Request Epilepsy Foundation to lobby for single payer universal health care as a human right

I request the Epilepsy Foundation to lobby for universal health care health care as a human right , which follow it's mission . Many chronic health conditions forced out of the work force due to lack of health care . segregating people and forcing people with health issues out of work force to lack of insurance seems to be discrimination . To work if able and be included to participate in society as a full member would seem a human right . A landmark supreme court case had similar issue Gidean v.weinwright case .

You are so right about the problem of people with epilepsy not being able to work for healthcare needs.  It is one reason why I quit pursuing employment.  If I had a full time job I would not qualify for their insurance and I would earn too much to qualify for government insurance.  It is not fair.
