If one parent is gone all the time, then guess what? Relationship problems come up, and sometimes divorce.
I can tell ya, it wouldn’t matter if I got rid of every luxury I have, and they are few and far between, I could NOT spend $1000 per month to pay for insurance for my family, it just ain’t happening.
I am NOT going to work another full time job, considering I have 2 right now, one is my paying job, the other is my “non-paying” job that hopefully very soon is going to turn into a paying job.
Even when answers for sources is given, there will always be people who do not want to hear it because they would rather believe the lies given by the popular media and the liberal politicians.
Even if there are 37 million uninsured, if over half of them choose to be uninsured because they are self-insured or because they are young and believe themselves to be invincible, there is no reason to believe that any of us are, as one person sent me, ‘looking down noses’ at anyone (see e-mail sent me below).
No one seems to ask CNN, ABC, NBC, or Hillary where they get their figures from and to state their source….
Health Insurance is a fact of life and is something that should be factored into the cost of living, just like car insurance, homeowners (or renters) insurance, etc. Like car and homeowners, you may need to shop around for the most affordable available.
I’m not going to waste my time looking at your other “sources” as the first one from the Business and Media Institute (whatever that is) quotes “one prominent study” but does not mention what study it is. Very poor citation.
Even by the admission of that article, 37 million Americans are uninsured. For whatever reason, health insurance and health care costs are way too high.
I’m glad you can afford it and can look down your nose at everyone on this blog.
If only we were all so wonderful.
You want to know what my sources are? The people that I speak to day in and day out. My friend, that because our company does not offer insurance, cannot afford to go to the dr and get her blood pressure meds. I know hundreds of people that can’t pay their bills, and therefore cannot afford to pay health insurance. I work in the medical field, I talk to the people that deal with this day in and day out.
In a perfect world, everyone would be able to pay for healthcare. But we don’t live in a perfect world.
