the recent caller said that he may never get sick. i had insurance, auto and medical. a drunk driver almost killed me. within a week i was canceled (auto and medical) i could never purchase insuruance,i'm considered uninsurable. or i can get crappy insur at the cost more than my monthly mortage, w/ a $1500 deductable everytime i see a doctor, it pays for no rx or preexsisting. i was finanically secure, but after 10plus years of having to pay for my own medical care and meds, $500.00 mo. i'v went thur my savings,i have spent everything. i dont even own a phone,i have never had a mamagram and im 50ish. i need surguries that they told me that will cost close to 350 thousand dollars, not counting expenses, and therepy ect. i have been thinking of things people are no morally suppose to consider.

one of the biggest problems is that so many young people would rather pay 300.00 BMW payment a month then a health care payment, because they believe they will never need it.Believe me it may not happen, but it does, the day i heard Obama Care passed, i had tears in my eyes. i know we have a lot to sort through. but for me it was a beautiful day with new found hope.
