Nurses value life, not just breathing and a pulse, but a quality life that entails an opportunity to fulfill your potential and use your talents and skills.
With the cost of health care premiums exceeding the average mortgage payment for a home, life has been sold to the highest bidder: corporations that profit from you dying.
Why? Because politics are driven by super Political Action Committees (PACS) that spend billions to elect politicians that push special interest groups like healthcare corporations who are more interested in making money than alleviating suffering.
The only special interests that nurses have are our patients. We want healthier lifestyles, affordable medications and compassionate care.
Bernie Sanders is the only candidate that embodies these values. I challenge you to look at Bernie’s track record, study the other candidates’ platforms and show me a leader who can deliver the caring, compassion and community that we need to turn our country around. Vote nurses values because every nurse knows that life is a terrible thing to waste.
