Final Thoughts for Sunday Night....Keep Fighting for the Public Option, Lives are at Stake....
"True leadership calls for the setting-forth of the objectives AND the rallying of public opinion in SUPPORT of these objectives." FDR
All last week there is plenty posted to pass on to people to educate them on the facts about Our Healthcare Crisis...please do Twitter it, and FB it and pass it on....It is a shame that the Media has spent so much time on the Teabaggers and Death Panels and other absurd Stupid Distractions. They should have been reporting the Facts, which are dire and staggering. ( In posts below there are links to all the articles that researched this data- or email me and I will give you more links).
50 Million and Counting without Healthcare, 14,000 losing care per day, that is 400,000 more per month.
22,000 people are dying per year with NO Healthcare
179,000 have died without Healthcare since 2001...
500,000 People are currently fighting Cancer with NO Health Insurance after being denied Care and Treatment.
In California alone, it is estimated that more than 22% of Claims and Care are denied, and by other estimates it is closer to 40%.
62% of all bankruptcies are due to Medical Debt, People are losing homes daily due to Medical Bankruptcy, People fight Diseases should not losing their Savings and Homes due to Insurance Greed.
When you stand at the Store or at a playground look around WHO would You refuse Care ? Anyone ? ...See for me- this is a moral issue, as a Nurse I took an Oath to Do No Harm and to never refuse Anyone Care...Ever.
The Media keeps saying " The Left needs to learn to Compromise", that is not accurate, No One should be compromising on Wanting People to have Healthcare, Lives are at stake.
Do go to the Whitehouse Website and write to the President, and do call the Whitehouse 202-456-1111, and 202-456-1414...
