7. Without it,

we might be fighting for actual health care for people, instead of pretending that they can afford for-profit insurance, and that the insurance will provide actual care.

Corporate America is going to fight any kind of effort to cut into their profit to provide care, even when they are actually benefiting. It's what they do.

Just like Republicans will fight anything and everything Obama does, even when he's implementing policies that are Republican goals. It's what they do.

It's part of their identity.

As long as there is going to be a fight, I think we ought to be fighting for a universal non-profit national health plan that provides health care free at point of service, paid for by taxes. Fight for the best, not for a corporate compromise.

THAT would make actual health care accessible and affordable for all.
