When are we going to remember that one of the reasons our Constitution was created was to promote the general welfare of the citizens of this great land. If we really want to follow what our founders laid out for us, why are we denying health care to almost 50 million of our fellow citizens? Certainly this isn't how our founders meant for us to promote the general welfare.

Private health-care insurance has delivered us to this point. It's time we try something different.
