I just got a phone call from my husband. This new health care bill is coming up for a vote on Friday. There's a rally Thursday night. I have no idea how, but he wants to get there. I truly believe that this health care plan will FUCK up life as we know it. It scares me. When we took Anya to a pediatric neurologist, it took 1 day to get an apopintment. Less than. Our pediatrician made the apointment for us in the afternoon, and we walked into the office at 9:00 the night morning. I can't imagine waiting forever without action just becasue our health care system has been "improved". I believe that I shouldn't be penalized because others are less fortunate than me. I made me own way. I am responsible for where I am today. And the governemnt is trying to bankrupt private health insurance companies so that I no longer have a choice. Fuck that.
So if anyone reading this is near Washington DC and would be willing to help, I'd love to have a place to crash Wednesday night. Because whether it's easy or whether it's convenient, I am trying to take responsibility for my rights. I will be at that rally with Rob. Whether it does any good or not, I am not going to sit here and wait for someone else to take care of me. I don't know how we're going to do it, with or without the kids, hotel or crashing on a friend's couch, driving or flying, but if we don't stand up and make ourselves heard, who will?
