Quoting Jorja Blue:" Must be nice to have this free wonderful medicaid! I would like to know how I can get my child on if ... [snip!] ... state! This country is a mess and I am ashamed to live in place that doesn't take care of it's people and lets them suffer.."
Wow.... really? "I have learned to do without- some of you should learn how that feels" I certainly know how that feels. I do without a LOT.
Its sickening that this country doesnt take care of those for a basic need as health. So many other countries cover health and dont have debt like us. You are contradicting yourself... you say you are ashamed of living in a place that doesnt take care of its people and lets them suffer... yet you are against people getting medicaid. Makes NO sense.
I was told I might have brain cancer and couldn't afford the tests... thats why I got on medicaid. Imagine being told that and wonder how the smurf you are going to pay for medical tests. I was told today I may have intestinal cancer... again, thank God for medicaid. My surgeries I've had to again, look for ANOTHER form of cancer.... thank God I had medicaid. I have a shot that is 2000 bucks alone each month that I need. Plus my meds and docs visits... If I worked 80 hours a week it STILL wouldnt cover my medical needs.
In order for a country to prosper the citizens need to be healthy. If they arent healthy... then people dont learn. When people dont learn we become a society full of idiots that can't challenge themselves and their family in life. Proper healthcare is at the base of our world, or at least it should be. Healthy people means a healthy world which will allow for people to rise above and NOT be on community assistance.
