The Health Care Crisis

I host a radio talk show" The Living Well Hour" on WBAP, News/Talk 820. One of the themes of the show is that , as a nation, we can no longer afford to be sick. I am very impressed by Gov. Mike Huckabee's recent comments on the health care issues. The benefit of Michael Moore's movie, "Sicko", is that the movie brings health care issues to light. The first issue that needs to be addressed with regards to health care is whether health care is a commodity that you can have access to if you can afford it, or is health care a right that we have as Americans and that it fits in a category under "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness".
I do feel that we have a health care crisis with regards to cost and access to care.
I invite Gov. Huckabee to be a guest on " The Living Well Hour" to discuss these health care issues.
