Another Day in Houston

Another Day in Houston

by

An estimated 2,000 people without insurance turned up this weekend for a free health clinic in
Houston, Texas - home to the highest rate of uninsured people in the
country - thus breaking a sorry record for a free clinic. Many of
those who started lining up at 5 a.m. have jobs, but can't afford
insurance. They came to see more than 700 doctors, nurses and
volunteers who came to help, the largest health mobilization since
Katrina. This picture, this reality, in this country - it's a travesty.

Dr. Mehmet Oz: "The part that you have to understand
about Saturday is that it wasn't in response to a disaster - it was
just another day in Houston."
