Mary Brown is a Florida woman who had no health insurance. She is the lead plaintiff challenging President Obama's healthcare law. She didn't want to pay for healthcare insurance and didn't want to be penalized on her taxes for not having insurance. She was lauded as a symbol of proud independence.
Mary got sick and had medical care. She was unable to pay her bills. Brown and her husband filed for bankruptcy with $4,500 in unpaid medical bills. These bills, unpaid by Mary Brown, will be paid by taxpayers like you and me who pay healthcare bills directly or have insurance that covers them.
Please help me send a message to Mary and ask her to pay us back for covering her healthcare expenses. We're asking that she send $1 to the first 4,500 people who sign this petition.
What she has gone through is unfortunate and we don't wish it on anyone. Her very situation is an example of one critical problem the healthcare law remedies.
Let's ask Mary to show good faith and take responsiblity for her healthcare costs.
