Rave: Kudos to writer's letter about health care

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDOctober 20, 2013 

Bravo Herald letter writer Oct. 13: "Health care is not only a right, but a necessity."

I have lived in Hong Kong, where health care is a right for all. I have lived in France, where health care is a right for all. I have lived in England, where health care is a right for all. I have visited or spent time in Germany, Belgium, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Monaco, Switzerland, Japan, Singapore, Canada and Portugal, where health care is a right for all. You are quite right, it is time we in the.United States move into the 21st century.
