“My husband and I are both freelancers, so when we don’t work, we don’t get paid. Last month he had a heart attack. I had to stay home and take care of him. Neither of us was earning anything, and on top of this we have high deductible insurance. A triple whammy.  My husband is recovering well, but paid medical leave for him, and paid family leave for me, would have been a great help to us. We need this insurance in CT so we can stay competitive with states like New York and Rhode Island which have this protection for small businesses like ours.”
