    “Humana & Physicians, Heal Yourselves”

    The dispute between Humana and UofL physicians presents a microcosm of why we need universal health care in this most greedy of nations–the only one in the known universe that claims it is “civilized” and does not have such coverage. One reason the World Health Organization ranks our health care as #37 across the globe.
    P.S. Tea Party wingnuts: Before you reply, try to put yourselves in the shoes of the 38 million or so who do not have health care coverage. Sorry, I forget–I know such use of the imagination is an impossibility for many of you.
