Stacking the Bricks: Code RED for entrepreneurs – Senate healthcare bill will destroy us
This article is aimed at entrepreneurs, but it does a good job of breaking down some of the nuances of the U.S. Senate-proposed healthcare bill, and it’s not good for those of us with pre-existing conditions or those who receive Medicaid benefits. There’s even some bad news for people who have insurance through their employers. I know Obamacare wasn’t the answer, but this seems to be even worse. It’s clear these changes would benefit the insurance companies, not us. I would encourage all of my U.S. readers to take a look at the article and call or email your two U.S. senators to express your opposition or support. We only a few days to make our voices heard because they will vote after the July 4 holiday. Find your U.S. senators here.

You can have a negative test result and still have Lyme. In fact, it happened to me … TWICE! Read on for more information.
