Dying for health care reform

Montanans are dying for health care reform, writes former Montana Congressman Pat Williams in the Missoulian.  “The lack of insurance, fear of costs, failure to go to a doctor or hospital, are all causing more deaths in Montana than are homicides. It is estimated that in just the first eight years of this decade more than 600 Montanans died because they had no health care insurance. That averages two deaths each week,” Williams writes in piece urging health care reform.
