    When my daughter's school bus was tboned she was loaded onto an ambulance and taken to the local hospital without my permission. And thanks to how FL car insurance works I was on the hook for ALL those bills and was required to go after the other drivers (Who denied all wrong doing despite the intersection having cameras) insurance company for reimbursement. That took almost 6 months to get them to pay up. What about my medical insurance? doesn't cover ambulance rides, so that's a grand right there for a 2 mile trip. And since everyone with a payroll is moving over to a high deductible plan that's still 4 grand I was expected to front (plus 10% of everything over).

    How many people can weather a 5 grand bill that they had no ability to avoid? Then throw on the lingering effects like jacked up insurance rates for the next several years.

    My parents went bankrupt due to my dad's cancer and lost their house. I think the only reason my mom is still alive is because she was diagnosed before the Republicans ruined Obamacare.

    The phrase 'medical debt' is obscene, whoever invented it should be the one in prison.
    So may your dreams be monumental when your spirit guides the way
    Within in the flicker of a candle, I will heal your soul's decay
    We share a fate, trapped on a page, by the author of our world's demise

    This makes for incredible reading.

And now we have to use it.

    And that's Why I'm Voting Leave.
