Website for Deaths of Uninsured Americans
Rep. Grayson Unveils Website for Deaths of Uninsured Democratic Congressmember Alan Grayson of Florida has established a new website honoring those who’ve lost their lives because they were uninsured. Grayson says he founded NamesOfTheDead.com after a recent Harvard University study found 44,000 people die every year because they lack health insurance. Grayson announced the website Wednesday on the House floor. “They themselves can no longer speak. But their families, the ones who love them, they can speak.” Rep. Grayson invited all those people who’ve suffered the terrible tragedy of losing a loved one—to go to this website and name them.
