    You mean to tell me that an insurance company is denying coverage to a policy holder? I'm aghast. You mean an insurance company is making a life or death decision as to who does and does not receive care? I'm aghast. I thought this is the argument against goverenment run healthcare; that we don't want bureaucrats making these life and death decisions for us?

    This doesn't necessarily mean the goverenment would do any better, but there is a very strong case to be made that insuarnce companies are not the answer either. How often does Medicare deny coverage in comparison to the insurance companies? Hmmm.

    It reminds me of Bush Jr. telling the woman who had three jobs to support her family that that was a good thing ... very American.
