I have done my best to survive being unemployed and now too ill to work in a career where I worked harder than anyone who worked for me. Ask them. Please. I am extraordinary at reconciliation but I have 'attitude issues'. so have remained unemployed. It has crushed me and then my body gave up because my soul did. and I fell to bits, literally. Caring about others drains you and yet Katherine would not stop and her body betrayed her. Mine is trying to but we have a cunning plan to keep me alive, I am Voldermort according to a survey I took. (my son calls me Darth Smurfious' What I am trying to say is she died fighting a government who do not listen to the voices. But EVERYONE has to listen to her voice, her words, her message of hope for us all. The effort was 'beyond the call of duty' to mere mortals and rest assured tonight when you look up there is a new star up there shining bright forever and it is Katherine, celebrate her life not mourne her earthly death. Life is but a dream... Now everyone sign the petition please for these souls who need us? Please? Namaste

This is a good caring state. North Carolinians are better people than to to just throw our poor to the wolves. If our neighbors are suffering, we care about that.

I have a niece who is suffering greatly from health conditions that need desperate medical treatment which she cannot get because she does not have insurance and is unable to get it because NC opted out of the Medicaid Expansion for people who fall in her income level. She doesn't make the income that would give her the opportunity to have affordable insurance because she is too sick to work. She needs to have medical insurance so she can get medical treatment so she can Work.

There are a lot of people suffering in this state, and there isn't a lot of hope that government will do its job and help those it is responsible for. This state and its government have a lot to make up for. Let's start by doing the right thing.

The expansion of Medicaid/Medicare will not cost our State any extra money and will provide jobs for THOUSANDS of North Carolinians. Meanwhile, thousands of people in our State are coffering mightily from lack of money - through NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN!!! People, not corporations should be our #1 concern!!
