In this election, less is unacceptable

Change party affiliation if necessary to do it, but vote June 5 for change that will work to promote the Iowa value of caring for people. We can’t accept anyone to run our government who promotes less. Health insurance is not health care, and health care is a human right.

Profits are the motive of health insurance companies, not care, and companies are not accountable to us, the voters. The Healthy Iowa Program, HF 2352, is waiting in our legislature; accept only a governor who promotes it. That gubernatorial candidate is Cathy Glasson.

We can’t afford to continue allowing families and small businesses to go bankrupt from a single illness. If you still question how to pay for universal health care, ask Congressional candidate Courtney Rowe who says truthfully: “Justice is always called radical by those profiting from injustice.”

Both of these women can create change in health care and deserve support in the June 5 primary.
