"America, now is not the time for small plans."
I cannot believe that the president of the National Center for Policy Analysis could say something so stupid.
Mr. Goodman, who helped craft Sen. John McCain's health care policy, said anyone with access to an emergency room effectively has insurance, albeit the government acts as the payer of last resort. (Hospital emergency rooms by law cannot turn away a patient in need of immediate care.)
What happens when these people leave the emergency room, Mr. Goodman? Who pays for the prescription drugs they might need to stay alive? Access to an emergency room does not constitute health care. Is a homeless person not homeless if they can take advantage of a homeless shelter? No. What an idiotic statement to make.
Barack Obama addressed this and a multitude of other issues in his speech last night at the Democratic National Convention.
America, we are better than these last eight years. We are a better country than this....
The entirety of Obama's speech can be read here.
