60 Minutes - Health Care Report


Recommended Posts

On March 2nd 2008, 60 Minutes aired a special on a health program that runs as a charity in the 3rd world. But today, its running in the United States as well.

One recent weekend they opened a weekend of help in Knoxville, Tennessee. The report shows how bad the United States medical system is getting and what kind of crisis the nation is facing. In this instance they helped nearly 1000 people and had to turn over 400 away who were waiting in line. The report is edited, and the full report went onto talk about how people drove in from hundreds of miles away and many many hours.

I'm not sure that a clear majority of people really understand the problem and why we have the "system" we have, and in fact I bet one of the people in this video is likely to have voted for George W. Bush twice even though she complained about not having health care.

Please take a look at the report and comment.

Here is a video link of Americans going to Mexico for health care:


The report talks about Texas being the state with the most (by percent) without health insurance. 25% of Texans have no health insurance.
