Quote of the YEAR

Sojourners called this the "Quote of the Day" but I think it goes beyond that. This is really an important awareness for us all to have:

It was one of the primary reasons I moved here. I couldn't afford health care in the United States. … To me, this is the best system that there is.

--Judy Harvey of Prescott Valley, who now lives in Alamos, Sonora, on why American retirees are moving to Mexico.
UPDATE: You can read more about this in the USA Today article entitled "Mexico's health care lures Americans". Also, you might like to look at some comments by Democratic Underground readers right here.

    I have mentioned before and I will say it again, I have an application in Vancouver, BC for a job and have already passed the first resume' screening. Same reason. I am so tired of the hateful divisions in this country; it is completely disheartening to me. And my co-pays, even with insurance are outrageous.
