I found this picture on a Facebook page called Politics Nerd. It makes me feel so sad. I don’t usually like to write anything about politics because it makes people act so divisive. (just click on the picture below and read some of the 1000+ comments on FB to see what I mean) But it sums up why we need to find some way for Americans to have affordable health insurance that is not tied to what type of job they have or which company they work for. And this hits close to home for me, though I don’t have cancer like this person, because I’m paying off some pretty large medical bills myself right now. I have been unable to buy insurance due to the exorbitant cost and to pre-existing conditions, nor do I work for a large corporation where I would receive insurance as a benefit. And I have also been told by a hospital that I could be stabilized and sent home, but not treated unless I paid up front. So I understand completely what he is saying.
