and while we're at it

In addition to single-payer health care in this country for all, we also need to form a single-payer public legal corps so that ordinary people have access to the same kind of justice as the wealthy. I realize that criminal defendants already have public defenders to represent them, but there are too many times that wealthy individuals, groups, or companies use their ability to out-spend and out-wait people with less resources available for them to watch out for their own interests. It is time for the ordinary citizens to finally have equal power to the wealthy when it comes to civil matters.
