Missing The Point

In this summer of screaming and cavorting during which we turned what should have been and indeed what deserved to be a critical debate on social justice and social need into a carnival midway I think the main point was lost.
We don't need more health insurance. Health insurance is neither a fundamental need nor a fundamental right.
What we need is health care.
Health care is the issue and the need not health insurance.
There. I said it.
