I just saw the iTunes podcast of Keith Olbermann's Countdown on MSNBC.  I cried.  It was difficult to watch and listen to Keith talk about his father.  Dad passed away 4 years ago.  Dad was well taken care of by the Veterans Administration and Medicare.  The supplemental insurance that Dad religiously maintained had only to pay for a very small part of his medical expenses.  Unfortunately, not everyone has access to the government health care programs that my father had and the money to buy a supplemental health care policy.  In America, to survive the American health care system, as it is now, you either have money and/or you have insurance.  If you have neither, you die..........  No one should have to die for the lack of "insurance" or money.

And a Note to the Politicos:  Saving American lives at home or abroad should be the right thing to do, not a partisan issue.
