If you haven’t had a chronic illness while self-employed, the term “single payer” might not mean much to you. Let me explain what it means to me. Grab a cup of coffee and put your feet up, this is going to take a few minutes.

Believe me. Take a few minutes (9 to be precise), and read this (at link above). Then send it to others and strongly recommend that they read it, and then have them send it on to yet others who might also care. This needs to go viral. You will not find a better description of why we need a single payer system. (Caution: she uses all caps near the end of her story.)
