Obamacare: Your story
I am the uninsured, the poor
I have high blood pressure, and now I also have to deal with Asthma, and while I 'm fighting to continue the 'charity care' the hospital in my area has, I also have a $700 bill for a ER trip for a Asthma episode .
What happens right now, if I need surgery, or some longer hospital stay for some infection, accident, etc., and I have no insurance ? I'm not going to be seen unless some invisible benefactor comes to rescue me.
Are the republicans , who arrogantly and immorally block health care, going to pay for my hospitalization I wonder ?
If they aren't willing to do that, for me, and millions LIKE ME, then why the games ?
My health, and those around me, are not some violent video game with which to throw us around it and inflict pain and suffering and bleed damage; we are real , GOD"s children who don't deserve to be treated like yesterdays garbage, and a dutiful right to be treated like human beings.
I am sick of all this arguing, while people who no health care right now, suffer.
I shouldn't have to be writing this, being part of a great country, that contains, supposedly, people of faith, good will and supposed 'intelligence', sufficient that they should know better , and like children, put away their toys and stop stomping about as if them not getting their way amongst the public who predominately want health care ( why wouldn't they ?), means no one else gets any either.
Aren't we here on Earth, to be living and breathing compassion and want to help our fellow citizens, who are all part of a spectacular universe set in motion by forces no one comprehends atm ? Who therefore has the right to try to usurp my and countless individiuals GOD given right to health and peace of mind, all to score political points with their folks back home ?
We abolished slavery in many forms, because as a society we collectively and individually said , that's immoral and unjust, yet in todays world it's as if those facts never occurred, and some pundits and politicians, all whom have far too much money and influence for their own good, scream like children having a fit that those among us who are the poor and needy, should be treated according to the rules of Ayn Rand.
Well I'm just so sorry, that my poorness is such an inconvenience for you, and I'm also so very sorry that Jesus Christ's ( and others for sure) teachings mean nothing to you , to the extend that you are willing to IGNORE them as if Jesus just never existed.
I'm calling all of you out , in Jesus name and in the name of compassion and justice, that you throw away your mean spirited jargon, your toys, your influence and wealth, and treat all of us as if you know , and understand what Jesus was trying to tell us all; That we treat our neighbors as ourselves ( including animals who suffer everyday at the hand of carnivores ), which includes raising up the poor to a station in life where they are as equal to you , who in your warped sense of societal privilege, have so much.
