  •  Whoa, do I feel for you (4+ / 0-)

    I lost my insurance due to Multiple Sclerosis.  After 30 years of owning my own business, paying both the employer and employee side of SS, I finally had to stop working & go on disability.  It takes two years to get Medicare, so I got to go two years without insurance. One set of full body muscle spasms, a trip in an ambulance, and one night's stay at the hospital later and I was hit with over $13,000 in charges.  They charged me $650 for one day of the anti-spasm medication that costs me $4.00 per month!  

    I am wondering what percent of the top 1% in this country are in or related to the healthcare profession....just sayin'!

    Let's not let the dishonorable few make the rest of us slaves to their insanity.
