Ive heard a lot about FOX and charity from the right wing on this site. Now I know that Sean Hannity is under investigation for what some call a concert scam. I know that Glenn Beck changed the name of his rally from a soldiers theme to God because he couldnt call it a charity if all his expenses were paid. I would be interested to know exactly how much money actually went to the families of soldiers. Then there is MSNBC, sponsoring free health clinics for poor people all across America. I think number 9 is coming up soon. I havent heard a thing about these clinics except finding out about them on the Internet. Reading about all the people theyve helped in eye opening. I would be interested in facts. I have had a hard time finding actual numbers on either stations "doings". ------------------ This according to Maddow would show once and for all what an abysmal failure the American health care system is, despite a recent Gallup poll showing that 80 percent are satisfied with the quality of medical care available to them, including 39 percent who are very satisfied. As has occurred in other states, doctors and nurses would donate their time to provide free care to thousands of constituents of these senators to regular Americans in these states who can not afford health care as it is provided by the health care non-system that weve got now, Maddow said. Maddow alluded to a similar clinic held in Houston last month that drew 1,500 looking for treatment. This blatant exploitation of the poor, she said, would be an opportunity not only to give away health care, but to shame politicians into agreeing with her left-of-center ideology. The strategy at work here is that if funds can be raised to hold clinics like these in Arkansas and Montana and Nebraska and Louisiana and Nevada, it will be a way of doing well by doing good. Americans who are un-served by the current system will get some health care and this dramatic heart-wrenching means of providing it to them could shame their senators into getting out of the way of reform.
