Letter — Old Europe worth a look
March 19, 2003
President Bush chastised European nations for being seeped in “old thinking.” Who really embraces old thinking? The U.S. is the only industrialized nation without universal health care coverage for all its citizens while old thinking European countries have universal health care that protects every man, woman and child. Guaranteed health care should be a universal right for all citizens, because it allows everyone the freedom to experience life to its fullest. When we’re talking about health care, I’ll take European “old thinking” over American corporate greed any day.
