Critics of America’s new health care reform are alarmed that it’s a giant step towards socialism. I’m OK with that. American socialism doesn’t have to be like Russian socialism was. American socialism can be based on the Judeo-Christian ethic of caring for the least among us. It can be based on compassion, and charity, and just plain old good-neighborliness.
Call it what you will, providing health care insurance to an additional 30,000,000+ people is a Good Thing.
