

    When you control healthcare, you can control the population....they will be able to make people obey them when they threaten to keep healthcare away from "conservatives," people who don't obey the global warming cult, and those who oppose their policies.

    If we want to declare ourselves as the greatest country on the planet, we should probably act like it.

    That begins with taking care of our own.

    Anyone who has seen people in this country suffer because of preventable problems due to lack of healthcare would get it.
