I Have A Dream
**I started this post on MLK Day and forgot about it. I'm going to post it anyway.
So yeah, I have a dream.
I dream that every employer in America quits offering health care to their employees. Sorry folks, but yes I do.
You want to know why? Because when that happens, and only when that happens, this health care mess will be fixed in about forty five minutes.
Those of you who get health insurance from your workplace, you really, really have no idea what a mess this shit is. And I mean that.
Three days after the election in Massachusetts, I received a letter from my shitty health insurer telling me they were raising my rates by $100 a month. It's almost like they were waiting for the trump card.
To add insult to injury, the following was the last line of the letter.
"Hopefully, federal health care reforms will soon make health insurance more affordable to all."
Uh, yeah, right.
