If you want to get riled up over healthcare, here are some things to think about:
Every 10 minutes, someone in the world dies of HIV/AIDS, a disease that we now have the capacity to expunge from the face of the planet.
Half a million people (most under the age of 5) will die this year of Malaria, a disease that is both treatable and preventable.
Lack of access to clean water kills more people than almost ANYTHING else and would only cost $20 billion to make it available to everyone (by comparison, americans spend $450 billion/ year on "Christmas").
One in four children in the United States goes to bed hungry every night.
