We eat more than we should, get up too early and spend our days rushing around. We're a lot nicer than we were expected to be.

It seems that we're overlooking the most important and most
ethical role of health care, and that is to cure people of what ails
them.
For example, we all know about the routine tax increases on cigarettes.
A tax that is supposed to "help smokers". The question is, why aren't
those same tax dollars being applied to cancer research, or helping
cover the cost of related treatments? Not a single penny of cigarette
tax has ever gone toward cancer, though ethically, it shouldn't go
anywhere else, if the taxes are truly designed to "help smokers" (and if
the government is sincere in their efforts to reduce health-care costs).
We have all lost someone close to us as a result of one form of cancer
or another. Cancer has been the #1 killer illness for decades, which is
why there is absolutely no excuse for not having cures by now, and why
the American people are long overdue to demand those cures. The same
applies to diabetes, Alzheimer's, and the list goes on...
Pushing to find cures for such illnesses would not only be the right
thing for our political leaders to do, but these cures would also cut
health care costs in half -- at least. And because cures have everything
to do with stopping the daily worry and physical suffering associated
with such illnesses, and the premature loss of loved ones, the push for
cures should be priority one in the government's health care plan.
Pushing for cures is just one of the ways our political leaders should
be leaving legacies, not by building airports with their name on it. If
they don't have better ethics than that, and better priorities than
that, then we cannot expect them to help our health care any better than
they "help" smokers.
