Well, the "health" insurance company just jacked the premium by another thousand dollars a year. This is your reward for surviving another year with insurance-based health care. Congratulations! Being a year older, you are now more likely to get sick, so we're going to charge you a boatload more money for the same inadequate shit we were already charging you too much for last year.
How much longer are the citizens of this country going to put up with such a doomed system?
It does send a clear message that if you have not managed to become wealthy, or made yourself valuable enough to qualify for what we call benefits, you deserve to die, and die poor at that.
One or two people quitting it will only mean that they shrivel away as the system intended. If you want to change the game, many thousands of people will have to refuse to play it.
My health is worse since I have been trying to scrape up the money for health insurance premiums. And, with that money gone, I just don't have the money to go to a doctor. If I really am sick I can't afford a bunch of expensive testing not covered by the lame-ass policy I can afford. If I'm not really sick, it was a waste of money and time.
Ah well, suck it up. We're really just here to die as bravely as we can. If you happen to enjoy yourself while waiting, good for you.
