Universal Health Care? Not Yet!

Big business is seeing the positive side of universal health care. Health insurance adds $1,500 to the purchase price of a General Motors car
and Starbucks pays $200 million to insure 80,000 employees. Ford plants are closing, with thousands of jobs lost, thanks to the high cost of health care. Too bad the CEOs of these companies weren't more forward thinking during the Clinton health insurance debacle in 1993.
In a 2004 blog from the Nation, Katrina vanden Heuvel reported 43 million uninsured. Now the number has risen to 47 million and will continue rising. The insurance companies are in total control of our health care, and will be until they no longer finance political campaigns.
