1. All people have a right to health care
that includes true preventive care. This means more than just yearly mammograms. It means learning what foods they should eat, the type of exercise they should do, and what supplements they should take to stay healthy. This MUST be individualized--preventive medicine means teaching people to live a healthy lifestyle.

2. Only a public plan
will provide enough competition to force insurance giants to cut their massive overhead and lower costs, while cleaning up the practices that have left sick people without the care they paid for.

There's your talking point.
