America to Sick People: Drop Dead!

Is America the meanest, least compassionate, most uncaring nation on earth? Maybe the people aren't, but the United States government certainly is.

There are men and women in Congress who would have you and me suffer and die rather than give up the money that insurance and other "health industry" companies give them.

There are men and women at insurance and other "health industry"companies that will sentence you to pain, suffering and death in order to live lavish lives.

These are the facts of life. This is what America is all about. It is a shameful, sinful, horrifying place to live for people who do not have health insurance.

We walk through our days on eggshells. Maybe we wake up with a pain. There's nothing we can do about it. Maybe our eyesight is deteriorating. "So what?" America says, "Go blind."

Maybe we have a cancer growing where once we thought we had it removed. When we had health insurance, we could go get a scan and check. Now all we can do is worry that it might come back.

America says, "Fuck you, our bottom line is more important. We don't really care if you drop dead or not. Even if you have enough money to pay the rates we set, you've been sick. Go away."

Our own eyes have seen and our own ears have heard the viciousness of Republican politicians and "reporters" and voters and the stooges that the "health care" industry has pimped to appear at the town meetings. We've heard the outrageous lies. All of it to make sure those of us without health insurance suffer and die.

In the past six weeks, we have seen the face of evil. Every single politician and every person who wants to keep those of us without health insurance in danger, and every single insurance company employee who has ever been involved in denying coverage because of the bottom line....that's the face of evil.

If America comes out of this process with anything less than a way for this nightmare to end, those of us on the outside looking in will know, as we pass hospitals and doctors offices and know that we are not welcomed there, that we must suffer and die at the hands of other Americans.
