The video Phil Berger needs to watch

If there is a single person who stands in the way of providing life-affirming health insurance to a half-million uninsured human beings and, quite literally, saving the lives of thousands of North Carolinians (particularly those caught up in the opioid crisis) it’s Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger.

Berger is a husband and father and grandfather and it just seem impossible to believe that he could view the testimony of the two men in the video below that was recently shared by the good people at NC Child — two men who look and sound an awful lot like him — and adhere to his heartless stance.

C’mon Senator Berger — take a chance, open your heart and let your inner humanity come to the surface. It won’t hurt.
