Thank Gog for this! My child was diagnosed with cancer just 2 months ago and would be on her death bed right now if I lost coverage. My employer dropped us for political reasons and I went online and found an even better plan for less! Thank you congress for this life saving help!

You just made a lot of republicans mad. They've been brain washed into believing that only very rich people should have healthcare.
This is the kind of story that Fox News would never air.

I hope you are wrong, I would like to believe everyone deserves affordable health coverage not just the rich. I have voted republican my whole life and can't believe anyone would deny a child healthcare for political reasons.

I've never been rich and I've always been able to afford health insurance. I've never heard of anyone being dropped off the insurance "because of political reasons" as you put it. Sounds to me like there's more to the story than you're telling us.

Whatever, Hope your child makes a full and rapid recovery.

You are correct oldtimer I misspoke when I said our coverage was dropped for political reasons. What I meant to say is our employer stopped paying there share of health insurance because of political reasons. We were told if we supported this law then we should pay the full cost of it.
Long story short,most of us got online and not only signed up for the equivalent coverage for the same cost but many increased their coverage for pennies more!
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, Jacob is in remission and prognosis looks good for now. He does have a considerable amount of schoolwork to catch up on though.

My comment had nothing to do with your grammar or spelling.

In your first post, your child was a girl. Then she became a boy.

isn't that pretty common for folks with their ideas/agenda - fire gets too hot, so they back off and let someone else put it out - like a slow burning coal, give them a little fodder and they will return, torches blazing - remember when it was just beginning to get hot for obama, 61 said she did not post in the cold months as her computer was in a "back room" or something like that - total bs - i rarely waste time going back to research - but she has and does post, during winter months, quite often - just another good christian lady telling a big lie to keep from admitting that obama and his administration are full of shit -as far as gene, he has changed his name and is now a staunch republican - parasites live off the best they can find - welcome to the conservative side, whatever your name is now, gene!!

One of the examples of government run health care is the veterans health administration. And CNN has been doing an investigation of the veteran’s administration. Here is part of what they found. Columbia South Carolina: Military veterans are dying needlessly because of long waits and delayed care at US veteran’s hospitals a CNN investigation has found.

Who’s in charge of the Veteran’s Administration? That would be Obama right?

What’s worse is the US department of Veterans Affairs is aware of the problem and has done almost nothing to effectively prevent veterans from dying from delays in care according to documents obtained by CNN and interviews with numerous experts. And the problem has been especially dire at the Williams Jennings Bryan Dorn Veterans Medical Center in Columbia SC. There veterans waiting months for simple gastrointestinal procedures, such as a colonoscopy or an endoscopy, have been dying because their cancers aren’t caught in time. The VA has confirmed six deaths at Dorn tied to delays, but sources close to the investigation say the number of vets dead or dying of cancer because they had to wait too long for diagnosis or treatment at this facility could be more than twenty.“It’s very sad because people die” said a private doctor specializing colonoscopies in Columbia. This doctor and other physicians across South Carolina’s capital city are being affected by delays at Dorn as Vets seek treatment or diagnoses outside the VA hospital.

What do you think of that?

The government documents CNN obtained illustrate just how bad delays at Dorn got. In May 2011, a patient was brought into the emergency room needing urgent care after suffering multiple delays and the documents state quote:“That was the facilities first realization that patients were falling through the cracks”. Another vet had to wait nine months for a colonoscopy. Quote:“A significant delay” according to VA records “would have impacted the stage at which he was diagnosed”. And the records indicate that by the time this vet had surgery his cancer was at stage three. Still another patient recommended for possible disease of the esophagus had to wait four months for an appointment and eleven months for an endoscopy, at which time he learned he had later stage esophageal cancer. The internal VA report says that “without the delay his cancer would have been diagnosed much earlier. And earlier screening would have provided earlier detection with better survival.” In July 2011, a hospital physician sent a warning to administrators that the backlog for Dorn patients gastrointestinal appointments had reached 2500 and patients were waiting eight months until Feb 2012 for appointments.

Now these gastrointestinal problems are severe. The could be cancerous…they could have Chrohn’s disease…you could have ulcerative colitis…you could have all kinds of problems. These are horrible diseases. Horrible illnesses… they are extremely painful…and they need to be treated. Shouldn’t this administration have been required to show us how they can better run the Veterans Administration before they decided on destroying the entire healthcare system in this country? Because rather than fixing the Veterans Administration, what’s happened is the entire healthcare system is becoming the Veterans Administration. And there is a lot of vets out there who have been treated well, and good on them, but what we are talking about is the number of incidents…which are way too high. And what we are talking about is the future of the VA healthcare system which is very poor.

This is government run healthcare. And this government run healthcare is going to run throughout society. This is a huge problem.

Ah but guest. The answer is not just getting rid of the Dems in Congress and getting a Rep. president. We need conservatives who have values in the constitution. We have seen from the likes of Sen. McConnell...who by the way has already surrendered on the debt issue that is coming. What kind of leadership is that? We need conservatives elected to these offices. Believe it or not....this is what the Tea Party movement was based upon. It was based upon trying to establish a government back to what our Framer's envisioned. A constitutional government. Which, by the way, means liberty. Liberty, which is mentioned in the works of John Locke, that liberty is the nature of man.
