Today, I popped over to Val's awesome blog, Occasional Superheroine. As a girl geek, it is my duty to read her words. :)
Read this to see what it's like for an uninsured person in an emergency room.
That is MESSED UP.
You know, I have rheumatoid arthritis. And no matter how under control my condition is, I still have RA.
What that means is, I will never be insurable by a private insurance plan. I am screwed. I will have to have a job that gives me employer health care for all time.
I can't just go start a business with some employees if I want to. I can't just work freelance and take out a policy for myself and my family.
Even if I am severely wronged at my job, I can't just walk away from it.
I am trapped.
And that is the state of health care in this country.
