Hey There, Congress and Mr. President. It's your citizens. Lots of us are losing jobs and benefits. We cannot keep the benefits we've got when we lose our jobs. In fact it's really hard to keep paying all the bills without a job and an income. The new jobless numbers are alarming in so many ways.
You keep lying and saying you want to make sure people can keep the health insurance benefits they have if they like them. You call it choice. I call it lying.
Throughout my working life - more than 40 years now - I have never been in control of my own access to healthcare. First, if I have a job I can choose to have the kind of insurance my employer offers at the price negotiated by my employer. Second, those benefits may change when the employer's contract is up and new prices are set. Sometimes I've had to change plans and doctors right in the middle of treatment plans. I had no choice. Finally, if I change jobs or lose my job, I can sign up for COBRA benefits which may or may not be the same coverage with the same providers but which is always a lot more expensive. Often I cannot afford those benefits at all.
For 40 years, I have been at the mercy of someone else when it comes to the care I can get and the cost of that care and the continuation of that care. I am last in line to keep what I have - like it or not.
