‘Peter Boy’ tragedy might bring reforms
Before another keiki dies, I pray that Lillian Koller’s e-book on Peter Boy Kema exposing failures in Hawaii’s child protection system moves officials to make much-needed reforms.
Eleni Davis Kapahulu single-payer for all Americans at her town hall, she equivocated. Unfortunately, this is what we hear from a number of corporate Democrats.
“If you are unable to afford an attorney, one will be provided at no charge,” the law says. We need the same thing for doctors. Around 50 other countries know that universal coverage is the only system that can really work. It takes us away from premiums, co-pays, high risk pools, networks, deductibles, tax credits, health savings accounts, pre-existing conditions, etc. Simply put, everyone is covered. Just as I pay for public education, police, fire, roads, parks, military, pensions and other programs, I expect my taxes to pay for health care for all.
This is a plea from millions of Americans: We ask Mazie for the same compassion that she has received, for all of We the People.
