He made it possible to refinance my home otherwise I would have lost it.
In 2014 the total amount of students loans in repayment can only be 10% of your gross monthly income versus right now I'm paying just slightly over 50% (talk about struggling to make ends meet).

Insurance already dictates how much a patient can receive in supplies for a month - too bad if it will actually only get the patient through half of the month. This means it leaves us nurses scrambling and asking co-workers if they can spare "x, y or z" to cover the other half.
And no one in the U.S. should be denied medical coverage due to a pre-existing condition of acne (come on)!
