Tavis Smiley: Lining Up for Free Health Care

Between raving town hall lunatics and President Obama's recent flip-flops on the Public Option, the average American can't be blamed for being uninformed or just plain confused about health care.

So here's a breath of fresh air, and a reminder of why we started this business in the first place- people. We cannot ignore the 50 million uninsured people in this country, and the millions more insured but abused by the our current health care system.

The Tavis Smiley show takes a minute to meet some of these people face to face, by visiting a free health care clinic on a day when they treated over 7,000 Americans in need of health care.

Take a look.
