We’ll continue to fight even as others continue to allow huge megafortunes for insurance and pharmaceutical CEOs while they deny care capriciously to those desperately in need.
We’ll continue to fight because we care about the patients we treat every day with horrible but preventable conditions—preventable had they had access to healthcare. We’ll continue to fight because the money that all of us already pay for healthcare—including having to pay for the care of those who are under- or uninsured—should be used directly for healthcare, for providing prevention and wellness care and treatment when you all need it, not for second and third houses and swimming pools and yachts for CEOs. And, we’ll continue to fight for and care for everyone, even those who fight to obstruct this humane evolution.
