This is just part of the story.
Actually, during the last six months of my first husband's life, he was unable to care for himself. That required that I provide the 24-hour care. I closed my business to do that.
Also, some other reasons I want health care reform is to provide options for better coverage for may daughters. One has a $5,000 deductible (from her employer) and one has no coverage (she can't afford it).
