We begin this statement by saying that our vision is that all people would have access to health care. Health care is a necessity, not a privilege.
While universal health care coverage is not yet a reality, we realize that over 48 million Americans according to the 2011 U.S. Census are uninsured. We cannot allow this to continue. Those who are uninsured are most often people who are poor, working people with low-paying jobs, or the unemployed. If health care is needed, they must go to emergency rooms, which is very expensive. The cost is passed on in the form of increased premiums to all who do have health insurance.
