I urge everyone, no I beg everyone to please watch the video at the above link from Keith Olbermann’s latest show. I know not all of you will agree with him nor me, but on this one issue, if not on any other, we must all stand together. If you have empathy, if you can feel for others, if you see the value in your fellow man or woman than you can not stand idly by while so many of your neighbors needlessly perish for lack of money or insurance. Life should not have a profit margin attached to it.
Work to inform those who are unaware, challenge those who espouse ignorance of the facts, pressure those who represent us at all levels of government to do not what is politically or financially correct, but what is right. If you have money, contribute to programs such as the one Keith mentions or the likes of Remote Area Medical who help to bring healthcare to those who need it most. Do whatever you can big or small to make a difference here, for all you know, you just might be saving a life.
I can’t speak for us all, but I can tell you, I myself would gladly pay more taxes if even one life more would be saved because of it.
