ANOTHER 123 PEOPLE WILL DIE TODAY FOR LACK OF HEALTH INSURANCE

The Miracle Bill won’t go into effect until at least 2014.  Meanwhile PEOPLE CONTINUE TO DIE, if this propoganda be true.  What?  I ask you what is the administration going to do about this?  Because this over the top dishonest moralizing was in part what they used to sell health insurance reform.

(CNN) — A freelance cameraman’s appendix ruptured and by the time he was admitted to surgery, it was too late. A self-employed mother of two is found dead in bed from undiagnosed heart disease. A 26-year-old aspiring fashion designer collapsed in her bathroom after feeling unusually fatigued for days. http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/09/18/deaths.health.insurance/index.html

…..the latest data on U.S. deaths issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on April 17, 2009, you realize that the lack of health insurance is the ninth leading cause of death in the United States.

In other words, lack of health insurance kills more Americans than bacterial infections, suicide, liver disease, high blood pressure, Parkinson’s disease, or homicide.

3,732 Americans die every month,
861 Americans die every week,
123 Americans die every day,…

…simply because they can’t afford health insurance.

No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, whether you’re to the right of me or to the left, it doesn’t matter. We’re all Americans, and 44,789 Americans are dying each year because they don’t have health insurance. That’s too many.

That’s about 179,156 thousand deaths in four years time.

Of course, there has NEVER been a death certificate with Cause of Death is listed as Lack of Insurance.

  1. Sarah Palin’s got a list of 20 who need retirement from public office…it’s not enough but it’s a good start. These folks are living in Districts that McCain and Palin won in the last election. These same tools voted for this health insurance reform Turkey.
