It was December 2008, and like an estimated 46 million other Americans, I was without health insurance. On New Year’s Eve I suddenly developed heart palpitations, vertigo, tremors, pins and needles, burning spots all over my body, slurred speech, crying spells and severe drops in blood pressure upon standing. I rushed to the emergency room, thinking I was having a heart attack.

If you watched President Obama's eloquent address to the joint Congress last night, there is no doubt one moment that sticks in your mind, and unfortunately it probably has nothing to do with health care. Rather, it was most likely Rep. Joe Wilson's (R-NC) inappropriate outburst in the middle of the president's speech that made an impression.
