Self-employed families need healthcare reform

This morning my husband checked himself into the ER with cardiac symptoms. He had held off visiting a doctor with his radiating chest discomfort, because we don't have insurance. But this morning when he woke up feeling all wrong, he had no choice.

The fact that we have a "preexisting condition" safety net thanks to health care reform has done MUCH to ease my mind this morning. The reason we have no insurance is that I am self-employed, supporting our family, and still building business. I hate to think of all my hard work having to pay insane health care costs instead of saving for my children's future. So this health care reform is BADLY needed for my family and others like ours.
