We do not waste taxpayer dollars. We do our best to provide up-to-date care using old equipment.

I believe that ...


Health Coverage

I am a college-educated individual with no health coverage due to a reduction in hours. The laws must change.

Preventive Care

As an RN, I know that for every dollar you spend in preventive care, you save seven! Now, isn't that a smart think to do? All we need is a TB epidemic-like the bad old days-to make us realize the stupidity and cruelty of not passing single payer health ...

No health insurance coverage, I risk lives...

I have no health coverage. I teach babies, children, the elderly, and the pregnant. If I am sick, I go to work, if I can walk. If I don't work, I don't get paid. If I don't get paid, I sink even further into debt. I have two small children, and work all ...

Husband of 36 with Cancer
