Someday, U.S. May Catch Up To Mexico on Health Care

Post by sraney on Wed Apr 04, 2012 11:03 am

“… we’re getting close to reaching universal coverage of health care — full, free health care coverage for all people up to 18 years of age, including cancer coverage. Of the 112 million Mexicans, 106 million will have efficient, effective universal health care coverage.

So I would say that I would hope that one of the greatest economies in the world, such as the United States, could follow our example in achieving this, because it was a great thing.”

– Felipe Calderon, president of Mexico, in a press conference with President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Monday.

For profit healthcare is immoral...but then look at the country.

As you know mexico was grabed during the mexican american war which Abraham Lincoln was opposed, it being another of our long history of illegal wars...

putting aside THAT minor point...the mass movement to the US of mexicans for a long time has been a defacto reason mexiico has not colapsed.....both the US and mexico are aware despite the ramblings of politicians the US will continue to absorb mexicans do diffuse a revolution in mexico and the possible loss of meixicos assets to "the people" of mexico...(of course this would be a temporary loss as the banks would gret it back as they always do)

The Mexican plutocrats - no middle class there at all - further betrayed their already impoverished citizens by allowing the United States to dump their excess commodities on Mexican farmers who were unable to compete with the artificially low prices from the U.S.. At the same time, the plutocrats in the United States' Congress betrayed their citizens as the prices are artificially low because the agribusinesses receive a huge subsidy in the Farm bill that passes annually - "our" representatives continue to do this in order to guarantee funding for their campaigns and I'm sure there's lots of insider trading going on as having a dumping ground for the stuff increases the value of a company like Monsanto, Cargill and Archers Daniel Midland, ya think? The plutocrats don't give a damn, because the services that the hard working immigrants require are paid for by the American public whose middle class is vanishing as well. It's a lose-lose scenario for the working class, but a win-win for the royals. These sociopaths increase the tension even further by placing the blame on the refugees who have fled here - convincing the brain dead Americans that they're trying to do something about it by periodically raiding the corporations that are hiring them with Darth Vader clad brutes, rounding them up and filling "for profit" prisons with in a sane world should be illegal employers who are profiting immensely from their labor as they have no representation and can be taken advantage of in every way possible. For many of the red states down south these prison complexes are their primary industry placing enormous pressure on the local tax base as the corporations who run these prisons charge exorbitant prices for their services so there's very little left for education, infrastructure, etc. This is a class war folks, and we need to be honest with ourselves and at the very least watch what the Congress passes on a "bipartisan" basis. It's a tell for sure. Without campaign finance reform and taking personal responsibility for learning about the actions of "our" representatives, we cannot continue to call this a democracy. A plutocrats worst nightmare is an informed citizenry which is why they detest educating the public.

This is why we need to be wary of scapegoating. They are conveniently used as cover for the real perpetrators.

Health care is really important for workers for their safety and security.
