I was glued to the TV last night at 7 waiting to hear about Obama's plan for Health Insurance Reform. I totally agree with his views on this, DH and I both have sever Pre-existing conditions and when I was downsized five years ago we could not continue the insurance coverage I had through work (I think they make this task impossible for a reason...the employer does not want to continue contributing to the cause.
What annoyed me the most were the people sitting there all smug with there govt run insurance programs not wanting anything to change. Maybe we should not give them all the tests they need to get well, maybe we should make them pay full price for prescriptions or maybe we should strip them of their jobs ans securities and see how eager they become for reform.
Please stop stonewalling and get something done for Us hardworking Citizens who require affordable health insurance.
I went to the ER this spring, was packed full of pain meds (no xrays, no mri) and sent home the bill was over 1500, I made a deal with the hospital for a reduced balance who do you think will end up paying the rest...the smug ones that hold insurance policies were their prices are jacked up to cover the cost of the uninsured.
Wake up and see the light doing nothing is not an answer. Even small changes can bring major help to some of us.
Happy Stamp Day!
