    Today my sister, who hangs wallpaper for a living, got a BCBS premium increase notice– her insurance is going up to $600 a month, and she has no real risk factors other than she’s over 55. So she has to cancel her insurance– the recession has not been kind to housing-related trades. Here’s how I altered my postcard to Sen. Hagan:
    Please SUPPORT government-run health insurance. We can meet our health care challenges without the insurance companies ripping us off. Tell Senate leaders that North Carolina doesn’t need insurance companies dictating health policy.

    We NEED a public option so people who want to buy their own insurance can actually afford coverage.
