Health Care For All? Gimme A Freakin’ Break!
Hey Folks, let me tell you a true story. I’m sure it’s not the only case of this, and it’s making the health insurance companies rich at the expense of the elderly, poor, and disabled.
There is a person I know who has been collecting their Social Security Disability benefits for almost 15 years. They had their Medi-Care configured so they didn’t have to pay for anything, that’s anything except a measely $2 co-pay on covered perscriptions. It took years of struggle and verification to get their medical coverage to a place they can afford, seeing as they have to live on less than $1000 per month. The Federal Government realized that on that amount of income, it is impossible to pay for health care. So it was determined by the so called “idiots” running Medi-Care that my friend was not required to pay for their insurance. The people at the government knew it was wrong to charge this person, and I’m sure lots of other low, fixed income recipients, for health insurance. So they didn’t.
Then along comes Health Care Reform. Puh-leeeze! Reform? Don’t they mean hand-out? The Federal Goveernment, in all it’s might and wisdom, decided to change things for the better and provide health care to everyone. Everyone who can afford it, is satisfied with ‘western’ medicine, and is willing to subsidize the pharmaceutical, petro-chemical, and insurance industries, that is!
What is primarily flawed with this “reform” is that our once government operated and funded Medi-Care system is now run by huge health insurance companies who really couldn’t care less about you or I, only their shareholder’s bottom line. And so, the inevitable happened. My friend’s share of cost went frrom nothing, where it should be, to a cost that made it prohibitive, and caused them to have to cancel their coverage! Imagine, trying to survive on $1000 a month, and not have health insurance. I’m not going to name names, oh hell, why not, but AARP, a company that makes it’s money supposedly helping our ‘retired’ citizens, has showed their true colors, by ignoring government guidelines and precident, and forcinig the poor, elderly, and disabled to pay for something that not even the evil villians in our disfunctional government would think of charging it’s citizens for! Such is corporate greed. This is what happens when fascism takes hold. And if there is anyone with half a brain living in the United States that believe we are not becoming a fascist state needs to pull their head out of their ass! We have the Supreme Court granting ‘personhood’ to corporations, foriegn corporations buying politicians and elections, and health insurance compsnies profiting by taking advantage of the most needy of our people.
And on top of all this nonsense, this so called ‘health care for everyone’ crap is just that, crap! If you choose to be treated hollistically, or by a practicioner of Eastern or other medical philosophies, you, my friends, are shit out of luck! I know of only one health insurance firm that covers “alternative” therapies, one. So, I ask you, how is this “health care for everyone”? This is nothing more than an clandestine giveaway to Big Pharma, Big Oil, and most of all, Big Insurance!!
These are the organizations that that control our government, who get all the consideration, who influence the vote. They are the true enemy we are fighting. It boggles my mind to think that the majority of Americans are blind to these injustices, but then I remember that, unfortunately, the majority of the American people watch corporate television, listen to corporate radio, and read corporate newspapers. Oh yeah, and they watch Fox News. So much for anything of truth getting through to those folks.
So, my friend is doing the best they can, and praying to Christ that they don’t get really sick!!
