Friends say the Miami University graduate who died this week after reportedly suffering from swine flu delayed getting medical treatment because she did not have health insurance.But voters are smart enough to know that there are pretty faces with sad stories on each side of every issue, aren't they?
News of Kimberly Young’s death Wednesday, Sept. 23, came as a shock to those who knew the vibrant 22-year-old who was working at least two jobs in Oxford after graduating with a double major in December 2008.Surely, all Americans can anticipate the sad stories forthcoming once the feds run healthcare - of the elders put into a death regime when they're supposed to be in rehab, of the treatments denied because the bureaucracy hasn't approved them yet, the strikes, or the doctors who have to give up their practices because they just aren't making enough money.
Young became ill about two weeks ago, but didn’t seek care initially because she didn’t have health insurance and was worried about the cost, according to Brent Mowery, her friend and former roommate.How about attitude at the hospital that makes you feel like you're at the Motor Vehicle Department?
Later stories suggest Young died of viral pneumonia, rather than swine flu.
