  •  I know a young lady (4+ / 0-)

    who had a motorcycle accident. She was not at fault. It could have been a lot worse, but she lost some teeth and got her jaw broken among other things.

    The $100k she collected from the other driver's insurance company didn't cover her medical and dental bills.

      My wife and I lost basically everything when she had to go in to the ER.

      11 days on the first stay and eventually about 5 surgeries...

      Colon problem that we didn't know about and we didn't know about it because we were uninsured at the time.

      This stuff can be really brutal.

      The ACA is all about getting started toward great health care. No turning back. The way forward is through. Every Democrat is married to this law and we all need to work together to make it awesome.
