Positive action on health care

There’s a news story going on right now about a nationwide Free Clinic, the person featured is a man who is employed, but uninsured (in Houston) and his wife is employed as well, gets (increasingly rare, especially in Texas) health insurance from her work. The Husband hadn’t been to a doctor in three years. Something the Insurance Corporation Shills at the town halls and Tea Parties refuse to admit even happens.

The Husband received what is a Life Saving diagnosis. Type 2 diabetes.

If he had been left hanging, like the Anti-Americans in the Tea Party want, he would have probably died.

Just one story among hundreds of thousands across the nation today. It’s something to hope for and work for, that this can become less necessary. What kind of testing and diagnosis would he have gotten in the Emergency Room? None.
