It's really great that Americans are donating millions of dollars for the earthquake survivors in Haiti, just as people opened their hearts and wallets for other disaster victims in the past.
Yet why do most Americans turn their backs on the "homemade disaster" known as the American health care system?
For example: Of all the people who texted the Red Cross and made a $10 donation, how many would scream if the government raised their taxes $10 a month or just $10 a year to support health care coverage for their fellow citizens? Probably a great number.
Why is it, when it comes to our own citizens, selfishness, greed and complacency rule?
I fully realize it will be expensive to reform health care, but we will all benefit by the investment - an investment for the future.
Please support health care reform, for everyone.
