45,000 Deaths From Lack Of Insurance

If Republicans really believed what they say about Death Panels, and of course they don't ... If they really cared about the American people, and that's a big "no" as well ... they would do something positive about getting us health care reform.

Here's the stats:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Nearly 45,000 people die in the United States each year -- one every 12 minutes -- in large part because they lack health insurance and can not get good care, Harvard Medical School researchers found in an analysis released on Thursday.
They should look at it this way. That's "9/11" 15 times every year. They were willing to take us to the ends of the earth, to fight any enemy no matter how long it took, over one 9/11. But now they cozy up to the terrorists who are trying to maintain the status quo, who seek to exploit the American people and profit off our deaths.

They demagogued the whole issue with the fear-mongering line "They're pulling the plug on Grandma." Well, honey, look at it this way. They're already pulling the plug on Grandma. Only it's you, the Republicans, and the big business interests you've hooked up with.

The Republicans: the "Party of No," the party of death.
