As a postscript to these posts, there was a piece on the nightly national news about the growing population that was not on insurance. One of the examples they showed was a husband and wife, both diabetic where he was fired from his job (so they both lost their health insurance) because he was diabetic. I work for a huge corp so I haven't felt this discrimination, but nevertheless it burns me up
So, I would suggest that each and everyone of you that feels strongly about this send a letter to your State senator and even your congressman. Make it a PAPER letter, they command much more attention than emails. If enough people write, at least some aide will be assigned to see if its legislation that should be written.
Comeon, it takes 20 mins out of your day to find your Senator's address, write a letter and stick a stamp on it.
(Follow-up.......I just sent letters to my two state senators. Lets see what responses I get. I'll post what they say when the responses come in.)
