85. Republicans/Drug/insurance companies are being heard while
those who support universal health care are not. The rich are on TV. Republicans always support the rich. They do not want "We the people" to have health care like they have. They want us to die while making their rich donors richer. I see them on TV. When those on TV claim that health care for everyone will destroy health care in America, they forget to remind everyone that right now, with Republican plan, insurance and drug companies in control, America is ranked #38 in the world. Why is it that nobody on TV mentions that fact?

AMERICA IS RANKED #38 IN THE WORLD IN HEALTH CARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111

Can someone say that?!

Insurance companies/drug companies' Republican corporate plan has made America #38 in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


#38!

Hear me?! #38 on plutocrat plan!
