    You know, before we all started having health care, in the olden days our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor

    There's no way to parse this into an accurate, let alone correct, sentence.

    For starters, "we all" haven't yet started having health care.

    Or perhaps she means "before health care was invented". No, that doesn't work; people wouldn't have been giving chickens to their doctors without getting anything back. (Republicans hadn't been invented yet, either.)

    Most likely she meant before health insurance (not health care.) But, umm, thanks in no small part to our modern insurance system, doctors no longer have the time for things like haggling with each individual patient. Perhaps Sue Lowden would sponsor a bill to force doctors to accept chickens from insurance companies in lieu of cash?

    Even though our dream is not yet completed... we are not quitters... and we are not through. Ty'Sheoma Bethea
