“So we started the day at a town hall meeting where people who have health care were enraged that Barack Obama was Hitler and a socialist and a fascist, and then we came here, where people lined up at two, three, four o’clock in the morning because they didn’t have access to even the most fundamental of health care. I don’t understand why the people who have stuff are enraged, and the people who have nothing are warm and hopeful. This is Dana Gould saying, ‘What the fuck?'”

Here is Remote Area Medical‘s website, by the way.  Another charity doing this work is Direct Relief International’s safety-net program.
