Why health care reform makes economic sense
Most Republicans have not been swayed by moral arguments in the health care debate in the US. Some will say, “Yes, we’d like to, but we can’t afford it!” Or more callous, “They should take care of themselves.” I wouldn’t expect Christian arguments to take center stage in the national political stage, but it’s appalling to hear Christians ignore a clear mandate to care for those at the margins of society.
Back in December, I posted “Proof the US needs health care reform in one picture“. That graphic was improved upon, so here’s the sequel. It’s also today’s installment in the Festival of Infographics. This shows that, based on every Republican’s favorite measure (their own wallet), health care reform makes sense. So can we get on with it?
