I think we all know the healthcare system in America sucks. Right?
Well, I guess if you’ve been incredibly lucky, healthy, and well-covered your whole life, you might be under the illusion that everyone has access to decent healthcare. Especially hard-working moms with little kids, right?
Nope. Check out some facts (courtesy of MomsRising):
- At least 9 million children (probably many more) have no health insurance at all.
- Having a child is now the single best predictor that a woman will go bankrupt.
- Working families make up 81 percent of uninsured people.
If you’re still not convinced—or if you are, but need some fuel to get you good and angry (but still laugh at the stupidity)—go see Michael Moore’s film SiCKO, opening tonight in theaters across the country.
Let’s hope it will spark some positive change in the healthcare system so that every working family will have the access they need to quality healthcare—without going broke.
