Sorry for the poliitical comment, but I am angry and very upset for each of you!!! I read your stories and it makes me feel so very sad to think that one of the most wealthy contries in the world, full of good people (who frequently vote against their own best interest), does not include Health Care as one of it's basic human rights. It seems unethical to me the way that the American Medical and especially Pharm. Associations continually snow the American people by perpetuating the myth that National Health Care is bad. I am praying that something is done very soon to change our current health care system where only the rich can afford to get needed first rate medicines or top notch medical care. We middle class deserve better! I agree, our whole health care system sucks in the US!
Please note the AMA supported the Affordable healthcare bill when it had teeth ie before it got watered down - no public option - by Pharma and the Congress people on their payroll, mostly Rebubs. The real issue is he American people who are to lazy to study basic issues and who think Fox News is a a real news network instead of the disease that it is. Our society is infected... and doomed. If people think "Liberal" is bad, I assume they have never read the Bible 'cuz Jesus was the first, the prototype. You can not possibly be Christian and vote for conservative or the Tea Party, yet people have been brainwashed. If half the country rejects science and math (did you see Fox on election night trying to deny reality?) we are screwed
