We are at a point in the healthcare reform debate where a vote needs to be taken by congress. Let's have a vote and live with the results. Here are some reasons that the issue needs to be dealt with now:
8 -- that's the number of people every minute who are denied coverage, charged a higher rate or otherwise discriminated against because of a pre-existing condition.It appears that the White House is putting on a full-court press to get a healthcare bill passed. Where do you stand on this issue?
8 is also the number of lobbyists hired by special interests to influence health reform for every member of Congress in 2009.
The facts speak for themselves -- the status quo isn't working, and special interests are doing everything in their power to maintain that status quo.
Being denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition is something we all know is wrong. And for those 8 people every minute who can't find health coverage or face discrimination because of a pre-existing condition, reform can't wait.
