For a person battling Cancer, per se, the medical bills can be astronomical. If you have an FSA account through work, you can set aside money pre-tax to pay for treatment. The new limit as of 2013 is $2500. That's not a big drop in the proverbial medical bucket.
If they are so concerned about people not going into debt for medical expenses, wouldn't they have made FSA contributions unlimited, so people could better plan for their own personal needs?
No, because it's tax free. They want as much as our money as they can get. I seriously doubt that patient out of pocket expense and responsible planning are anywhere on their radar.

Because now more than ever the government needs every penny of tax revenue!! We have an FSA for our children's autism therapies--since we spend over $20,000/year on both of them, and yet Obama is trying sooooo hard to help those families dealing with autism (and other medical conditions)! At least (for know) we are able to itemize our medical expenses, and we get a little reprieve. How are those promises coming along dealing with autism, Mr. President?! (sarcasm)
