Everyone has right to health care

I thank God that there were enough people in the House of Representatives to pass H.R.3962.

I can’t believe in this day and age, and in this area of the country, the people we elected do not see the dire need for health care reform. I know bottom lines have to be considered, but at whose expense?

If we don’t do something about health care reform in this country now, we will be no better than third world countries we see on TV with children and people dying in the streets.

I am still paying medical bills because I did not have health care at one time in my life. This is not a time for choosing sides. It is a time to do what is right. We are Americans. Everyone in this country has a right to affordable health care.
