A profit driven healthcare system will eventually arrive at one conclusion: there is no money to be made from healthy people and ending suffering. The basic idea behind universal healthcare is similar to the oath doctors take, to ensure you do not die because of your financial circumstances. It is a humanitarian effort, not for Conservatives. Conservatives call Dems "far left terrorists" for floating ideas like universal healthcare and civil rights protections. Our govt has moved so far right, that ideas involving saving Americans of all classes lives, is called terrorism. Yet, Dems are so Conservative that they vote with Republicans on many issues. Still, they are called "far left terrorists". I guess only people who fly Swastikas are on the right side of the issues now, according to Conservatives.
