The actual "Death Panels"

..are "health care" insurance provider individuals and boards who deny medical procedures for their clients that could save their lives.

Americans spend more per capita on health care than citizens from any other nation in the world.

Do you know that the top cause of bankruptcy in the USA is medical catastrophe debt?

And that is by people who *have* health care "insurance."

Insurance from health care providers who pay more than $1 million/A DAY to advertise and lobby against health care reform. That's from the money paid to them by their clients for health care programs, according to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont. That means he's independent - not a Dem or Rep.

Republicans - to a person - in congress have said they will not vote for any health care bill, even provisions they helped create. So it's up to President Obama and the Democrats to formulate a bill that is viable and works - and is understandable.

It's still shocking to me that the US is the only nation that doesn't take care of the health of its citizens; capitalist and socialist nations have universal health care - their economic structures have not collapsed or even hiccuped because of it.

France and Germany report they are a kiss away from being out of economic recession because their economies are bouncing back so substantially. Both have universal health care.

    I think it is critical that the "Fairness Doctrine" or something like that be re-instituted. The neo-cons have a virtual monopoly of the AM airways (and most other media) and they spew forth their miss-information so effectively the democrats are afraid to use the mandate the American public has given them. Thank goodness for Rachael Madow and the too few others like her that put forth solid well researched rebuttals to these right wing nuts.
