When ordinary people speak out, it resonates in a place pundits can’t touch. It reminds us all that passing laws is more than just an intellectual pursuit, or a philosophical argument, or a thorny accounting problem. Our hearts are a part of the equation we rarely witness in the media. This segment of The Last Word on MSNBC opened up the heart of health care in the US.
It reminded me of Jimmy Kimmel’s frank speech about the painful reality of watching loved ones suffer through health problems, and the emotional toll it takes on families.
Food for thought.
