Pointing Out the Obvious

I've waited a long time for health care reform to be at the top of the agenda. Now that congress is finally addressing the issue, politicians on both sides of the aisle are focusing most of their time talking about the cost of reforming our system. Democrats for health care reform are pointing out how much money it will save the country as a whole while the Republicans are pointing out how it will drive our country deeper into debt. I get that both sides are trying to win the messaging war by saying that their health care stance is more fiscally responsible. The truth is most Americans know the reality of the system quite well.

The reality is if you get real sick, no matter if you're insured or not, you're probably financially fucked.
