Little Rock Clinic volunteers: If we fail to pass healthcare reform, “we’ll be damned for all mankind”
More from the November 21st, 2009 Little Rock Free Health Clinic.
Meet David and Jane Carounis. David and Jane traveled all the way from Florida to volunteer. When I asked them why they came, after all they don’t live around the corner, they said, "we couldn’t stay away."
I think Jane summed up perfectly, and dare I say, with great understatement, that the United States will be "damned for all mankind" if we fail to pass healthcare reform, including a robust public option.
I’m heading to the Kansas City Free Clinic on December 9 and 10, to bring more images of the American healthcare catastrophe to the world.
Always remember, the United States is the only industrialized nation where healthcare remains a privilege not a right.
