How can we get people to understand that even though they have a Million dollars today, and

They lose pre-existing conditions, They could be in the poor house in ONE YEAR! I just don't get their thinking!! (maybe because they ARE NOT THINKING) How can we get through to them?

1. find a few real life examples and publicize the hell out of them

human stories have more emotional traction than statistics

4. How right you are! Most people don't understand that. If or anyone you're close to never had a

serious medical problem, or extensive surgeries, you're just not aware of how much those things cost. I'm personally amazed when I get a bill for an uncomplicated surgery and see what they charged. I had a leg fracture repaired It only took 30 mins. a I went home the same day. The bill for just the surgery was $75,000! On top of that they charged for use of the OR & recovery rooms. If I hadn't experienced that myself, I'd have never guessed it would have cost that much/

5. Definitely understand the concern, but don't believe it is likely we'll go back

to denying coverage for pre-existing conditions. There are a lot of GOPers afraid of the same thing.
