  • Put aside that the reasoning of “the bill should be passed because we promised it regardless of the substance” is the epitomy of poor decision making and my ten year old explains why that is,so eloquently.
    Also I have been a nurse for 24 years, most of that time in Emergency Depts. for the last ten years in Urgent Care. I can assure you when someone has a life changing diagnosis, of which I can name hundreds, do they say well thank god I saw that coming and had chosen the benefits to cover it Mr Graham could come up with a few from his own career in Medicine. Also I have not heard or seen any comments on how Emergency Depts will be affected. I know in my community emergency depts are overloaded and often times there is a back log of patients (15-20) just waiting for a room to open. Often the hospital is full with no rooms available who is responsible for the care of these patients? The nurse in the ED. Think if this was your job…
    I would love a response zero my questions and am eagerly wAiting for that response
