    My life is not worth less than the life of someone who can afford health insurance.  IT'S NOT.

    My mother had cancer when I was younger, and the only reason she is alive is because the experimental surgeries that ruined my families credit forever. The fact that she is in debt for reasons that she couldn't control is wrong.

    Has to Be a Better Way

    So many people don't have any health-care and there are those like me who pay so much each month and still can't afford the co-pays to utilize the plan. Most of my Dr's are considered specialists which means $50 to walk in the door. Then when they tell me I need follow ups or...

    I Don't Think It's to Much to Ask

    I don't think it's to much to ask for the citizens of the world's wealthiest country to be guaranteed health care. And its quite clear that our current system has MAJOR flaws. The US spends more on health care than any other nation, and our health care is currently ranked...
