    exactly what is ‘health reform’???. The unspeak about the healing arts coming from the chattering classes, TV bloviaters is confusing the public.

    I am looking forward to attending this event and hopefully I will have a chance to speak and share my families story to underscore the need for Health Care Reform to include a National Public Health Plan with a Hardship Waiver option.

    Health reform is simple. All Americans should be able to afford to buy a decent health plan, even if they get sick and lose their job, get cancer, get old, decide to start a small business, or whatever.

    This is the case in every other wealthy country in the world and should be the situation here too.
