I propose a US health care meme which might help put faces on how screwed up the current system is.

If you are a US citizen and could never under any circumstances afford private health insurance, copy this meme to your LJ. Even if you have health care through work now, write as if your one-layoff-away-from-losing-it has happened and you're facing the job of getting insurance on your own.

If you have friends or family members who are in the same boat and are not on LJ, feel free to mention them too. I suggest thumbnail descriptions which include no names or identifying information, in the interests of privacy.


The real face of health care should be Ted Kennedy.  It just seems wrong to me that he could not live to see it pass.  For a man with such a tumultuous   personal life, he was an amazing senator and it would have been a tribute to have this done while he lived.  It can still be a tribute to him.

RIP Teddy.

Hear, hear. I agree completely. It's a real loss for this country, but he contributed so, so much in his time with us. He's earned his rest.
