Imagine if we treated the human body like with treat other stuff, fire protection for all things, health care for the privileged.
Our fire protection is better than our healthcare
An article in CommonDreams really got to me.
Imagine that your home was on fire but firefighters refused to extinguish the blaze because you didn't have the right insurance, or your premiums weren't paid in full, or you didn't jump through the myriad requisite flaming hoops to qualify for relief.
That's the premise of a video published Wednesday promoting the New York Health Act, a bill that, if passed, would provide single-payer, universal health coverage for all Empire State residents and workers.
The video, which stars faux-firefighters Jabari Brisport and Zohran Kwame Mamdani—two Democratic New York state lawmakers who back the bill—is meant to draw attention to what single-payer supporters say is the absurdity of the United States being the only nation in the developed world without universal healthcare.
Backers of the bill argue that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic underscores the necessity of immediately passing universal healthcare legislation, with single-payer advocates noting that 300,000 New Yorkers lost their health coverage during the proverbial inferno of the Covid-19 crisis.
If there is one thing that the pandemic made clear is the need for Medicare for All. It is time.
