Jan Haaken hosts this Memorial Day edition of the Mole in which we remember not only those who have fallen on battlefields, but those who have died from lack of access to medical care.  We also hear a conversation about how good our public schools are, giving the lie to those who run them down so they can privatize them.  All this, plus a commentary about how memories are made and remade.

Remembering Casualties of US Health Care

program date: 
Mon, 05/26/2014
On Memorial Day, we remember the dead, and in this two-part segment, Old Moles Frann Michele and Jan Haaken remember those who have died from the lack of adequate and timely health care in our profit-driven medical system.  First, as today's Well-read Red, Frann points out that over 500 people in Oregon alone have died from lack of medical insurance, and reminds of us the continuing battle for single-payer health care going on across the country. 16:15 minutes (9.3 MB)

Medicare for All Oregon

This Memorial Day, we might pause to remember those who have died in Oregon for lack of health insurance. As Chris Lowe notes on the Health Care for All Oregon webpage, "A 2009 estimate by Physicians for a National Health Program- connected doctors was that there were about 560 such deaths in Oregon that year. The annual order of magnitude is probably the same today. In the next few years it may decline a bit due to OHP expansion and Cover Oregon coverage, but there will still be hundreds of such deaths per year."
