Denial of Claims = Death Panels

Watch the segment below, from Keith Olbermann's Countdown.

Does every claim denied result in the death of a patient? Of course not.
Does every claim denied result in a bankruptcy personal bankruptcy? No, but too many do. (About 700,000 bankruptcies in the United States result every year from medical bills.)

But, it is important to note, this only happens in the United States of America. Yes, the mighty USA preys on its citizens and allows thousands to die every year because preserving for profit health care is more important than protecting lives. "Pro-lifers": have you no shame after all?

Since the number of people that die every year from preventable medical conditions is, according to most estimates, between 18,000 and 22,000, one wonders why the death of 3,000 people on 9/11 sparked two wars, at least one of which was entirely arbitrary, but the deaths of sick people have not sparked an equal desire to wage war on sickness. Follow the money, as usual.
