My son has asthma, I would not be able to afford his medications and doctor appointments if we did not have Medical Assistance or CHIP. I have major depression wish has been mostly kept in check due to medications that I cannot afford. If I did not have any treatment for my illness I would not be able to be a living citizen, much less a parent. I have been unemployed for over 2 years now and have spent most of that time going back to college to get a degree in Accounting. I now have a part-time bookkeeping job which does not afford me any medical coverage for my son or myself. Without services like CHIP or Medicaid, I don't know how I would keep us both healthy and able to be growing, productive citizens. The cuts our governor is trying to get through are an abomination. This is truly a war on the poor and sick while the rich help themselves get richer with new and appalling audacity.
