DAMN right it is, and it should be considered a HUMAN right EVERYWHERE in the world.

Americans, particularly reTHUGlicans, are too stupid to see this or accept it. They want to be punished by greedy, self-interested, for-profit healthcare and insurance companies in the belief that universal health insurance is somehow "socialistic" and "bad."

Medicare should be extended to ALL Americans, who should pay into it in healthcare taxes and small co-pays at the point of service. Certainly we can also divert some of the billions we waste on the military into insurance for all.

This NEEDS TO BE DONE. If reTHUGlicans and Cons oppose it, flush 'em out of government.
