I just got off the telephone with a forty year old carpenter that just found out that he has bladder cancer. A friend told the carpenter to call me because I had been thru it and was still kicking. I informed him that everything would be okay and layed out what would happen to him in the days ahead. What I told him appeared to put his mind at ease, but then he told me what was really bothering him. He and his wife do not have health insurance and he and the doctors office were both trying to find him some outside assistance. I suggested he check on medicade or medicare and he informed me that he had and that if he was an immigrant he could get emergency medicade. That blew my mind that a US citizen could not get emergency medicade, but an immigrant could. He went on to say that immigrant's were slowing taking his work away and he was supporting their emergency medical care. What in the hell is going on in Washington, DC ? The end.
