6. Thanks for sharing.
I too am "a statistic". I have no health insurance. One serious injury or sickness would probably cost me my home and put me and my family on welfare. Luckily I am not suffering any real health problems yet.

Obama's health care proposition does not go far enough. Going halfway will not fix the problem. Nothing short of a single payer health care insurance system, such as what they have in Canada will be any help at all. I realize the insurance and drug companies a lobbying hard, because they are growing rich and fat with the system we have now. We just need to tell them to sit down and shut up!

Basic health care is a basic right. Nobody should have to suffer and die needlessly because they cannot afford basic health care. Together, we can afford it.
