Here on this blog, I have posted the Numbers over and over. Numbers that represent Real People that are effected by our HealthCare Crisis I will post them again in this post. The reason that Grayson said what he said was that he read the Harvard Study about 45,000 dying per year with Inadequate Health Care and Insurance. (( He was on CNN in the "Situation Room" explaining what he thinks of the Repugs, video is posted down below.))
(1) Originally in August I found research that Kaiser and Urban Institute stated that up to 22,000 Per year are Dying with No Health Insurance and inadequate care. The Truth is that the Insurance Companies ARE the Death Panels dictating Care, and cancelling care and treatments. Early September NYT published the Harvard Study that said that more than 45,000 are dying per year.
Here is the NYT Article about the Harvard Study of ALL the People Dying per year with Inadequate care and healthcare insurance....45,000 a year is alot of people. That is 123 people a day, and 6 an hour....that is alot. Think of it this way, every 12 Minutes Someone is Dying Without Healthcare....
(2) 500,000 People/a year are fighting Cancer without enough care, after their Insurance is cancelling or capping Care and Treatments.( Cancer Organizations verified these numbers).These same people are losing Homes for Care and going Bankrupt. 62% of ALL Bankruptcies are related to Medical Debt, it is the Leading Cause of Bankruptcy.
When President Obama has spoken about the Healthcare Crisis, he has admitted that 30 Million have been Cancelled by Insurance Companies. It is a Civil Rights Issue, people being cancelled for their own History or Health are being denied Care, that is Discrimination. Millions of people denied care and now at risk of Dying Young and dying without Care. Have we lost Our Moral Compass ?

Does the WhiteHouse have it's OWN Healthcare Bill in the Works ?
Today the WhiteHouse released More Stats and Information about how badly this Insurance Crisis and HealthCare Crisis could be based on studies by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.Please read the Whitehouse post.
The Actual Study that the Whitehouse is examining about how Badly we need Insurance and Healthcare reform, from Robert Woods Johnson Foundation clearly shows how the numbers will skyrocket of people without Health Care and Without Insurance.....it ain't pretty.
Here is Grayson on the Situation Room CNN on 9.30.09 Today setting the Gang straight,Thank You to Human for finding it...do check out his blog too, it is a good read... :
And since the Repug Ignoramuses demanded an Apology...he gave one....to the Dead.
Another Huffpost Healthcare Horror Story...of a health professional that went through hell due to medical debt, also shows you what I have been saying for months- if you are a health professional of 20 years....good luck trying to find any work...much less a job with healthcare benefits...
Thursday Update :
Pelosi at her weekly address stated that the House Bill will have a Public Option, Period.
