Wealthy Who Support the 99% Express a Common Sentiment

I followed a link from one of DDay’s posts and found this web site,”We Are the One Percent; We Stand With the 99% “. There is one consistent theme running through their pictures and writings. That theme is always having available health care.

Health care is still my number one issue having lost my brother two January’s ago at 47 because he had no health insurance. I have yet to understand how equal access to quality health care is inconsistent with “…promote the general Welfare“, and “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…”.

I find it disturbing that there is such a large portion of our population that are so base non-compassionate that they value profit (or the rights of others to it) as more important than sharing a portion of  the nation’s wealth for everyone’s general Welfare.

The wealthy folks posting on that web site seem to understand that access to quality health care should be one of the defining acts of society that truly make us civilized. That for profit health care is just social Darwinism.
