Like I said before, I’m fed up with what’s going on in our country. I’m outraged by all the crap that’s going on with the economy, and I can’t help thinking about how this is going to effect our patients. No job means no health insurance which ultimately means no access to health care. This is NOT good people. Billionaire Warren Buffett summed it up best when he said that our country is facing an “economic Pearl Harbor.” So, what can we do? VOTE! Think about what would happen if all 2.9 million nurses in our country were registered voters and marched down to the polls on November 4th. Talk about an earthquake! We collectively hold tremendous political power in our hands. The first thing you need to do is register to vote, so go do it! Each vote can make a difference in the lives of our patients.
