There is so much story telling on this board that it makes me wonder how ethical some on here are. I keep reading about people who say they can not get health insurance. Yeah right. More like they do not want to pay for it- either with cash or hard work.
My wife has been sick with a very expensive couple of illnesses for the last 15 years. We have been on both individual and group plans during that time period. We have paid out quite a bit over the years for her illness, but we have never taken any type of govt handout or charity. We never will.
There are numerous companies in this country that have excellent health insurance plans. Many of them only require you to work part time in order to get the benefits. Most do not have preexisting condition clause that will last more than the first year of employment. Even in this down economy, many are hiring right now.
Just like I wrote in my last blog, this country has a number of wimps in it. They like to tell us that we need the govt to help get medical insurance. What they are really saying is that they want someone else to pay for their medical so they do not have to pay for it or work for it. What happened to pride?
