We once had a Public Health Care Program.
It was in the 50s.
We needed it because our children were dying. And those that didn’t die were often disfigured and horribly crippled.
And it affected rich and poor alike. Those with and without insurance, jobs, and money.
In fact, it is still a threat in the third world.
As you can tell, that Health Care Program was a failure….because nobody remembers.
It was Polio, Infantile Paralysis.
