Kudos to the folks suing Governor Corbett and the state over the demise of Adult Basic. The Tobacco monies were meant to be spent on health care concerns, not something called the Governor calls his Liberty Loan Fund, which we all know is created to do little more than line the pockets of the Governor’s biggest campaign contributors.

Today is 4/13/11. 2 weeks ago I had an unexpected medical problem with my Heart. B/P 200/120 , pulse 138. Very High.
The Hospital’s Emergency Room and Hospital admission helped to save my very life. Now I owe $ 30.000 and counting for 1 and a half days. Adultbasic cut me off and I almost died 2 weeks ago. Now I am supposed to go to a Cardio Dr. for followup treatment. I still have not made the appointment. Any suggestions.
