I can find similar stories all over the world.

Apparently, you haven't had much experience with the health care system in this country.

Excerpt:

A 58-year-old man died of cardiac arrest after waiting 19 hours in the emergency room, the Dallas Morning News reported Monday.

Mike Herrera, who helped his family start a chain of restaurants, went to Parkland Memorial Hospital just after 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 19 complaining of a stabbing sensation in his stomach.

There were 164 people ahead of him. Another 180 new patients would walk through the ER doors during the next 19 hours.

A surveillance video obtained by the Dallas Morning News showed that Herrera continued to wait in a chair, until 9:26 a.m. Saturday, when a physician finally ordered laboratory tests and an x-ray.

When Herrera's sister arrived after noon, he went into cardiac arrest. Medical staff worked for more than two hours on him, but by 2:48 p.m. he was pronounced dead.

Man Dies of Heart Failure Outside Hospital Emergency Room
Thursday, November 01, 2007

By Robert Holguin

SYLMAR, Oct. 31, 2007 (KABC-TV) (KABC) -- A 33-year-old man suffering from chest pains goes untreated and dies at the place it should have been prevented: a hospital emergency room. Wednesday, that hospital is under scrutiny.

The allegations involve Olive View UCLA Medical Center in Sylmar. The family is searching for answers following their loved one's death.

A nurse at Olive View has already been fired and an investigation is underway as to how a 33-year-old man who came to the hospital for emergency care ended up dying after waiting hours to see a doctor.

Christopher Jones was having chest pains; he was shaking; his left arm was going numb -- all classic symptoms of a heart attack.

Right.  The "real health care plan" we have deals with important health issues such as student loans.

Or like what the bills calls for on page 1312, a "Ready Reserves Corp/Civilian Security Force". What the hell does that have to do with healthcare, having a Stasi style civilian force? Now remember, were supposedly the mindless sheep that sit around all day and watch Faux News(which I rarely do).
