Health care again.

Forced to file bankruptcy by medical bills even though she had insurance. She paid her premiums, kept insurance in place, did what she had to do to manage, continued working through ovarian cancer. I would like to make every hateful right-winger who can't think it could happen to them walk in her shoes.

This is exactly what I am afraid of. How dire that as we get older, knowing that if you live long enough you get sick, we can look forward to being beat up by our insurance.

It's what I am afraid of too. I dodged it this time, my insurance came through on the brain thang, but now I have to see two more specialists and each time I wonder if this is the time I'll get embroiled in some sort of Thing that Needs Fixing only to have the insurance flake out.
