I believe a 7 year old is just as entitled to quality healthcare as a 70 year old. If it is government’s job to make sure the elderly have access to medical treatment, why isn’t it their job to make sure children do too? Not all parents have jobs that offer healthcare benefits for themselves, let alone their children, and even fewer have affordable benefits.
Do not give me the Medicaid argument. Needy seniors qualify for Medicaid, too, but we don’t limit subsidized healthcare only to them. Its time we started caring for our future as well as our past.
