Uncle Tom’s Blabbin’

From Think Progress:

Speaking in the UK yesterday, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) [….] claimed that, under the U.S. system, “no American is denied health care”:

By the way, there’s no one denied health care in America. There are 47 million people who don’t have health insurance, but no American is denied health care in America.


Original DVD cover.

The audience, understandably, greeted DeLay’s preposterous claims with “derisive laughter,” according to the AP. A recent report showed that for the sixth straight year, jobholders continued to see a decline in employer-provided health insurance, with 38 states seeing “significant” drops in benefits offered by employers.

Observers estimate that anywhere from one to 18 percent of Americans are denied health insurance because of pre-existing health conditions. These conditions can range from heart disease to high cholesterol to yeast infections to being too skinny.

…snip…

As Michael Moore’s film “Sicko” showed so clearly, millions more Americans who have health insurance are denied the care they need due to insurers’ “cost-cutting strategies.”

    Two “thumbs” up, WAY UP, nonnie! Had to laugh immediately when I read the title.

    Imagine if DeLay and his family had to face a contagious or hereditary chronic illness – without either money or health insurance…

    Try not to smile.
