More Americans Are Dying Due To Lack of Insurance than Any Enemy Attack Ever Caused - Democratic Underground:
"roughly 126 thousand Americans who died from lack of insurance since 2002. In that same time period, the government has increased spending by over 350 billion dollars per year. If that money had gone to saving American lives of the people dying from lack of healthcare instead of fighting illegal wars in Iraq, tens of thousands more Americans would be alive today.
It really is that simple.
If Congress is truly interested in the defense and security of American people, then Congress needs to dramatically cut military spending and put forth a dramatic public option that will allow all Americans to be able to go to the doctor." (emphasis added)
