John in Wheeler, Indiana

John actually had two stories. First, his wife has diabetes, lupus, and fibromyalgia and he feels that the drug companies are just pushing drugs … through the doctors. “The drugs don’t work,” he told me. “She doesn’t seem to get better and all that seems to happen is that she gains weight.” He then shared his second healthcare story which happened after his first son was born. The $11,000 dollar bill forced his family into bankruptcy, again, soon after his wife gave birth. “It was like the bill was ‘padded’ but there was nothing I could do about it.”
