sick around america

PBS' Frontline had a good show on last night about this country's ailing health care system called Sick Around America. Sad, though not as entertaining as Michael Moore's Sicko.

Wondering like so many others if this time our health care system will really be fixed, or if dirty politics will get in the way yet again.

Someone I work with recently took his mother home to their native country of Columbia so she could get dental work done because she couldn't afford it here. While there, my co-worker got braces because it was so inexpensive...even with our dental coverage, it still cost a lot less to get it done in Columbia. Crazy.
