Nurses speak out

A very short article from The Nation that I want to recommend is called "Nurses Say Senate Bill Entrenches Chokehold of Insurance Giants". Here's one paragraph:

"It is tragic to see the promise from Washington this year for genuine, comprehensive reform ground down to a seriously flawed bill that could actually exacerbate the health-care crisis and financial insecurity for American families, and that cedes far too much additional power to the tyranny of a callous insurance industry," says National Nurses Union co-president Karen Higgins, RN.

Specific flaws are listed. But what will really raise your awareness is the comments section. A lot of people are very, very concerned.
