Quotes du jour

"This is about understanding, again, that health care should be a right, not a privilege. And it's also about being smart. It is so much better that people have meaningful access to affordable health care at every stage of life, from birth on. Because the alternative is that we as taxpayers otherwise are paying huge amounts of money for them to get their health care in an emergency room."
-Kamala Harris, Dim-CA

The foolish thought that universal health coverage reduces ER visits was disproved back under Romneycare:

"(Massachusetts) State health policy officials issued a report last month showing a 6 percent increase in emergency room use from 2006 to 2010, the first four years when the law was in effect."

Her assertion that health care is a "right", is so preposterous that it is not worth deconstructing here.
