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.
