Theresa B., PA

I have a daughter with asthma, and she needs to take four kinds of medicines just to breathe properly. Every day, she must cope with what the government thinks is clear air outside.

She has had attacks just going outside on a muggy day. The cost from both ends does not seem to matter. At 12 years of age and $500.00 in medicine a month, I guess it will take her generation to keep the air clean.
