I Want Universal Health Care

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 399 People

    I'm a veteran, so I've got my healthcare

    covered. I just feel sorry for everyone else who doesn't and all the hoops they have to jump through for Obamacare. I guess it's better than nothing... but they have much better systems in place in other countries.

    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...

    How Life Changes

    I use to always have fantastic health care thru my employers. That all changed last year when I was laid-off. I started to pay COBRA, but then the company dissolved so no more COBRA. I now have no health insurance. It's very scary. I'm unable to even buy individual health...

    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...

    The Time For Universal Health Care Is Now

    Every American has equal value and every American deserves health care. Period. Health problems are scary, sure, but can you imagine only having to deal with that and not medical bills too? The fear of losing your house? The fear of bankrupting your family? The US is the only...

    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.
