Without risk of becoming too political (hah! Good cartoons are all about politics and society) I will admit that I simply do not buy into the "Socialism never works," argument. Like any cliche, it's true until it isn't.
The political divide in this country (the US) has become much more a gaping chasm than a simple bridgable gap. Most people are not in the extremes, but those who are have become so extreme they're suffering tunnel vision and groupthink.
My son recently became hospitalised for a week and is now in two weeks of daily outpatient. I have health insurance and it's still expensive; I dread to think what the cost would be if I didn't have it. I've certainly quickly hit the roof of my deductible.
My father once told me - no lie - that not everyone deserves healthcare. The question then becomes, who gets to decide?
