More than 18,000 adults in the USA die each year because they are uninsured and can't get proper health care, researchers report in a landmark study released Tuesday.

While Paul can rationalize all he can about Americans' need to make "different health care decisions" the fact is, lots of people make the best decisions they can based on their income or their jobs. As more employers decrease or drop healthcare benefits, it won't be (and never has been) as easy as saying "Get a job with a company that pays healthcare."Corporate America will eventually lead the drive for a universal healthcare system. They will tire of spending the tremendous costs they pay in healthcare premiums, and will realize their employees will be more productive if they are healthy.
