Is there a difference between making a ' good living' and making a "PROFIT"? Me? I have nothing against PROFIT per se... depending on the product generating the profit. I do however question the role of profit, especially extreme profits, in the health care industry overall, and I full on resent its role in the private bureaucracies that track the money. The Insurance Industry produces exactly nothing except for profits and paperwork designed to protect those profits, including bought and paid for legislation. Don't look at me in that tone of voice - we all know it's true. What if I could just buy in to Medicare A & B while I'm working, at a rate based on my age? Did you ever stop and wonder WHY insurance companies agreed to Medicare for the old and the disabled in the first place? Since the tax payers are going to be ultimately responsible for my healthcare when I'm old, doesn't it make sense for me to put my "health care dollars"* in to Medicare now? * Health care dollars in the form of insurance premiums paid by me and enhanced by my employer, currently flowing from me to a private bureaucracy at a rate of $400 per month for AVG-WIFE and I, with claims filed since 2008 < $3,000 total. Both of us are facing pretty good health and all we're paying for with our 'health care' investment is a marketing meeting in Aruba. Chumps. Every fucking one of us.
