It looks as if the answer is not in health care. It may be the path that this person has taken based on the decisions that were made in the past. I doubt if the health care debate would have helped this person any way, due to all the red tape involved with the government in general. I do not support the health care package proposed today, I dont think the working class should pay for everyones health care. If the writer of this artical is looking for another hand out they wont find it here.
