United States Noncompliant with Universal Declaration of Human Rights

From the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
Article 22: Everyone is entitled to realization of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensible for his dignity and the free development of his personality.
Article 23 (3): Everyone who works has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.
Article 25 (1): Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
The U.S. health care system does not even pretend to ensure us these rights. It is time we made it do so.
