    Breast cancer, health insurance and an apology to President Obama

    A message to 'Obamacare' haters [The Reply]

    I found out three weeks ago I have cancer. I'm 49 years old, have been married for almost 20 years and have two kids. My husband has his own small computer business, and I run a small nonprofit in the San Fernando Valley. I am also an artist. Money is tight, and we don't spend it frivolously. We're just ordinary, middle-class people, making an honest living, raising great kids and participating in our community, the kids' schools and church.

    We're good people, and we work hard. But we haven't been able to afford health insurance for more than two years. And now I have third-stage breast cancer and am facing months of expensive treatment.

    ---------------------------------------

    Is the Republican answer really to "let her die"? When did Americans helping Americans become dreaded "socialism"?

    I wish the right wing would explain it to me.

    Saw the story this evening. Very moving. It's a little for all the socialist sarcasm to start flowing in.

    Remember when the health care bill was being discussed, Obama's medical "experts" told American women that they didn't need all those expensive Mammograms. It was all over the radio networks that mammograms were unnecessary and then, whoops, Barry's experts suddenly stopped talking about it. There are hundreds of social programs that address breast cancer. Barry's convoluted health care mess is probably the last thing people should depend on for treatment.

    Planted? Apparently, after Obamacare, she quit the Democratic Party and signed up "independent". She has spoken out in LA against Obamacare.

    When did Americans helping Americans become a "bad" thing? When did Republicans become the party of "let him die"?

    She should have kept up her HC payments. She should have been smarter. HC is more important that just about anything else.

    Sorry bout her luck but why the hell should I be forced to assume payment for her bills??
