If you'd like to hear a recent interview with Vic, where he discusses his insurmountable bills, despite having health insurance, here's the NPR interview. I hate to get political, but I'm going to: If this interview doesn't make your blood boil regarding the state of health "care" in this country nothing will. I won't go so far as to say what I want to say because I clearly don't know all the factors, but I'll just say this: Our current system is responsible for many, many preventable deaths in this country. We need single-payer. Anything short of this is criminal and inhumane. End of story.
