My son is a great kid. My requirement is to cover his healthcare. My employer provides great family coverage that was helpful when three kids were at home. But there is no 1-dependent healthcare coverage, forcing me to pay three times the amount – for one child.
When I shopped around – and Republicans, even those who promote the Utah plan – claim this stuff should be treated like regular competitive retail businesses – SHOP TIL WE DROP! —- I was treated like crap, as if to ask me, “how dare you look for a lower cost!” How dare I look for a “lower cost???????” But, gee… Republicans say that’s exactly what we have! Horse s*** on the Republicans. Whether it’s Sarah Palin or Mr. Steele (chair?) or Rick “Show-em the Dead Fetus” Santorum, you are all living in a fantasy world.
IMAGINE! If I were to be treated in this manner as I shopped at Target, Wal Mart, T.J. Maxx, or K Mart, or Sears… Unthinkable, right? Why do Republicans believe so fervently that the same thing exists as in the retail market? A bunch of ignorant fools live in the Republican Party.
I’m not perfect and I make mistakes. But I certainly try to remain on solid ground. And if I am not, I hope my friends tell me so…. and I make a change. I have had to eat crow and acknowledge mistakes. It really does not hurt. The Republicans REFUSE to acknowledge their mistakes and make changes. They love that money – CORRUPTION – from the big companies.
Well, the rest of us have little money left over to INVEST IN AMERICA. And isn’t that what it SHOULD be about? Investing in insurance companies at high costs – in order to pay unproductive workers shuffling paper and wasting our time considering pre-existing conditions is not my idea of investing in America in order to make this nation more productive. Who cooks the books when it comes to figuring GDP? Not much productivity when I spend 15 minutes or more each time I go to another doctor’s office – as a result of one doctor being dumped by the insurance company.
And then there are the pre-existing conditions. It’s insulting enough to consider answering such questions when it comes to a middle-aged person like me. But for a pre-teen? Pre-existing conditions? From the same insurance company that insured this kid almost from birth? And this is productivity in America? Such crap does not exist and money wasted in systems in Canada and Britain and other WESTERN nations. OH, SILLY ME! Those countries have the lowest cost per person for healthcare while America has the highest.
Hey! Let’s all get on the bandwagon to defend the ideology that validates keeping the HIGHEST COST INSURANCE OF ALL THE WESTERN NATIONS!
Gee! If I got on the insurance company bandwagon, I would be a winner, then, right? Otherwise, I am threatened by running out of money and then having to die due to lack of ability to pay. And no matter who may be at fault, Republicans would always figure it’s my fault. Why? Because CEOs and a few stockholders believe THEIR lives are more important than mine! Ah! They must be GODS! That’s right… they are immortal!
More like IMMORAL in their greed and selfishness. The word used in the 1970s for Richard Nixon is appropriate – not the acronym, but the word – creeps!
