Guarantee These Rights

From the Cato Institute: "I once attended a dinner discussion with a bunch of health care big-wigs. One highly educated woman — she is both an M.D. and a J.D. — began the dinner by declaring, “We need to make health care a right in this country, just as we make education a right.” Later in the dinner, she complained that her organization’s materials must be written at an 8th-grade level to be understood by their target audience. I interrupted to ask how she reconciled those two statements: if we really have created a right to education, why the poor reading comprehension? And if we create a parallel right to health care, how many people’s medical care will be stuck at an 8th-grade level? Her answer was non-responsive."

Liked what you read? I am looking for work.
