Your Money Or Your Life

GREAT story running on MSNBC about some of the really great new cancer drugs we've come up with, but - you know what - people are losing their houses and life savings to get them.

This sort of stuff makes me really, really sad.

The conservatives tell me that our private insurance based system makes these kinds of "miracle drugs" possible.

But what kind of miracle is it when the drugs are so damned expensive you can't afford to eat?

What kind of miracle is it when you have to chose between trying to save your life and trying to keep a roof over your head?

What kind of miracle is it when you live in a country so unimaginably evil that if you DO decide it's too expensive and that you'd like to leave a little behind for your spouse and children to live off of that they won't even fork over the thiopental, pancuronium bromide and potassium chloride that would afford you the dignified exit granted to the kind of first-class scum that rape and murder little girls?
