Finally the United States joins other industrialized nations in setting a policy that declares health care as a right not a privilege. Since working artists often live on the edge, working part time jobs or doing freelance work, this bill means that we will have access to affordable coverage. I would prefer a single payer system like the one they have in the United Kingdom, but this is a great start. A certain amount of fear, pressure, and apprehension is gone from our lives. We can focus on making a living and making art.
Passage of Health Care Bill Means Better Life for All Americans, especially Artists!
