They have failed us.

Have you read this article on the NYTimes front page?  Wait, before you do, make sure you have Kleenex or can control your outrage.

This is completely unacceptable.  Our healthcare system in America in 2013 reminds me of the stories that my grandfather told me about the pesthouse his mother died in back in 1920.

There is simply no good excuse to treat anybody this badly.  If you are a Republican supporting this level of cruelty and heartlessness, you should be ashamed to call yourself a Christian.  People are dying from untreated illnesses they couldn’t afford to pay for before Obamacare and because of Obamacare, they will have no access to some of the only charity hospitals that will still accept them.

All because some toilet paper magnates would rather spend hundreds of millions of dollars paying bullies to spread lies and deception than pay their damn taxes.

It’s horrible.

And people with company paid health insurance shouldn’t get comfy.  The bad guys have already done away with pensions.  It’s only a matter of time before the medical benefits face the music.

You do not want to end up like the patients in this article.
