People should realize that health care is a human right for all of us. All Americans should be entitled to the same health coverage that President Donald Trump, U.S. congressmen and congresswomen and senators have, especially people who have “pre-existing conditions” as well as low and moderate income seniors, the working poor, persons with disabilities and mental health consumers. What is good for The Donald is good for all Americans.
Likewise, all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, and indeed, all Canadians should have the same drug, medical and dental coverage that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the country’s premiers, federal MPs and our provincial representatives have, especially seniors who have low or moderate incomes, the working poor, and persons with disabilities who are ineligible for income support. What is good for Justin is good for all of us!
I believe the United States should join the modern world and implement a single-payer universal public medicare system for all their citizens. And I believe Newfoundland and Labrador, should catch up to the more progressive and supportive Canadian provinces and municipalities. Dental care should be a human right.
