Universal Health Care: A proposal for an Amendment to the United States Constitution

I've seen so many proposals for Health Care plans, so many good ideas and horrible ideas. And passionate discussions of the nitty-gritty details of what should be covered and how often and when we should stop covering certain things for some people. But I think we are jumping way ahead of ourselves when we talk about these details. There is one very simple question that we should be asking before we get into those issues:

Does everyone have a right to Affordable Health Care?

Since over 40 million of us don't have access to Affordable Health Care, it seems obvious that they don't have that right.

So I'm proposing that we draft an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States granting the right to affordable health care to everyone.

With this call to action, I'm asking for help drafting the amendment, naming it and finding sponsors to introduce it.
