I was recently hired by Healthcare-NOW to update their website–I know, it needs a ton of work. If the site isn’t confusing enough, you should see the code. Couple that with my non-profit endeavor, City Prosper, and I’m well on my way to becoming a real writer.
I’m thrilled to start working with Healthcare-NOW because I believe a single-payer health care system is far superior to our current, failed private health care system. Not only is single-payer humane, but it’s far cheaper than our current system, despite what the right would have us believe.
I don’t want to get into too many statistics, but I should mention that we pay twice as much, per-capita, than Germany (which has universal health care) does–$6,102 per capita vs. $3,005 per capita–and receive poorer service. Also, we leave about 45 million people without any insurance, causing about 22,000 needless deaths a year.
