Ed Schultz lays out the cost of delay if the Congress goes on vacation in August before they get health care reform passed.

143,000+ will lose their health care.

53,000+ will file for bankruptcy because of medical bills.

1,265 will die because of lack of coverage.

Ed also takes Max Baucus to the woodshed for the amount of money he takes from the health care industry and wanting to tax employees' health care benefits.
