Please exclude all the people that are featured in the paper needing money for an illness from getting decent insurance. Every week or two there is a benefit for someone suffering a severe illness and the enormous bills that go along with it. The "freedom" bill mentioned above is a joke. The rich get great insurance and insurance comnpanies bring in the gold from all of us.. Lose your job and insurance? Good luck to you. And this party has the "Christian" vote. I guess the "do unto the least" is old hat. It is morally reprehensible that people go bankrupt from a for-profit system. We are 37th in terms of health care in the world but a forty million dollar radio huckster and this party screw the suckers that vote for them. Real "patriots".
