Dude’s lucky he has great health insurance

Dodd Has Prostate Cancer, but Says It Was Caught Early – NYTimes.com
WASHINGTON — Senator Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut announced on Friday that he had prostate cancer, in an early, treatable form, and that he would press ahead with his re-election campaign.

I wonder how many millions of other men don’t get timely screening because they have no coverage.  How many who, upon discovering the usual physical symptoms that bespeak advanced prostate cancer, still don’t go to the doctor because they can’t afford it.  How many simply don’t have the means to make a decision whether to pursue various treatment options — because their only option is none at all.

We need reform, we need it now — and not in 2013, but right now.
