Af­ford­able health care

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Wow, what a swell guy! Ashton Miller III brags that he owns nu­mer­ous busi­nesses, re­fuses to pro­vide health in­sur­ance for his em­ploy­ees, but gives bonuses to those who take fewer than three days of sick leave a year. No won­der we need the Af­ford­able Care Act.

Lots of Arkan­sawyers work more than one job just to keep food on the ta­ble, but still can’t af­ford out­ra­geous health-in­sur­ance pre­mi­ums. A sin­gle-payer plan would guar­an­tee that all Amer­i­cans could count on pre­ven­ta­tive care and hos­pi­tal­iza­tion when needed. Many other cap­i­tal­ist coun­tries man­age to do it—we can too.

We can all thank God that at least Mr. Miller did not claim to be a Chris­tian—WWJD?
