When Someone Tells You We Can't Have Universal Health Care
Respond with this telling statistic.
The United Kingdom has had socialized health care (The National Health Service) for sixty-two YEARS and furthermore, it was established at a time (1946) when the country was nearly bankrupt as a result of having fought for six long years in the Second World War. The program proved to be so successful that every party in the House of Commons embraced it. Indeed, for the next thirty years, no one dared to speak in opposition to the vast amount of good it created in the lives of ordinary Britons.
We can do the same thing here.
