    What a relief that must have been!  It's inhumane to force someone experiencing a temporary health crisis to undergo extreme financial hardship and the loss of their job and or assets.  

    We put cancer patients through so much personal and economic hell in this country,  then expect them to be cheerful and have "hope".  

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      mind. No one should have to go thru what these goddamn insurance companies impose on people when they are paddling as hard as they can to keep from going over the waterfall.

      We must be allowed to take care of each other. And we must stop insurance gangsters from adding financial crisis to health a health crisis.

      Relief? We were cheering in Ohio, down in Florida & Georgia, and out in Oregon. You probably heard us.
