Husband and Son Cannot Afford Private Insurance

I saw your story on CNN. I wanted to let you know that I am behind your efforts for a public health care option. You are 100% correct! All Americans need and should have health care coverage at a price they can afford. My husband, who should have been able to retire, has not retired because he cannot afford to cover me on BC/BS if he leaves his job. My son, who has his own web design company, has no insurance at all because no one will cover him because they say he is too fat; so although he is willing to pay for insurance at a reasonable price, he cannot find any company willing to give him coverage. This is disgusting!
