Thank the GOP for Our Health Care Crisis

More bad news about the dismal state of health care in our country [emphasis added]:
Today, more than one-third of the uninsured — 17 million of the nearly 47 million — have family incomes of $40,000 or more, according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute, a nonpartisan organization. More than two-thirds of the uninsured are in households with at least one full-time worker.
How does the GOP explain how they allowed this to happen under their rule? From this YouTube video:
"Well, that's the omniscient, invisible hand of the free market doing what it does best!"

Well, y'know, all these people have to do is work a little harder, right?

Kidding... But that's how the GOPers think.

I read recently where 1 in 9 kids has no health insurance. What a crime.

Abi, what a crime is right. I think the lack of concern and care for our nation's children is the most egregious failure of the Bush administration.
