Many of my elderly senior citizen friends were informed that their insurance company went bankrupt.

They were told they would have to find new insurance, and the only option given was that they could attend meetings where an insurance broker would give them alternatives. Of course, these options were more expensive and not as good as their previous plans.

One lady was hospitalized and scheduled for an MRI, which she couldn’t have because she no longer had insurance. Her poor husband had to scramble to quickly find coverage.

My solution is to have Congress get on our health care plan and experience what all the taxpayers have to face.

After all, why should Congress decide what is best for us when they are not affected by their decisions?

We as taxpayers should get together and voice our opinions about things that affect our health care and our pocketbooks.
