Another Dem voter walks over HCR (High Corporate Returns)
But I am going to vote with my feet. For my State Senators, Charles Schumer (D) and Kirtsen Gillibrand (D) and my Congressman John Hall (D), don’t look for my vote or support this fall.
Disclosure: Long time Dem. Until recently, a district leader for the party. Steady contributor. Pissed.
Jeebus, who is this guy? A Naderite? A firebagger? A PUMA? Nope:
You have seen this before so please excuse the personal rant. Follows is a copy of a notice from my heavyweight health care provider, UnitedHealthcare/Oxford. Note that at the renewal rate insurance for a family of four now costs $58,600 a year.
This is no Cadillac. I pay minimums and co-pays. I had a surgeon I know and trust cut something recently. He was out of network so that cost $1,300. I have the Freedom Plan. But actually I am in jail. These folks have me over a barrel.
How many people are getting letters like this? Not many. 4-5 million is my guess. More every day is the certain answer. There is nothing in the Healthcare bill that is law today that changes this. There is no interstate competition. There is no reason to it. It is gouging.
I have to suck it up and pay these bills.
C'mon, Bruce. Let's be reasonable. You've got no place to go!
