    This one thing should tip the balance in favor of ACA and yet the “death panels” even debunked over and over get the headlines. I have been the dad in the hospital where my insurance was covering my son, they saved his life twice, and right next to him was a poor kid with no insurance and a family working two or three jobs so they couldn’t even be with him in the hospital for more than a few minutes each day. I saw the $5.00 Aspirins on my son’s chart and learned for the first time how the system really works. I have been “Universal Health Care” ever since and my head wants to explode when I hear some pol say we have the “best health care system in the world” Arrrrggggg!
