Anybody who reads the almost daily news story about deaths from trucking accidents on our interstate highways then reads an article like this and thinks it's a good idea is a fool. Your representative is not working for YOU here.

What is your life worth or what is the life worth of a family member or friend. This is not the 60s anymore.... $250,000 or even $500,000 does not go very far when paying for medical treatment. How is the family going to survive when the money runs out..??? Is the state going to set in and help>>???? The Feds...??? The current group in the Statehouse and in Washington don't care about the little person on their business buddies that may have to pay out a large settlement. These Good All Knowing Christians (the Chosen Ones) will never lose a minute of sleep about you or your family member.
