    Here's a link to an article about a family's struggle against excessive health care for an 85-year-old Alzheimer's patient.

    I'll agree. Health Care is out of control and has been for a great many years Ralph.

    I didn't read the story, but also have no need to read, yet another sob story about American citizens getting screwed over. It is nothing new anymore.

    Trying to find help when you need it has been a nightmare and has kept me from having crucial tests done this past week. I can't just shell out 8K for the test when I don't have it. I can't qualify for medicare or medicaid and because I didn't have insurance when this was diagnosed I can't get insurance now to help offset the cost. It f'ing sucks.

      Yes, it does. Perhaps it will get better as the reforms come on line.
