Issues we should ALL be able to agree on

19 Aug

1. Every person should have health insurance

2. Every one should earn a fair wage

3. Everyone should receive a excellent education

We should have the decency as human being to be humane and allow everyone to get medical treatment and prevention. Everyone should receive a fair wage, not just the minimum wage. Everyone should have the chance to be whatever they want. We need to make college more affordable. If we can’t agree on these three ideas America is screwed. How can we be fair and deny these basic human rights; health, money, and education to people. Money or social status shouldn’t limit what one can do. America is not the country that lets people die because they can’t afford medical treatment? America isn’t a country that allows veteran to be homeless? America isn’t the country that allows people to be paid barely a wage? Are we? I cry at night thinking of the people in this country that have been denied these rights. How can we be a country that allows the uninsured to die?
