Lack of Health Insurance - I know you know this is awful!

The New York Times has written an article on the growing problem of lack of health insurance in the US.

It doesn't really need much commentary. Women bringing on their labour early to try and deliver before their health insurance runs out. No Christmas presents for a child with asthma, so that her mother can buy her medication. Awful. Come on all you rich American philanthropists, there's a lot of people in really desperate circumstances on your doorstep. Yes you have Obama ready to step in, but change to your health system is surely going to take some time and there's a lot of people that need your help now.

Thank God for the NHS!
