I JUST HAD TO SAY IT!
THIS GETS MY VOTE

I could write statistics on the millions
that have no health insurance
the plight of our emergency rooms
dealing with the indigent

But I have health insurance
It’s exorbitant
and I’m afraid to go to the doctor
because after monthly premiums
I can’t afford the deductible
But I’m insured

My daughter has health insurance too
She’s 25 and pays nearly $350 a month
but her plan will not pay for the medication
her Dr. has prescribed
She can’t afford to buy it
She doesn’t take her medicine

Quietly, I’ll say this
but I think you hear the scream
of utter frustration
reverberating through out this issue -
We need a universal health care plan now
because I know
we can do better
