There's the Rub
I apologize to any who follow this blog for my absence. I'm sick. I'm hurting. I am without insurance but I did manage through the good graces of my old physician to be seen for a bacterial infection. Unfortunately he gave me Cipro and I had a bad reaction. In my case this mean a whole lot of agonizing pain in my arms legs, feet and hands. with breaks from the pain from hydrocodone which I fear will run out before the pain.
In the mean time (and I do mean MEAN), what I notice about both the lousy Health Care Bills in Congress is that the bastards still want to keep it tied to employment. Never mind that jobs are drying up faster than spilt whiskey in August, if you aren't employed, you are suplus population and can go ahead and die! Few of the bourgoise jackasses in either wing of Congress have ever worked for wages, or else they would know that to get insurance, having a job isn't even enough. It must be Full-Time to qualify for benefits and you know damn well that full-time work is even harder to find and keep for that very reason. Thierin lies the rub and the fatal flaw that makes anything short of a Medicare type single-payer plan absolute and useless bullshit. A cruel sham at best.
