Quote of the Day 9/8/2015

“Without health care, you really don’t have anything. If you’re sick all the time, you can’t have jobs. We’ve seen a lot of dental problems because there has not been dental, and if you have a big toothache, you’re not going to be able to go to work. You’re not going to be able to apply for a job with half your teeth missing.”
