Do I want it?
I don't know.
I think healthcare reform is the answer, not free health care to the country.
I think of it this way. Michael and I had Tyler, a wonderful gift from God, but a surprise. We weren't prepared. We weren't prepared for $195 a week in childcare and the $550 a month for family health care. Yes, we made good money, but good money wasn't enough for us, but too much for the system to help us out.
We got by, but there are others that don't.
Now our healthcare has climbed around $600, and daycare around $1900 a month. The mortgage is high, going higher, and the everyday bills pile up.
Some relief would be nice. $600 in healthcare $60 in dental and $60 in vision. So $720 a month just for health.
Then we have a deductible of $2300 per person $5000 max in the house.
What are the high premiums for then... so we can choose our doctor. So we can choose the specialist our child sees, so we have the freedom of a second opinion or third if we choose.
Healthcare reform. Lower premiums and the freedom to choose.
Obama's plan is not offering both.
I wish my canadian folks were here to tell me how it works there.
