I'm lucky enough to be covered by Medicare...

But I am so glad that the Obama Administration worked to get the life-time caps taken out...

In a country that supposedly sanctifies life, how can they commit people to death just because they don't have insurance.

1. I have Blue Cross....

But it hardly covers anything because it's a CHIP plan. Makes me feel like a second-class citizen--or just another sucker who simply can't afford to get sick!

3. I delayed going to the doctor about my deepening health situation

because I thought I would get kicked off Mrs WCGreens Health Care coverage.

2. I am lucky enough to have socialized medicine as a Military Spouse and I am glad everyone

will have healthcare. I grew up without decent healthcare and my mother worked for the state. getting sick was not an option we literally just didn't do. Me, my mom, my brothers we just never got sick.

In 2005 my oldest son got really sick with Kawaski's disease. If we didn't have good insurance I think my son would have died
No parent should ever have to lose a child because the insurance sucks

6. We are so far behind on this issue

 

that it's actually embarrassing to talk about.

Try explaining to some one from another industrialized nation how our health care system works.
