Reader Opinion: Health care just as education

We reached consensus decades ago that basic education for our population was necessary for our country to be successful. It was in our own self interest.

It may be that we will, eventually, reach consensus that basic health care is necessary for our country to be successful. It may be in our own self interest.

Basic education and basic health care are foundations for learning and vitality; to be able to design, lift and drive the increasingly complex components we need to survive and thrive.

As we now afford basic education, we will later afford basic health care. It is in all of our own best interests.
