Some perspective on Alan Grayson’s righteous stand

posted by guttermutt

Alan Grayson apologized to the dead and their families in America, because of the results of THIS STUDY recently published by Harvard which concludes that 44,789 Americans die every year because they don’t have health insurance.

44,789 per year. That’s 122-123 every day. That’s a lot. And it’s all in the name of industry profits, and the politicians those profits have bought. Let’s put that into perspective.

2976 people died in the September 11 attacks (hijackers not included as they don’t count as people). That’s more than 15 times less. In the three years following the 9/11 attacks, terrorism killed 2929 people worldwide.

THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY KILLS FAR MORE THAN TERRORISTS

93,325 – 101,841 civilian deaths and 4,262 military service deaths in Iraq, since the 2003 invasion. Using the higher estimate, that’s a total of 106,103 people (not including other coalition or iraqi combatants). That’s over 6 years ago, the healthcare industry kills more in 3 years. That’s half the time!

THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY KILLS MORE THAN WAR

According to the same Harvard study, Nephritis, Nephrosis, etc… (Kidney disease) kills 42,868 American’s every year, and is listed as the 9th leading cause of death in America according to the CDC that’s 1921 less than those killed by lack of health insurance.

THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY IS THE 8TH LARGEST KILLER IN AMERICA

It’s about god damn time someone in Congress made this strong of a stand! I hope upon hope that this is only the beginning.

THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY WILL KILL 123 PEOPLE TODAY

Who will be the next member of Congress to step up to the plate? Stand and deliver for the American’s you represent man!
