President Obama's health care law comes too late to help James Mingo, but the Walnut Hills man hopes it may help others.
Mingo developed a rapidly progressing eye disease following a head injury, but without health insurance he says he had to wait weeks before getting treatment.
"If I had affordable health care I wouldn't be in the situation I am now I'd be able to see. By me having to wait...it made my health deteriorate," said Mingo.
James' wife, Anita, says she hopes the President's health care law will help.
"Well my hope first is that this doesn't happen to anybody else. If you're able to quickly go in and see your own doctor the perhaps they'll be able to see you sooner," she said.
With James unable to work Anita says the family's finances have been devastated.
"We're living off of about 600-dollars a month and that's for me and my husband and also our three grandchildren and this has been a big strain without him working," she said.
To make matters worse, James' application for disability was rejected. He says he received a letter from Social Security indicating the agency feels he is able to work despite proof he is 100-percent blind in one eye and 98-percent blind in the other.
In our commitment to balanced news we asked the Mingo's about critics' charges that the government reaching too far into people's personal lives.
"I hope it doesn't put too much power into the government's hands, but also give the citizens also some type of say so in his or her medical....situation," said James.
"Absolutely....that is a big concern...however, without insurance that creates a lot bigger problems and more emergency problems which happen to be even more costly," said Anita.
President Obama has promised that under his health care program, illness or injury won't push families, like the Mingos, into financial ruin.
