Caroline Richmond is 13 and she had a stroke - a stroke for christ's sake and she is currently on life support. Leukemia is the underlying cause of this stroke.
Caroline's parents are not on the dole. The are hard working self employed people that cannot afford health insurance.
So now what do they do? They have a bake sale, what else.
Why in this country does anyone have to hold a bake sale to pay for medical treatment for their child?
50 million people in America do not have health insurance. 700,000 families declare bankruptcy due to their healthcare costs.
Yes, people in America! Why?
Why doesn't every American citizen have healthcare? Why don't people that have insurance want people that don't have insurance not to be able to get insurance?
I guess I just don't understand politics. I guess I just don't get why we as a country would rather force people into bankruptcy, punish them for getting sick, punish people because their child get sicks, punish them because they can't afford insurance.
So not only might these people lose their homes, their jobs, their businesses but many of them will also lose their children.
Will never get it.
