Remember when Bush so innocently stated,
“I mean, people have access to health care in America. After all, you just go to an emergency room.”
Yeah, I do. And so does New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. He writes a great Op/Ed about all the excuses the administration uses to avoid dealing with the health care crisis.
No, Bush. It’s not just the illegal immigrants who don’t have health care. It’s the lower and middle classes who work and still don’t receive the care they need. Don’t forget about the one in four Americans who are also underinsured.
