Please contact your Senators!!! We have got to get this health care bill stopped!!!

Now more important than EVER every person with a pre existing condition or if you know or love someone with a pre existing condition, please contact your Senators! Repealing the ACA in some ways could be ok but this bill allows states to opt out of pre existing coverage. They can charge us such high premiums once again that is it out of financial reach for millions of Americans. This is just not ok! States can also choose to not cover maternity and mental health to name a few!  I find it funny that the House voted to exclude themselves from this new healthcare law, how is that fair or legal?  Its complete crap! Lets get this terrible bill stopped in the Senate!! People we need to act, dont stand by and not speak your voice, PLEASE!!!

Imagine you have something like Cancer, Diabetes, a mental health issue or some other life long chronic disease and the premium for health insurance is completely unaffordable so you have to go without!

How does a Cancer patient survive, how does a Type 1 Diabetic survive? They dont, plain and simple. No one can afford Cancer treatment or insulin without health insurance coverage.

My insulin is $1000/mo before insurance, test strips $600/mo, insulin pump supplies around $500, my Dexcom continuous glucose monitor sensors that keeps me safe are $90 each without insurance. One sensor is FDA approved to wear for ONE WEEK.

We have to get this bill stopped, I cannot believe in America we will revert back to allowing insurance companies to over charge the sick, the people who need health care the most!! Thousands of people  are going to die if this is allowed to pass!
