Health care reform
Apparently somebody subscribed my dorm list to US President Obama’s mailing list. The latest subject is health care reform.
There is a particularly choice quote from the book I’ve been reading about Mao:
”Health care, health care, it benefits high officials; peasants, peasants, their life and death are nobody’s business.”
He wrote that in 1965, but it still seems quite relevant pretty much anywhere on earth. Cuba might be the only exception I can think of off hand. A lot of places have free health care, but if something needs to be done immediately, it is not likely to get done in those places.
