I Know This Health Care Reform Issue Has Been Talked to Death...

I can't help but feel ashamed of my own country and the attitudes of people opposed to the reform. Where is the compassion for our fellow human beings? It makes me disappointed and lose faith in this country. Everyone in the first world is disgusted by the U.S.'s attitude towards the less fortunate. I'm sure they think of us as cold hearted selfish evil jerks. It's embarrassing when I talk to my friends from Europe and Canada, they ask me why Americans have this attitude and all I can say is if it doesn't personally affect them (IE not being able to afford insurance for whatever reason) they don't care, #2 it's all about money.

It's always about money here. Profit before people. Sad.
