Everyone should post this, or else they are BITCHES

September 3, 2009

Today, the propaganda machine was in full force on the Facebook newsfeed.  It went something like this:

“No one should die because they cannot afford health care, and no one should go broke because they get sick. If you agree, post this as your status for the rest of the day.

So, like, DUH.  Who would NOT agree with such a broad-sweeping, moralistic statement?  I mean, who would NOT agree with it, out of context, without the spectre of  “Health Care Reform”, such as it is?

The question is, what are you gonna DO about it?

My taxes are ridiculously high as it is (whose aren’t?).  Do I want them to go higher?  No.

My current health plan, which I was forced to accept because it is all that was being offered by the husband’s law firm, SUCKS.  With its ridiculous deductable and absurd lack of plan doctors, it makes Oxford look like manna from heaven.  And yet I pay nearly 20 grand per year for it, including copays and deductables, and I think that is a conservative estimate.  Do I want to pay more and still be told that this procedure, that test, this medication is not covered?  Do I want to find that NONE of my doctors are on my plan a year from now because the plan sucks even worse for providers?  No.  No.

I don’t have the answers.  But I know what I don’t want them to be.  So, when I fail to update my status as you wish, just remember, it might not be because I disagree with the sentiment.  Because, really, who would??  It just might be that I don’t agree with the propaganda machine and its insidious use of this sentimental crap to {shhh….silently} advertise a reform plan with which I don’t necessarily agree.
