For too many, health care is just a political issue. Politicians like Joe Wilson cite statistics and feign outrage but, at the end of the day, do little to help the average family facing nearly $10,000 in health care costs each year—or the 500,000+ South Carolinians with no health insurance at all.
Annabelle Robertson is different. She doesn’t have to imagine what it’s like to live without health insurance, or to not be able to afford a doctor or a trip to the emergency room. She doesn’t have to imagine what it’s like to live in fear that an illness could cause bankruptcy—while insurance companies and drug companies rake in historic profits.
She knows. She’s lived it. That’s why she is fiercely committed to protecting Obamacare, Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, but also, to securing quality HEALTH CARE for all.
