Health care accounts for one-sixth of our country’s economy. But more than that, it is desperately important to the mother with a sick child, an adult caring for aging parents, or our neighbors who have a disability. To them, it’s more than numbers on a spreadsheet. It’s peace of mind or maybe even life and death.
That’s too important to leave to partisan politics and secret negotiations.
