I know you will never see this unless this post goes viral. Where everyone who reads it. Will share. I am the wife of a Vietnam Veteran. I am thankful as of August of 2016 my husband now gets the best health care of his life at the Va hospital in Columbia and Jeff city. He was among the people who were subjected to toxic drinking water at Camp Lejeune.He does not get a Va pension. So we live off of Social Security. And as you know that puts us in the poverty level of the population.
With us being in the state of Missouri. As you know. This state did not let poor people into The Affordable care act. That was created by congress. For which President Obama has received full blame. He asked congress to provide help to those who could not afford health care. He did not ask for everyone to be lumped into a health care night mare. Where price was skyrocketed. He asked to help people like me to be able to get help.
I have been really sick since May 22. I can not see a dr. They have limits as to how many cash patents they will let in. They double the price for cash patients. I called there are no clinics in my area. And St. Marys said. I could go to the Er and ask for an app for payment assistance. So in fear of how to pay. I have lived day after day in pain. I am getting better now. For a while I was only able to eat crackers, bananas and Activia yogurt. I do not like yogurt. So I make myself eat it. Because it will stay down. And I hope it is helping me. Now I am able to eat some of the veggies I grow in my garden But since I am so sick they have been neglected. And I have to buy some of them taking away more money that could pay the electric bill or for my husbands meds.
I do not mean for this to be a boohoo poor me post. I want this to make a difference. I do not want you to take the blame for signing what congress comes up with, Like President Obama did. Remembr you are the your fired person.The answer is to stop Obama care and return insurance back the way it was for people who can pay.
Restricting insurance company's from saying no to those who have pre existing conditions, who can pay. Making Medicare open to those who can not pay. Like me. They also have a spin down of almost $300-400 a month for income of $1200 a month. That leaves a married couple $900 a month to live on. So, tell me how do they do that.
Another ideal. why can I not be seen by the VA. I am the wife of a VA Veteran?
Why not look at Canada or AU or even Hungary has free medical care. See what they do.
You may ask why I do not get Medicare. I am not old enough for SS and every year the amount of my SS dwindles to nothing. I am 57 years old. And may not make it to the age of 65 or 67. So that I can pay $120 a month for Medicare.
I am not going to go on. Please make Congress look at what they are doing. Help the people who need help. And leave the rest of the nation to pat their own way.
