    how about names, or pictures (especially pictures of the dead/dying with family). Numbers really don't rock many people's boats, but put a name or a face to those numbers and it will really impact.

    •  Charlene Dill in FLA: a Medicaid denial casualty (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      Thanks go to to healthcare felon Rick Scott (currently FLA governator) and the FLA legislature.

      Charlene Dill, a 32-year-old mother of three, collapsed and died on a stranger’s floor at the end of March. She was at an appointment to try to sell a vacuum cleaner, one of the three part-time jobs that she worked to try to make ends meet for her family. Her death was a result of a documented heart condition — and it could have been prevented.
      Dill was uninsured, and she went years without the care she needed to address her chronic conditions because she couldn’t afford it.
      Under the health reform law, which seeks to expand coverage to millions of low-income Americans, Dill wasn’t supposed to lack insurance. She was supposed to have access to a public health plan through the law’s expansion of the Medicaid program. But Dill, a Florida resident, is one of the millions of Americans living in a state that has refused to accept Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion after the Supreme Court ruled this provision to be optional.

      America's LAST HOPE: vote the GOP OUT in 2014 elections. MAKE them LOSE the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate. Democrats move America forward - Republicans take us backward and are KILLING OUR NATION!
