JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO, GUEST HOST: If you want to see what government-run health care looks like go to an Indian Reservation. There is a saying on the reservation: "Don't get sick after June." Well, we went to the Lower Brule and Rosebud reservations in South Dakota to find out why. KATHY ZIEGLER, LOWER BRULE TRIBE MEMBER: I had an incident happen in Rosebud, South Dakota, with the IHS with my son. When he was 15 years old, a bull kicked him in the jaw, broke his jaw. Dr. Dillon (ph), he ordered intubation on him.
