Poverty and Health Care

Firedoglake has a wonderfully moving post on the price some people pay for the lack of access to health care.  The piece looks at the moment in last week's Democratic debate (the YouTube debate) in which a man reveals that he spent his first fifty years with a cleft palate and only recently received surgery , allowing him to speak, after a benefactor paid.   There must be a better way!  Unfortunately, as Paul Krugman notes in today's New York Times (subscription required), this message doesn't seem to be making it to the current administration.
