I can’t tell you the exact date of this speech, but it’s obviously been more than 40 years and we Americans are still, as JFK puts it, “behind” when it comes to providing medical coverage for the average citizen.
I’m not saying I’m 100% behind Obama’s current plan, but at least it’s a step towards some progression. If everyone else has government regulated health care coverage, why don’t we?
