Harold Pollack teaches health policy and public health. When his mother-in-law died suddenly eight years ago, he and his wife became responsible for his brother-in-law Vincent, who is developmentally disabled. Without help from Medicaid and Medicare they wouldn't have been able to save for their daughters' college or prepare for their future. The 2012 election includes proposals to cut Medicaid by more than $1 trillion, including the repeal of health reform which would deprive tens of millions of people of the opportunity to obtain health insurance.
Dr. Pollack knows first-hand that we are all vulnerable. We need to take care of each other. That's the central issue of this campaign.
