    45,000 Americans a year die from lack of insurance. Why would anybody want this travesty to continue? The government needs to quit debating and act before more lives are lost!

    Some say it's b/c the uninsured wait longer to get help and then it's too late. Just a theory I heard. I don't have insurance. Luckily I rarely get sick but if I had to go to the emergency room that bill could easily put me in bankruptcy so I would prob wait too.
