    Did you actually view this video? Because Rev. Barber delivers a logical and passionate case for why we all, including you, deserve access to affordable, quality health coverage. You did not comment on the speech or the issue, but instead poked fun at another human being’s medical and physical condition. Even with that, Rev. Barber would still find value in you as an individual and pray for you.
