Health care. Do you have it? If not, you’re out of luck. If so, you’re one of the lucky ones. Especially if your employer picks up the entire premium for you. Or maybe your health care cup is half full. Yes, you have health insurance — but your employer pays half or less of the premium. Which means, given the cost of premiums these days, much of your salary goes just to ensure you have coverage.
Unless of course, you have Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield. In which case, right now, your hard earned dollars are going to a company that says you can’t even use your insurance at the three nearest hospitals.
Hmmm. And people are saying we don’t need health care reform in this country? That’s just sick.
It’s time for real and civilized debate on this topic. Let’s stop all this dog and pony show nonsense. Because this system just ain’t working.
