    Every county in this country has a free clinic. The problem is that people don't like to wait for their turn at the free clinics. Tough. My wife went to the doc this week and had an appointment for 2:45. She saw the doctor at 4:30 and we have very good insurance. Waiting to see a doctor is a fact of life.
    You must be on crack if you think anyone can get health care. They can go to free clinics for small issues and they can go to emergency rooms for major issues, but they are still screwed when it comes to medication and treatment. Hospitals aren't in the practice of giving away free heart transplants to people with no insurance.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Crack??? No, but I know how to find information when I need to. For instance, since I'm from Memphis originally, I know about an organization called the National Foundation for Transplants. They've been around since 1983 and their sole mission is to help people get needed organ transplants when they can't afford it. They pay for 100% of the transplant costs.

    Seems to me that many people would rather bitch and complain instead of getting off their asses and finding what resources are available that might help them. Of course, getting free stuff from the government is much easier.

    Any more questions ??

    The illnesses we're talking about are quite extensive:
    New York Sinus Treatment| Sore Throat Treatment| Nasal Congestion Treatment Manhattan

    We're not talking about heart transplants, but since you brought it up, no you won't get that at a free clinic, you will be referred to a hospital and if the person is lucky enough to get on a list, finds a donor match, etc. Those without insurance can apply to multiple national foundations such as:

    NFT
    Have a Heart Foundation
    Heart Transplant Foundation is Beneficiary of Local Charity Performance
    Taylor Berry Heart Transplant Foundation
    Johns Hopkins Children's Hospital | Cove Point Foundation - Congenital Heart Disease

    Apparently crack isn't needed. You can review these and others for yourself.

    You mean any source that doesn't support your view is biased? I understand.
