Will Healthcare Be Important in the Upcoming Elections?

I’ve been running a poll on my About.com patient empowerment site, asking the question Tom Brokaw asked in the debate this week:  Is healthcare a right?  or a responsibility?

Do we as individuals believe we should all have a right to healthcare coverage, similar to the way we have police protection, or fire protection, or education, or even library books?

Or should healthcare be looked at more as an individual responsibility, one we must pay for ourselves, such as food or shelter?

You still have time to vote if you wish — right here.

But the next question has now popped up:  are we so frustrated by trying to understand where the economy is going, how it tanked, and what the bailout means that we will now rest our voting decisions on healthcare reform?

Come on over to about.com and let us know what you think!
