It's the fight against death

October 7 Keith Olbermann Comment about Health Care Reform.

It's the fight against death.


Keith Olbermann's special comment of October 7 got personal. He experienced firsthand and personally the broken system we call Health Care. The difficulties he went through with his ailing Father were unexpected to Keith even though he was well aware of others' (especially those without insurance) suffering under this system. But he had money, isn't that enough in Capitalistic America to protect you from becoming a victim of the Health and Insurance Industry’s gluttony?

Yes indeed, as Olbermann earnestly commented, money had saved his father from needless suffering and loss of dignity. This made Keith even more compassionate to the plight of those who have no leverage. His money did afford some of the best attention by medical personnel thus making him even more aware of, how those with no health insurance must endure the lack of self-respect to which a society without responsiveness will put them through.

Having empathy and concern for others can be a misfortune because there is so little one can do to help the forgotten ones. That's the way the Insurance Industry would like those who can't afford their high premiums to become... FORGOTTEN.

It's only people with a platform such as Mr. Olbermann, who can bring to light the outrageous greed in this country where bottom-line is more revered than humaneness. I guess if they could just get rid of those who can't line their pockets, they would do so but since we are a nation of laws all they can do is lie, mislead and spend exuberant amounts of money lobbying their status quo.

Thank all that is good, for Keith Olbermann, he is the guiding light to benevolent thinking of which we all, Conservatives and Liberals alike, can follow, if you happen to possess a heart. He truly is A VOICE OF REASON. thinkingblue

"Since August 23rd of this year I have interacted daily
with our American Health Care system and often done so to the
exclusion of virtually all other business. It is not undercover
reporting, and it is not an expert study of the field, but since
that day, when my father slid, seemingly benignly, out of his bed
and onto the floor of his home, I have experienced with growing
amazement and with multiplying anger, the true state of our
hospitals, our doctor's offices, our insurance businesses, our pharmacies.

My father's story as a patient and mine as a secondary
participant and a primary witness has been eye-opening and
jaw-dropping. And we are among the utterly lucky ones, a fact
that, by itself, is terrifying and infuriating.

And thus tonight, for all those who we have met along the way,
those with whom we have shared the last two months inside the
belly of the beast, and for everyone in this country who will be
here and right soon tonight, Countdown will be devoted entirely
to a Special Comment on the subject of health care reform in this
country." - Keith Olbermann Special Comment of October 7th
