But that is exactly the choice millions of people with serious medical conditions who are denied health insurance have to make every day under the status quo.
Our nation's health care system simply isn't meeting the needs of our people, and that's not going to change until Congress finishes the job and passes meaningful health care reform that ensures that no one is denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions and that people aren't forced into financial ruin to pay for medical expenses.
As the debate in Washington continues, there is still time to make a difference.
Sign a petition asking Congress to help pass meaningful health care reform now >
We need to improve access to health coverage and lower the costs of care - and we need to do it now. We have come so far and endured so much in this fight. It is time for members of both parties to put the American people above partisan politics.
Now is not the time to turn back. Too many Americans simply can't afford any more delays.
Tell Congress that we’ve come too far and accomplished too much to let meaningful health care reform fail >
