I am a self employed worker in the state of Ohio that doesn’t have health care insurance. I have a family of 6 that worries about getting injured or sick because where would the money come from to take care of the problem? We only go to the doctor if we have to, definitely not for check-ups. Ohio and the rest of this country is sick in that we are suppose to be the wealthiest country in the world but can’t afford to give our citizens decent health care. We can finance other countries and help them with their problems but can not fix our own. We allow doctors, insurance companies, and our politicians full rein to control this problem and they are not out for anyone but themselves and big profit. We need to design a system where all citizens, regardless of income, will be taken care of and allowed to get the same treatment that our wealthy get.
