Health care

Should all Americans have a right to basic healthcare

why is it an issue

It is an issue for americans to not have basic health care such as getting shots as needed or pink eye just to get a check up thats why we need basic health care just to make sure we can have basic health care to protect ourselves.   candidate 1 Obama: "...I think it [health care] should be a right for every American. In a country as wealthy as ours, for us to have people who are going bankrupt because they can't pay their medical bills -- for my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in the hospital room arguing with insurance companies because they're saying that this may be a pre-existing condition and they don't have to pay her treatment, there's something fundamentally wrong about that."obama agrees to this issue because of how all that happened to him during when his mom died,and he had to fight about the insurance. candidate 2 Romney;`` What we did in our state was this. We said, look, we're finding people that can afford insurance, health insurance, that are going to the hospital and getting the state to pay for them. Taxpayers are picking up hundreds of millions of dollars of costs from people who are free riders. We said, you know what? We're going to insist that those people who can afford to pay for themselves do so. We believe in personal responsibility. And if the people aren't willing to do that, then they're going to help the government pay for them. That was our conclusion.”Aug.'' Mitt Romney agrees to this because he thinks we should all pay for what we are paying for.
