We need a better healthcare system in the United States

America’s healthcare system is broken! For being one of the richest countries in the world, the U.S. has a very chaotic healthcare system. No matter the proposed solution over the past century, the system has slowly but surely become more and more expensive. This made healthcare become less and less accessible to people, especially in impoverished communities. We need change! We need Better healthcare in the United States.My name is Raziya Lewis and I live in New York City. I’m thankful for the U.S. government’s leadership and efforts to make meaningful reforms a priority so hopefully my concerns can be heard. I’m very passionate about healthcare and when I get older I want to be a doctor. I am writing this petition advocating for a better healthcare system in the United States. A reform of our nation’s healthcare system is long overdue. More than 27 million people in the United States are uninsured and nearly a tenth of the population often get very sick because they can’t afford coverage, live in a state that didn’t expand Medicaid, or are undocumented Americans with below-average incomes. Americans are much more likely than their counterparts in other countries to report not visiting a physician when sick, getting a recommended test, annual checkups, treatment, follow-up care, filling a prescription, and seeing a dentist. It is the responsibility of the government to make America better and advocate for the well-being of impoverished communities. Every American deserves the right to access good healthcare. Many people who live in the United States need help and medical attention but they are forced to ignore this due to the fact that they cannot afford to pay medical bills.  There is a clear gap and inequality divide between the privileged and the poor when it comes to healthcare provisions. All Americans should have access to affordable healthcare. Congress needs to address the existing issues in healthcare such as high medical bills, co-pays, high cost for medication and unfair insurance policies. We need to fix what’s broken in our system. Unfortunately, many people don’t have the resources to help fight for a better healthcare system and this is why many leave this issue unaddressed. There is a silent cry for a better healthcare system and that cry needs to be heard. I’ve witnessed so many people who wanted change but never had the courage to speak up. Our country is in desperate need of healthcare reform and a better healthcare system for all of us. I see people struggle everyday and ignore health issues because they don’t have the money to take care of their health. It’s very sad that these people have to go through this. Reforming healthcare for the better will be a great move for our future prosperity. Please help me solve this issue that is the chaotic healthcare system that we have in this country by finding a way to make healthcare easier and more accessible for everyone. With your help, affordable health will be available for all, in a United States of America where the health and wellness of a person will never ever depend on their wealth. Thank you very much,  Raziya Lewis

Legalized Expanded Gaming in Kentucky

As a resident of Eastern Kentucky, I encourage you to support Mr. Keene's House Bill 190 AN ACT relating to the expansion of gaming and making an appropriation therefor.. This will open up all of Kentucky to a more diverse economy. I’m sure you are aware of how much revenue we are losing to our neighboring states that have riverboat access gambling. Many states have benefited from legal brick-and-mortar casinos, off-track betting locations and state-sponsored lotteries, Kentucky citizens have proved we want expanded gaming since the 1990’s. With the teachers and state worker pension plans in the shape that they are expanded gaming can and will be the savior for retirement plans.I understand the risks of gambling addiction has always been the issue, the small percentage that occurs are already making wagers in other forms or fashions and will continue to do so. It’s plain and simple we need expanded gaming. We need the tourism, we need the tax revenue, we need the other industry that will follow from the increased population that will come from job creation.This is simply the nature of a free market. We cannot protect special interests by shutting down up-and-coming technology and businesses.Thanks for your consideration, and I again urge you to make the suggested amendment on this bill. It is not just me as a player that takes interest but the companies that will be created should this law pass.Sincerely, The Future of Eastern Kentucky 859-587-9606
