I could sit here and write a long post about all the reasons we need real reform (I’m starting to hate that word, but I don’t have a better one) — but our individual stories are the things that may ultimately get through to all those at the Health Care Summit.
If we stop talking about costs, profits, regulation and party politics and focus on the stories of people who are sinking as a result of the insurance mess we have now, maybe we could find a way to take care of each other. Lately, I’ve been avoiding Keith Olbermann’s special comments, but this one struck a nerve and I hope it somehow resonates with a few people in that room at Blair House as they’re putting on a nice show for the American people.
Finding a way to take care of our families and friends when they are sick so we don’t all go into bankruptcy. As I say sometimes — yeah, I’m all crazy like that.
