Hey, A Swell New Idea: Health Care For All

by
Abby Zimet

Activists are holding a free health clinic
outside Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's office today to protest budget
cuts to the state's medical programs for the poor that will leave many
without care. They are seeking support for a proposal for government-run
health care for all. What a great idea. Even dirt-poor Rwanda
has it. People pay $2 a year for it. Maybe Congress should try to get us something like that sometime....?

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
