Mrbogey: Johnny_Whistle: Except come up with any kind of alternative, you mean.

Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Oh, right, I forgot about "'Mericans For Emergency Rooms (MFERs, for short)."

DarnoKonrad: pueblonative: she's a lot more successful than the article leads me to believe.

Americans really hate admitting there are classes in our society, which is why even people making 6 figures a year like to pretend they're hard workin' Joe six packs just barely scrapin' by, rather than privileged elites.  The people who can't even afford a six pack are too busy worrying about keeping the lights on to even bother romanticizing their lot in life.

Most people making 6 figures a year are hard working Joe six packs. Are they better off than somebody making $40,000? Of course, but it is usually by a factor of nicer things, e.g. the new car instead of the sued car, the nicer house instead of the apartment, the dinner out at Olive Garden instead of McDonald's. Six figures doesn't remotely make you privileged elite until you start creeping up into high six figures.

Karac: The most pressing reason? A coworker who's only a year or two older than me (and frankly, in much better general health than I am) got kidney stones two or three months ago. He was in the hospital one night on painkillers. His wife's a nurse at the hospital, so he only got something like a $500 bill ... a considerable drop from the original $20,000.

That's impossible. I've been told that people never have unexpected health problems.  Obviously you should have paid the penalty and then biatched about getting a huge medical bill when something bad happens.

Her son has "ADHD" and she is working on some tendonitis, so if they're not both collecting about $1,200/month on disability, they soon will be.  And Medicare is "free"!  So everything is working out just fine for this Obama voter.
