Roland Martin is not one to pull punches, and he continued to keep it real today on the premiere episode of “NewsOne Now.” Martin recalled a time when he was in need of immediate medical attention, and paid the consequences of being uninsured, with a hefty bill:

“I was a freelance producer, working the Democratic National Convention… My appendix ruptured… Five days in a hospital in L.A., health care bills approaching $100,000… I filed bankruptcy to stave it off… I was forced into it because of those health care bills… That’s the real story for many Americans…”
