You know, I’m not really sure why this should even be a debate, why would anyone be opposed to healthcare for all?
Growing up in England, if you got sick you went to the hospital, they took care of you and that was that. No extortionate bill, no threatening letters from collection companies, nothing but the satisfaction of knowing your government was taking care of you health-wise.
I guess you never really think about healthcare until it’s too late, i.e. you get majorly sick. It’s too late for me, my family has been entirely wiped out financially by my health problems. I’ve worked all my life, managing to support a family and having some moderate savings, and now that’s all gone. I’m not whining, I’m just letting you know it can happen to you too, and of course chances are that it will, we don’t stay young and invincible forever.
I hope you are following Obama’s Healthcare reform and voicing your opinion. We are one of the richest nations on earth, yet our citizens die or go broke because of illness, it’s shameful really.
I hope you make your voices heard and contact your local congressman or woman and let them know that the time is now, affordable healthcare for all! I can’t believe we even have to do this.
Also I want to say a huge thanks to all of you that have donated to my medical bills, without you I would literally have no idea on how we’d be eating these days. And don’t forget to get your tickets for the benefit on the 26th, they are selling fast.
Please do your part, healthcare for all!!!!
