It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)

If there were no poor, how do you think rich men would live?
Rosa Guy, writer

Well, we can rest easy now. The number of Americans without health insurance may have been overstated. Instead of 45 million Americans, in the richest country in the world with the most advanced medical technology, there are only 36 million without the ability to be seek medical attention for what ails them.

Whew, now President Bush can point to an achievement for the common folk. Oh, wait. I nearly forgot he wants to cut Medicaid, which will push the numbers back upward. This president and the members of Congress should all feel embarrassed and ashamed of the abundance of this country (see B2’s Conspicuous Consumption... and Disposal ), but yet we are so greedy and selfish.

I think Bush needs to realize how big of a crisis there is in the health care system. He needs to work on improving health care not making it worse.
