    Ms. Kerry will have the best health care "that money can buy", because that is what it is all about in this country. The rest of you, make sure you keep up on those insurance premiums so you can get what they are "willing" to give. Oh, and don't get too sick or your insurance company will drop you like a hot potato.

    i wonder if those who will be enjoying the new health care reform will have access to the same quality of health care as Ms. Kerry. We all know the answer don't we????

    My heart goes out to her. I certainly hope her treatment will be successful. It's a good thing she wasn't in the two year mammogram cycle recommended by the so called Health Care Panel that her husband and his idiot friends have included in the new health care legislation they are foisting on the American public. A year's delay in discovering the cancer could have had truly dire consequences.
