    I Don't Think It's to Much to Ask

    I don't think it's to much to ask for the citizens of the world's wealthiest country to be guaranteed health care. And its quite clear that our current system has MAJOR flaws. The US spends more on health care than any other nation, and our health care is currently ranked...
