The program is clearly well intended. But it shows just how bad our healthcare system is for those who fall into the cracks -- and how the pursuit of even limited coverage can wipe out a family financially.

The Perrys had been covered by insurance offered by PEN American Center, an organization of writers and artists, until they received notice recently that their combined monthly premium would soon top $2,000.

It's a sad story. These people are not young, healthy people trying to skate by. They have always had insurance, but it got pulled out from under them when they developed IBS and things likely to cause insureance claims. So the insurance company did the logical thing: Get rid of them.

I think we're missing the big picture here. The real question is can we afford to take a few casualties for the greater good of maintaining the Bush millionaire tax cuts.

Many tea-baggers believe we can and should.
