And grown men wept - at least this one did

I think I am finally beginning to understand the seemingly senseless resistance to a sensible means of providing access to medical care in the country of my birth. Fully 50% of my countrymen believe that believe that God will reverse a terminal illness if one just prays.

Unfortunately I somehow doubt that these 50% match up very well with the 65% of Americans who "had medical bill problems or debt, went without needed care because of cost, were uninsured for a time, or were underinsured" in 2007. If it did there wouldn't be a problem then, would there? I hope these 50% of the people are unnecessarily cluttering up hospital wards or taking up doctors time.
