Here is a letter I received yesterday from someone who has had personal experience with our health care situation.

Just an example of how Obama Care is a disaster - and destroying our healthcare system even more....I recall chatting with you, and
it took a personal, family situation to enlighten me on how Obama is simply destroying us. If interested - the "real life" situation is below....
REAL LIFE EXAMPLE (probably times hundreds of thousands of Americans)
My 88 year old grandmother suffered a stroke 3 weeks ago - putting her in the hospital for 10 days—paralyzed, etc.
She was put into a rehab center for two weeks - because the hospital was done with her after a week. She was not a patient, she was a #. After two weeks in rehab - she was put back in the hospital when the rehab center determined that she was not making any progress.
Here we are at 1:30AM on Thursday, August 23 (a week later) - and the hospital wants nothing to do with her. The doctor and mainly the hospital, wanted her out today - literally "tossed out" - and sent home. Does not matter she is paralyzed, ill, and in pain....
This is all a result of Obama, and the $700+ BILLION dollars he snapped out from underneath the elderly - who paid into the system their entire lives....had this NOT happened - the hospital would no doubt keep her....or there would be money available for further care.
My family had to hire an attorney to fight the hospital - just to keep her in the hospital for an additional day, so they could prepare for her arrival at home (which will be tomorrow - Friday). The attorneys get richer, and work back door deals on a case by case basis I am sure, with the hospitals.
The system is all screwed up - and all of these hospitals, attorneys, and doctors are doing whatever necessary to survive as a "business" - not as a healthcare institution - to care for the sick. Thanks to Obama.
They throw the elderly out the door, because the "BED" they are in, cannot create anymore revenue for the hospital. They need fresh, new stroke victims, and alike - to run their tests, take their medications, IV's etc., etc - - to create a money making machine. My grandmother is a DNR (do not resuscitate patient) - which basically means - not much money to be made off of her, and with Medicare in the process of being thrown out the window - - the hospital’s mentality is - - - let’s empty the "BED" - get her out of here - and move on to our next "CUSTOMER" - so we can make more money. The doctors, nurses, and social workers are all miserable.
Thanks to Obama - - - the hospitals don't care about the patients, treat them badly, and as my father said, they consider her just a # on the wall - there is nothing else to do with them except throw them in re-hab....or in our case - back home, with hospice, for 4 hours a day. The other 18 hours is up to the family to deal with.
It’s sad, they aren't even treated like human beings - this treatment and attitude didn't take place in any of the other administrations....just more of a reason for you to assist in getting Obama out of office, and Romney in - to restore the Medicaid system, which we all pay into for our future well being.
There is no question that Romney & Paul need to win this election. Keep going after Obama the way you do, the message you deliver is powerful - and spreads thru the social media like wild fire - the USA needs you to push them over the top.
As far as my grandmother goes - she has lived an awesome life - and is a great person....it is just incredible what is going on, all thanks to the President of the United States. I know you get thousands of letters - I just wanted to give you an example from someone that you know, and can trust - and someone that is not looking for anything but to be informative to you.
"After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency. This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country. I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election. I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.
I want to personally thank the millions of Americans who have joined the various Trump grassroots movements and written me letters and e-mails encouraging me to run. My gratitude for your faith and trust in me could never be expressed properly in words. So, I make you this promise: that I will continue to voice my opinions loudly and help to shape our politician's thoughts. My ability to bring important economic and foreign policy issues to the forefront of the national dialogue is perhaps my greatest asset and one of the most valuable services I can provide to this country. I will continue to push our President and the country's policy makers to address the dire challenges arising from our unsustainable debt structure and increasing lack of global competitiveness. Issues, including getting tough on China and other countries that are methodically and systematically taking advantage of the United States, were seldom mentioned before I brought them to the forefront of the country's conversation. They are now being debated vigorously. I will also continue to push for job creation, an initiative that should be this country's top priority and something that I know a lot about. I will not shy away from expressing the opinions that so many of you share yet don't have a medium through which to articulate.
I look forward to supporting the candidate who is the most qualified to help us tackle our country's most important issues and am hopeful that, when this person emerges, he or she will have the courage to take on the challenges of the Office and be the agent of change that this country so desperately needs."
Thank you and God Bless America!
Donald J. Trump
