Pragmatism and the Healthcare Debate

Opinions abound about healthcare in the United States. But while people with competing ideologies retreat into their corners, people in poverty with mental illness suffer needlessly. The debate rages over whether or not healthcare is a human right, and we’ve ended up with a patchwork of private providers and public assistance. It seems no one is happy. For those of us with coverage from an employer it’s still difficult. My family faced open enrollment this month and it took hours, and a...

The article concluded that “If your loved one has reached an end-stage of life, do the right thing.
