massive disconnect against the American electorate by both political parties
once again rears its ugly head in
On August 13, 2004, Elastar Hospital of East Los Angeles closed its doors in bankruptcy with a $10 million debt. It’s one of three LA hospitals closing its doors to patients this year. "We cannot stand any more closures in an emergency system that is on the brink of absolute chaos," said Jim Lott, executive vice president of the hospital. "People are going to start dying. That’s basically what it amounts to."
Closures of three hospitals create greater stress on remaining hospitals. "It’s the waiting time for people on a gurney that’s going to create a crisis," Carol Meyer said, Director of the LA County Emergency Medical Services Agency.
Tens of thousands are at risk.
are they closing?
Tens of thousands of them swarm hospitals with anchor babies, diseases, accidents, murders, drug problems and worse. What do they have in common? They do not pay.
County hospitals lost the ability to serve 75,000 patients in the past 14 months. One official said, "We’re cutting off limbs to stay alive." His greatest fear is that a "chain reaction" could put thousands of American citizens at risk. Some waiting periods for ER wards reach four hours before anyone can see the suffering patient. Surviving hospitals tolerate greater patient loads that grow by the day. It’s a medical nightmare.

Will Bush III solve that crisis? Or will the Democrats come up with a brilliant plan?
Americans cannot understand is why Bush and Kerry ignore this crisis not only
At what point, in this national campaign for the highest office in the land where Bush argues Kerry’s ‘Swift Boat’ adventures in Vietnam while Kerry argues Bush’s ‘AWOL’ adventures in the National Guard--will these two men make a stand on illegal immigration? When will they address what is really happening to Americans? Instead of the Hispanic vote, when will they address the American voter?
