If you are one of those dupes who have bought the Republican argument that Americans don't want the government between themselves and their doctor, you should really read this.* And by the way, I really hope your insurance handles your claim as the claims of the article were handled. If on the other hand you are smart enough to know better (which should be a given, since you are reading this blog) you should send this on to a dupe.
*You should also read this if you believe that Democrats are "statists", if you believe that the DMV and the Post Office are a disgrace, or if you believe--like Ronald Reagan famously said--that the nine most frightening words in the English language are "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help." (Reagan must have had a crystal ball to foretell Bush's handling of the many disasters he--quite literally--sat through.)
