Keeping You In Stitches

Health care reform, Oh my!

Posted on: March 31, 2010

I’ve kept my “fingers” quiet so far, but I’m going to explode if I don’t get this off my chest.

#1 – People seem to think that health insurance costs will go up….where have you been?  Our’s have gone up or we’ve gotten less benefits for years.  It’s a given with or without health care reform, insurance will go up.  How else will the insurance companies be able to make so much money?

#2 – Does anyone honestly think that our taxes aren’t going to go up?  If so, please let me know what you’re drinking, smoking or sniffing so I can get in on these too.

#3 – The top 3 countries in the world….drum roll…..have government health care!  Ta-da!

#4 – Any one who has a loved one, family member, or friend that has suffered a catastrophic illness/injury, will definitely want the pre-existing conditions dropped.  In the whole scheme of things, I would imagine, that percentage is not real high.  I recently read about a newborn baby that was born with problems and needed 2 surgeries to live….guess what, the insurance company is fighting covering those surgeries because “it was a pre-existing” condition.  If you were that child and had to make a decision, would you say, “Oh, let that baby die?”

#5 – Yep, Medicare will go up just like everything else is going up.  As far as it being a hardship on retirees, perhaps they should have SAVED or INVESTED more wisely.

Everything is going up….it’s a fact. 

Anyone that thinks health care is going up only because of health care reform, needs to think outside the box. With or without it, it’s going up!
