As fewer and fewer employers want to invest in employee health insurance, the handwriting on the wall reads: national health care for all. What a remarkable humanitarian leap it would be for our federal government to redirect toward the health and well-being of our nation's citizenry those billions now being spent on the war in Iraq with its associated suffering, death and growing hatred toward our beloved country.

Why do we sit by, allowing our tax dollars to pay for this horror instead of helping ourselves to better health care? It is time to demand that our money be spent for constructive domestic change rather than death and destruction.
