No matter where you stand on health care in this country, when your family needs to see the doctor, you expect to be able to get adequate diagnosis and treatment, and for it not to cost everything you have saved in the bank (or more). Health care just seems like it should be a basic right for every man, woman and child. Taxes may be involved, sure. But when I compare paying taxes to filling in the potholes on the road I drive to work, and paying taxes to treat a life-threatening illness; it seems like a no-brainer.
