I need health care reform

March 06, 2010

I think about all the years I worked and paid for health care and did not use it because I was young and healthy. Now I am older in need of care, and I can't afford it and can't get it because of pre-existing conditions.

What happened to all that money people put into the system and didn't use because they were healthy and strong? I need help in order to stay alive. I need health insurance that works for me to provide me with the best possible care. I like so many others want to live and work without the fear of getting sick with no health coverage.

Please pass the health care bill so it will benefit the citizens and not just the insurance companies. I want my health to profit without me getting into debt or having to accept inferior health care.
