Here you can see the horrible choices facing someone who came for the Little Rock health fair: do I see a doctor about the Stage-Three cancer diagnosis I got seven years ago that bankrupted me, or do I try to see a dentist about the immediate and agonizing pain from this abscessed tooth?

Vicki Hansens real worry seems to be: Will I be able to see a cancer doctor AND a dentist today, at this appointment Ive been waiting days for? Should an Arkansan with a Stage-Three Cancer diagnosis that bankrupted her have to wait seven years for a free health fair to arrive in her city in order to get followup care?

And when the health care arrives, should she really have to worry whether she can see a cancer screening doctor for the first time in seven years, or the dentist about her terrible tooth pain?

Should any American really be subjected to this kind of treatment?

Blanche Lincoln, are you listening? Your constituent Vicky Hansen has this to say to you about health care reform: I think they should help us they dont know what its like! Wait until someone tells them they have been denied. Wait until they deny you, tell you that you cant have health insurance, that you are not worthy.
