Hard working, and at-risk

OUR FAMILY just lost MassHealth because we are over the income limit: too rich!

We work hard and scrape by. Meanwhile, the legislators who enjoy a great health plan think it's fine for my husband to risk seizures, and for me to risk a fatal asthma attack, now that we cannot afford medication. Other countries see our government as barbaric because of our lack of universal healthcare.
