‘I have worked for like 17years, and I work all the time. I have been paying medical bills for my son for nine years since he was born. And he was just diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and had to have insulin every two hours. I just got his prescription, and it was $1000.’

‘I couldn’t pay for it, and I now have to go in and tell my nine-year-old son I couldn’t pay for it. I work a full-time job. My husband works a full-time job. I work a third shift. I go to school during the day. How are you guys making it? Am I the only one struggling?’ Schieffer said with a red face and eyes wet with tears.
