Ive often thought that our country is going about the health care debate the wrong way. Many years ago this country asked itself whether or not a free, public education was a basic human right of citizenship. Id argue that the answer to that question has paid off in uncountable ways. What if the health care debate started with the simple question of whether or not health care is a basic human right of citizenship in the United States? What is your answer to that question?
