At current rates, 540,000 Americans will die over the next 12 years simply because they can't afford insurance.

As forcefully noted by Dr. Stephanie Woolhandler, a Harvard University Professor involved in the latest study, even the so-called "public option" would not come close to resolving the crisis in American health care. Single-payer (Medicare for All) is the only solution.

Every member of Congress who fails to vote for single-payer [Medicare for All] will be responsible for the deaths of at least 1000 Americans over the coming 12 years. Already, each obstructionist member of Congress will have murdered at least seven Americans by the end of this month [of September]. Each errant lawmaker's body count includes only his victims who died lacking health insurance.

A much greater number of Americans die monthly the victims of insurance company fraud. The for-profit firms refuse to honor the legitimate claims of clients who paid their premiums in good faith expecting their health costs would be covered when the need arose. This has resulted in foreclosures and bankruptcies throughout the country. It is a major cause of the present economic woes. Soon, Harvard will publish the number of individuals who died because their insurance company failed to cover a life-saving procedure.

Unquestionably, this is consumer fraud and murder. In a society truly under the rule of law, murderers do not enjoy golden parachutes fashioned from fraud. Clearly, this lamentable situation extends throughout the economy to cripple it.
