WE,,,here in the USA...let thousands die every week because they dont have the coverage?!

when I was going thru the worst courses of chemo on the coverage paid for the nupigen and epigen shots that saved my bone marrow from the horrendous chemicals used to fight the cancer itself....many with me did not have this

they died from leukemia...the chemo ate them many cases like this..going on right now

we are the only "western" country that does not have universal healthcare...even Cuba has many children walk around with no coverage because their parents havent the money for it?


I remember my oncologist back then....playing around with insurance companies....trying all he could to get some nupigen/epigen into dying people...he did all the little tricks he could think up

it sickens we let people suffer and die because they cant get the coverage they need,,,"pre-existing" crap...which keeps me from supplements I need.....medicare beats a blank...but there are huge holes in it...and many fall into these blackholes of death....hospitals throw us our asap...send us home bleeding with tubes hanging out of every orifice...because medicare wont cover a short stay in a hospital bed...????!!!

Its way past time for the right thing to be done....if the folks that want that great coverage...and can afford it...let them...more power to them...but for the bulk of us...many losing jobs right now..and coverage right along with that joblessness...????

they get a chronic illness...should we kick them to the curb to die like roadkill???

how many life savings are wiped out in no time at all?

I had great coverage at the right time....still...once you stop earning....your savings evaporate like vodka spilled on a hot rock

mortgages dont children's needs...all this stays the same...and we end up dead broke....if we live???

Its time for something to be done....what?....I dont have the answers...just this rant...and if I spoke the words I use...this post would be washed away in a NY minute

lest do the right thing???????????????

where will the money come from?....FIND A WAY!!!!
