You Have A Say In Your Government
One thing that I’ve been continually mystified about is this notion of government is evil and part of the problem. This kind of rhetoric was in overdrive during the healthcare debate in 2009 and 2010. When it comes to government, you have a say! It’s by the people, for the people. Why anyone would choose to privatize (or keep private) a service that is meant to benefit all (like financing of healthcare) is perplexing to me. You, I, and all citizens have a say in our government.
It might feel like our voices are small but we do indeed have a say. When it comes to a corporation we have no say at all. Why we would choose that when it comes to something like the financing of healthcare for all citizens, so that everybody has access to healthcare, is beyond me.
