Martha Winsten of Gansevoort was attending the rally on behalf of her 22-year-old son.

      "My son has had a swollen kidney since December; he has no health insurance, and he wants to go to another country to get help," she said.

      "I'm very upset at the thought that my son thinks he has to leave the country in order to get care; we're one of the last developed nations to not provide care for our people."

i know plenty of people who (even though employed) don't have health insurance. why? not because it's not provided by the employer, but because it's a rip off and has minimal coverage. some people think they'd be better off paying for occasional medical expenses themselves , not realizing that life could be very unpredictable. there's also a wonderful term in the Health Insurance world and it's "preexisting condition". basically, if you had a condition before you became insured you have to pay all the related expenses yourself anyway. even though you have insurance. isn't it fun!!! health insurance companies are out of control!!!! we need to take a stand!
