Clearly our best argument for health care reform thus far…

From today’s Health Care Summit (read: Draw Lines in the Sand session):

I even had one constituent — you will not believe this, and I know you won’t, but it’s true — her sister died. This poor woman had no dentures — she wore her dead sister’s teeth, which of course were uncomfortable, did not fit. Did you ever believe that in America that that’s where we would be?
This is the last chance as far as I’m concerned, particularly on the export business. We have fallen behind, we’re no longer the biggest manufacturer in the world, we’ve lost our technological edge. We have an opportunity to do that, but a major part of the success of that is getting this health care passed.
Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY)
from the White House

That is probably the most awkward health care story I’ve heard so far.
