Press Conference with RPW Chairman Reince Priebus

I had the privelege of listening to a press conference given by Reince Priebus to the media is Wisconsin. Clearly some media folks have their own agendas, but that is for a different time.

What I found the most interesting is the question on everyone's mind and the question that most people will not ask is "Who are the people that supposedly have been denied health care?".

This is central to Obama's argument.

My questions:

We have heard that 50 million Americans do not have access to health care. However, nobody will name them. Are they unemployed? Are they welfare recipients? Are they illegal immigrants? Are they senior citizens?

What American has walked into a emergency room and been denied health care? For that matter, what American senior citizen has been denied Medicare coverage?

It is a simple question. Who and where are these folks that are refused medical care in this country? After all this is the reason we so desperately need health care reform, right?
