Fighting for the Uninsured

Hi everyone, my name is Tina and I am fighting for the uninsured in America. I am appalled at the way insurance companies get to pick and choose whomever they want to cover. I want affordable healthcare for all, and I would love to have everyone here in the US join me. Do you know anyone that is uninsured or underinsured? How about if the person pays way too much for insurance? Message me and I will get back to you about what I can do to help. You can also work with me in trying to fight for the uninsured. You can email me at nguyentjett@yahoo.com with all questions and I will answer them! Let's get those 46 million Americans covered so they will be able to sleep better at night! Tina

I'm uninsured. Why? Because I am a stay at home mom for my kids while my s/o works to pay the bills. He has insurance and so do our children but I can't be put on his. You ask why again? Well because I am not his legal wife. But what about all those people in domestic partnerships, don't they get covered? Yes of course because the gay rights movement has given those couples the same rights as married heterosexual couples. So why don't s/o and I get legally married so I have the same coverage and rights as a wife? Because we don't want to and shouldn't be forced to just because insurance companies pick and choose what constitutes a family.

i agree with you ^_^ i think it's wrong that insurance companies have strict guidelines like if you're too overweight or underweight or if you're too old which is why i am with a company that is not insurance and we take people of all ages, of all weight, we don't turn anybody down :-) but thank you for your response i appreciate it and yes i do agree with you
