So according to University of Michigan aquatic ecologist Donald Scavia the spill may create a larger dead zone, an area in the Gulf that is depleted of oxygen and Reseachers predict larger-than-average Gulf ‘dead zone’; Impact of oil spill unclear.

Do spending cuts cost lives?

Radical cuts to social welfare spending to reduce budget deficits could cause not just economic pain but cost lives, warn experts in a study published online in the British Medical Journal.

All I can say to that is…no shit! But one thing that gets me is the large amount of people that slip through the cracks. These are the ones that really need some sort of assistance. Those of us that are right at the borderline of qualifying for healthcare. (Cause 2014 is a long way away for some of us.) These are the people at most risk. The ones that do not have healthcare, but are making just over the cutoff to receive Medicaid…these are the ones who can’t afford health insurance, but need it desperately.

But this is another story…
