It sickens me that there are so many selfish people who would prefer to let those less fortunate than themselves suffer with injury and disease. I grew up in a family where it was believed that we should help our fellow man and lend a hand when needed.
I don’t see this as a political issue but more of a human issue. Many people go to church each week and pray for forgiveness and portray themselves as fair and caring people where one person helps another, sometimes without question.
It’s a shame that this has polarized the population. I don’t believe that all Republicans feel that universal or perhaps more affordable healthcare is evil and it also appears that there are some Democrats who apparently would prefer to watch a friend or loved one die rather than share some of their personal wealth to help their fellow man.
Why should a family go bankrupt if one of them becomes seriously ill? It simply makes no sense.
I am for a more equal country where each person whether wealthy or poor can receive help when needed. We spend too much money helping others in other lands, let’s keep some of it here and help each other.
It pisses me off that to have health care coverage that Cheryl and I get to spend over $12,000.00/year for health care insurance and each of us has a $2500.00 deductible before we benefit from it!
