Health Careless 1

Report from the field:

Only two of the woman had Health Insurance through the company. The other eight women have health insurance elsewhere (S-CHIP or other family plans).

Two women were laid off today – the only two with health insurance. When my wife asked why she was being laid off, the reply was quick, “Because you and her have health insurance and I must reduce costs.”

    Better get used to it. It will happen more & more.

    What floors me though, is the fact everyone seems concentrated on the people who are losing their insurance by losing their jobs, but seem to have forgotten the 47 mil who didn’t have any to begin with.

    There are people who, if they can’t get health insurance, they get life insurance. Pathetic.
