1 How to Cut a Card! By: Chanise

2 Copy and Paste the Article into a word document "Myth 18: The bill will end medical bankruptcy and provide all Americans with peace of mind. Fact: Most people with medical bankruptcies already have insurance, and out- of-pocket expenses will continue to be a burden on the middle class. In 2009, 1.5 million Americans declared bankruptcy Of those, 62% were medically related Three-quarters of those had health insurance The Obama bill leaves 24 million without insurance The maximum yearly out-of-pocket limit for a family will be $11,900 on top of premiums A family with serious medical problems that last for a few years could easily be financially crushed by medical cost Real health care reform is needed. But this bill falls short of that on many levels."

3 Bold and underline the important text and information (12pt) "Myth 18: The bill will end medical bankruptcy and provide all Americans with peace of mind. Fact: Most people with medical bankruptcies already have insurance, and out-of-pocket expenses will continue to be a burden on the middle class. In 2009, 1.5 million Americans declared bankruptcy Of those, 62% were medically related Three-quarters of those had health insurance The Obama bill leaves 24 million without insurance The maximum yearly out-of-pocket limit for a family will be $11,900 on top of premiums A family with serious medical problems that last for a few years could easily be financially crushed by medical cost Real health care reform is needed. But this bill falls short of that on many levels."

5 Tag. A tag is going to summarize in one line what the card is saying and what is important about it. (14 pt) This will help you find the card in round and know what it is says without reading it all. Don’t power tag (tags that over exaggerate impact or misrepresent the card) 62% of all bankruptcies are medical related and ¾ of those had health insurance. 24 million won’t have insurance.
