8. An old friend of mine's sister found out that she has a serious
form of cancer, and the treatment she has was costing her $21,000 every time she had it. My friend and her entire family are Republicans and they have quite a bit of money - millions. My friend's sister doesn't have insurance because she had breast cancer 22 yrs ago and couldn't get insurance.
She did buy catostrophic insurance, but it doesn't cover the treatment she needs (that's another story). After watching "Farrah's Story", I sent my friend an email asking if they had looked into getting treatment in another country and she replied that her sister had found a woman who helped her get the treatments and the government would have for it. Like your relatives, these people thinks this is different - it's happening to THEM and they deserve help. I'm not saying they don't, I'm saying EVERYONE needs help at some point in their life. I think Republicans wear blinders and only see what they want to see.
