  •  Do women die of breast cancer, Mitt? (8+ / 0-)

    I assume you know that they do, since your wife is a survivor.  Do you think your wife would be alive today if she hadn't had health insurance, so couldn't get regular mammograms and exams, and couldn't afford to see a doctor if she felt a lump herself?

    You don't simply go to an ER to get your regular mammogram.  I couldn't have gone to an ER to get the colonoscopy that found a pre-malignant polyp in pretty much the same location as the colon cancer that killed my father.  I could do that because I had health insurance.  Had I not had health insurance, I might well be dead today.  Had your wife not had health insurance, SHE might well be dead today.  By the time either of our conditions reached the stage where they were a medical emergency, it would almost certainly have been too late.

    Bin Laden is dead. GM and Chrysler are alive.
