    Hey Jerry,

    I know, it's iniquitous isn't it? Apologies for the satirical article, but we Brits are prone to handle outrageous circumstances and gross imbalance with humour. But you're right: for the people of the US, getting proper access to healthcare-at-the-point-of-need is a lottery and certainly no laughing matter.

    I guess your Republican politicians have to come clean and state who and what they value most: the "contributions" they accept from Big Medicine lobbyists to do their bidding, or the lives of their fellow citizens...? They can't serve two masters.
