The movie "John Q" (about a desperate father, who holds a hospital
staff and patients hostage to force the decision-makers to give a
life-saving heart transplant to his dying son) may be fiction, but
there is a sad
underlying reality. When it comes to health care, those who are
uninsured, or underinsured are out of luck.
House Concurrent Resolution 99, which is sponsored by U.S.
Representative John Conyers and other members of the Congressional
Universal Health Care Task Force, should be passed without delay.
This resolution directs Congress to enact legislation by October of
2004 providing all Americans with comprehensive, affordable, and
quality health care. Congress should get on board, and enact universal
(preferably single-payer) health care now!
