44000 Dead Americans a year

While Obama endeavours to overcome the special interest groups and bring about health reform in the USA , SOYMB came across this new report.

More than 44,000 Americans die every year — 122 every day — due to lack of health insurance.
Said lead author Dr. Andrew Wilper. “We doctors have many new ways to prevent deaths from hypertension, diabetes and heart disease — but only if patients can get into our offices and afford their medications.”

Co-author Dr. Steffie Woolhandler said "...Politicians in Washington are protecting insurance industry profits while sacrificing American lives.”
