Well, now we know how they really, really stand and how they really feel about the people of North Carolina. Our elected officials—Richard Burr, Walter Jones and Virginia Fox—have voted to deny North Carolina citizens’ health care. Deny health care covering your preexisting conditions. Deny health care for your child to stay on your insurance. They have voted against you having health care, but they have health care. Think about that next time in 2014. Okay, people. Let’s get busy.


In reference to the hospitals and emergency room use, several times I couldn’t go to the emergency room and be seen because there’s so many Medicaid patients using it like a doctor’s office. Maybe they should go and make an appointment and sit the doctor’s office for care like I do.
