Yahoo! News asked voters to pinpoint one single issue they'd like to see addressed at the Democratic National Convention. Here are one voter's thoughts.
Affordable health care for all people sounded good or so, I thought. Then Obamacare hit and, suddenly, my job was in danger. Because of Medicare cuts, the nursing home here in DeKalb, Miss., has to make serious cuts. President Obama and the Democrats need to discuss changes to their health care plans.
As a nurse, I have seen the poor care given to those without insurance. I have witnessed first-hand the despair of the elderly who had to choose between keeping their lights on or buying their medicine. So, government-funded health care sounded great--at first.
My grandfather, a World War II veteran, lives in the nursing home. Changes to Medicare affect the amount of money he has to pay to stay there.
