We Already Have Universal Health Coverage!

"Few people realize that end stage renal disease is a disease for which we have universal coverage, irrespective of your age right here in the United States... The principle of covering everyone for serious diseases is already well established...  one way we could have had universal health insurance in this country was to extend the number of organs covered.  Imagine if we covered the heart and the liver".
