This deserves our undivided attention!
On the heels of the Aurora shooting tragedy there has been a fundraising campaign to raise money for the uninsured victims, some who are facing significant healthcare costs. In a time of crisis, Americans tend to rally to help those in need. This happens on a routine basis in communities around the country where a child gets an unusual disease or cancer and his or her parents are uninsured or woefully under insured. We witness campaign drives around golf tournaments, BBQ picnics, musical events, etc. that lift your spirits to help a child in need. Yet, we need to step back from this and see the bigger problem – these folks could not afford to be insured or had some form of limited insurance plan. This is a huge problem in America with over 45 million uninsured people of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, religions and political affiliations.
