Cancer Treatment

A friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer day before yesterday. They wanted to start aggressive treatment right away so she and her husband were called to the hospital business office this morning. Bottom line, they sat them down, showed them a very large 6 figure bill and asked how they intended to pay for the treatment after the insurance was exhausted. They have good insurance through the university but even with that the cost is beyond what any person other than a very rich person could pay. How do people do it? Will they refuse her treatment if they can't pay?

No person should feel their life is in danger because they can't pay for care. She called me in tears and said the meeting felt like they were being shaken down by a loan shark.

Then this morning I see the little toad who overcharged for drugs people needed, pleading the 5th and smirking the whole time, make me physically ill.

We need to refocus our attention on the Republicans.

I realize during primary season we focus more on our own candidates, but I really wonder if we will ever be able to come back together as a party to win the election in the fall.

My focus will continue to be the Republican party and the terrible damage they will do if they have complete power. My Grandfather who was pretty active in Illinois politics in the day, always said that Democrats and Republicans will spend the same amount of money so it isn't about spending, it is about what they spend the money on, wars vs. people, the rich vs. the middle class and the poor, corporations vs. people. It is also the difference in who they work for, the rich or the rest of us.

I am sure I will be slammed for this, but after spending months reading the nasty stuff we are throwing at each other during the primary I can actually see a Republican in the White House. I just want to focus my attention on the big picture keeping those assholes out of the White House, the State House and the legislature.
