I’ve been denied health care coverage (Blue Cross and Celtic), for the crime of having prior conditions. It is therefore with bitter attachment I watch our government fight over health care reform. If they wanted to, Republicans and Democrats could join together and pass a simple bill: Insurers should not be allowed to pick and choose who they cover. They won’t. They will bicker, grand stand and attach riders to bills and – in the end – fail to take decisive action.
I’m not in the mood to hear bullshit supporting the privilege of insurance companies to discriminate over the rights of individuals to affordable medical care. The truth is that in any other industrialized nation this would not be an issue: It damn hell shouldn’t be in ours.
I have COBRA for a while longer, but its very expensive and the coverage isn’t that great. Then I’m not sure what I’ll do.
The only thing I know I can do is stand with the President and fight, and hope he makes this a priority. Hope everyone in congress makes this a priority.
In the meantime I’m left wondering how so many Senators and Representatives could care so little about the value of human life that they would rather defend the profit margins of insurance corporations than ensure their constituents are allowed medical care.
Please join me in making Health Care Reform a priority.
