I really do not make it a habit to blog about political things, but this one hits close to home and it seems is a stepping stone to taking back some control that the CRA's have over everyone.
I have seen the impact of medical debt on families and individuals who are unemployed or uninsured. I have seen collection agency and debt ruin people. Not luxury debt, not someone just being irresponsible, but debt incurred from an urgent need for medical care and, even with the best of intentions, the inability to repay it or repay it quickly enough.
The Medical Debt Responsibility Act of 2011 provides relief to those who pay off their debt, allowing it to be removed from their credit reports. It is not a handout, but a necessary forgiveness. Who can say medical debt is any indication of someone's credit trend?
So, if you're a follower of my blog or someone who just stumbled across it.. please visit the facebook page and like us. Share it with your friends and let your local representative know you support this bill!
