Up at the Cafe: On Healthcare for All

I have a new piece up at Episcopal Cafe - my first in quite a while. The topic is to continue commenting on where the Episcopal Church is on health care. Specifically, General Convention has repeatedly called us to work for universal access to affordable, quality healthcare. (I've written about that before, including here and here.) 

Go over, take a look, and let me know what you think, whether there or here.

Well, I've seen your posts on APC Facebook too and am glad you are pursuing what is a basic need of all people; dental care too. Of course everybody doesn't get free food but the key is affordable which I believe has always been USA policy - at least for Americans. The rest of the world needs to be considered too. Affordable basic health care is what I want; heart transplants, well, maybe not. I worked at a Presentation Sisters clinic in Mexico once and 9 medicines made a huge difference in the communities lives. Can't all people at least have basic health and dental care? The 3,000 billion spent in the wars on Iraq could have gone a long way towards this. Also the 2 billion per spent on exotic war planes and ships could too! We need to convert towards life-giving from life-taking! John Stangle
