This Des Moines Register editorial spells out our problems so cleanly that I’d link to it anyway, but they also mention this bute:
Just a few weeks ago, this editorial page told the story of Jan and Gary Clausen, who didn’t have the option of buying health insurance through an employer. They went out on their own and bought AARP-endorsed plans for about $700 a month. They were left with more than $200,000 in medical bills after Gary was diagnosed with cancer.
If you support the current system, you support a system that does this to people.
Or this, Shadowfax’s incredibly sad CT scan and story about a 54 year-old uninsured woman with metastatic cancer who will soon be leaving her 4 children behind.
Bravo, bravo, encore, encore!
