    THEY ARE ALREADY DYING

    IFW.org’s commercial claim if we pass HC reform million will lose their HC and thousand of women with breast cancer will die. Guess what IFW.org, 45 million do not have HC to lose and blacks and other minorities who don have HC, cannot afford it is already dying from cancer and other disease because they cannot see a doctor early enough. They cannot afford private HC and do not qualify for medicare or medicaid.

    Everyone can afford to get routine medical care at federally funded health care clinics that are virtually everywhere,

    HRSA - Find a Health Center - Search Page

    as well as a variety of privately funded free and sliding scale clinics in all metropolitan areas. The gap in coverage in our system is for catastrophic care. So if you can't afford health insurance, you can still get well patient check ups at these clinics, but if they show you have a serious cancer, you will have to decide if you want to live bad enough to spend down your assets so you can qualify for Medicaid.

    This is me, searching frantically in your post for anything other than your word for it. Y'know, this tiny little thing rational adults like to call "proof". Show me 45 million Americans - or even American residents - who do not have health care, cannot afford healthcare AND do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid, and/or are dying because they can't see a doctor soon enough. Put your evidence where your fat mouth is.

    45 million? More than half that number are illegal aliens. 1/4 of that number are liars because they don't want to spend their money for health care. Would rather somebody give it to them for free. The rest are probably legit. As somebody mentioned above, there are Federally Funded Health Clinics that would love to be of service to you with very little or no charge at all. There's one in Rockford, IL, I know. It's called the Crusader Clinic. Like you asked, put up or shut up. Your bluff has been called.

    Of course not, but neither is it the dire situation described in the post I was responding to. Our health care system has serious problems, just as every other health care system does, but it is not the kind of crisis Obama and others dishonestly claimed it was to justify to ram a an ill considered bill through Congress.

    It's pretty bad at 17.6 % of our GDP, and it doesn't accommodate everybody. So that's bad.


    For every 100k of income, 17.6k goes for health care.

    That's staggering.
