Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

Ya'll are some heartless...

I can only hope and pray that none of you are ever in a position where you have to RELAY on the government when your HARDED earned money runs out.

People should not have to make the choice between medical care and food, they just shouldn't.

  • I agree. and I've done it. I always chose food :P
  • Toosdai, didn't you know that it is NOT a basic right?  Who cares if a Walmart worker gets sick?  That's what they deserve for working at Walmart and living off the government.

    Confused

  • Seriously... I'm so disgusted at some (or mainly just one or two) or these people.

    I work at a pharmacy, and I see the looks on some of the people's faces when they hear the prices of their meds, and tell me that they will have to wait for the blood pressure meds or insulin or whatever, because they can't afford it this time.

    F-cking awful.  And most of these people are elderly.  Or they can't afford to make their COBRA payments.

    If I saw her type that word instead of RELY one more time I was going to burst a blood vessel!!!

    Yep.  I'm choosing food right now.  I wouldn't be able to afford groceries or rent if I had insurance.  DH's job sucks and they don't cover spouses.  They don't cover kids either... we're lucky we can pay completely out of pocket for his premium.

    We're working on that in our household.  Are you offering one?  Because that would be swell.

  • The whole thing is so sad to me.  :(  Even if my taxes doubled, we'd still be paying less than we currently do now for healthcare per year.  We are SO FORTUNATE to be able to afford good insurance to keep us well. 

    My brother (who is severely delayed) has a job working at a local grocery store.  After a year of working there they finally gave him insurance.  It has a lifetime cap of $100,000.  He broke his ankle this year, needed surgery, and after a number of complications, he is close to reaching his lifetime cap.  This is no way to treat a human being.  My parents are paying more than their mortgage payment was to insure themselves and my younger sister in college.  My brother doesn't make enough money to pay for extra private insurance, and my parents can't afford more than they already have either.  Watching it all go down horrifies me and he IS insured.

    I know many of us have stories like this and worse...I just have to believe that we have to be optimistic that the new bill will be better than what is currently taking place.

  • Yes, the short-sightedness of some people kills me. I guess they have no idea how fast their "hard earned dollas" will run out if they are struck with a devastating illness in the household. Much less one that may require one of the income-earners to stay home and care for the sick!

     

  • There is a family that lives in my area who lost their DD to brain cancer last spring. She fought hard for 3 years and her parents had some health insurance but it wasn't enough and a lot of the treatments weren't covered. So now the hospital, doctors, labs, etc. have been coming after them for $$$ and they are now going to lose their house. Nice! They did everything right, gave their child the best care and now they will have lost not only her but everything they ever worked for. Disgusting!

    Not sure what I missed but my SIL is a pharmacist and I recently had a convo with her regarding this. I don't know how she does it.

    I recently stood behind a very old man at Walgreens pharmacy. He was picking up his wifes meds. $241 for the smallest bottle of whatever she needed. I swear he looked like he was going to either cry or have a heart attack right there. I am pretty sure he was writting a bad check just to bring his wife home his meds. I kid you not when I left in tears. If I had the money floating around to give him for it. So sad.

  • I'm really astounded, although not surprised, that people can be so incredibly selfish and self-centered.  I hope no one ever pulls the rug from under their feet.  What a bunch of egotistical snots.

  • I wonder if some of these nesties 'hard earned' healthcare is being used to buy the diet pills they were on here raving about last night. Healthcare should be used for that, for them, but not for the Walmart cart pusher with seizures? I seiously can not wrap my head around that ideology.

    It's awful.  I came home in tears one night because there were about three different occasions where people couldn't afford their prescriptions.

    In one of the cases, the elderly man left his own medications, and picked up the meds for his wife.  He said that she needed them more than he did.

    I looked at the meds, and I'm guessing that he needed them pretty badly too, as they weren't the kind that you can just take on and off.

    Which one is it? Ou? She's blinded by her Republican sensibilities (or should I say insensibilities?!) so I don't think she is truly BSC.

    I might have to send an eskimo to Lanie's igloo to see what her thoughts are on these posts.

    Stories like that seriously make me sick.  But I guess according to some, they should have worked harder?  Or their daughter didn't have the right to live?  Heart breaking.

    I'm sorry, but that sounds truly BSC to me.

    Exactly what I said.  Luckily, she didn't have to use her insurance to get the doctor's visit.  Her totally qualified and not irresponsible at all doctor friend gave her the script.  

    Wish I had a doctor friend to write me prescriptions for my asthma meds after I drunkenly cry about it.

    Are you f*cking kidding me? Who the f*ck are you? I work my ass off. I have to work 2nd shift because with only one income, I can't afford traditional childcare and I most certainly cannot afford healthcare for myself and 3 children. I have to rely on Medicaid to insure us, including 2 sons that are asthmatic. If it weren't for Medicaid, I would be forced to choose between food and insurance. How do you make that choice knowing that either one would adversely affect the health of your children? Do I not feed my kids and let them starve or do I not have healthcare and risk one of my sons DYING because I can't afford his asthma meds. F*ck off.

  • Wow. That was a lot to take in! Everyone deserves to have good, affordable healthcare...and they should be able to afford their meds. I feel for those who cannot pay for their medication. Something needs to be done...and for the big companies it will have to be done by the government. Why do the same exact meds cost so much more here than in other countries? The healthcare industry is taking advantage of people.

    I agree with you here.  Something needs to be done. I am on the fence about it all.  I haven't done my research about this new bill.

  • Yeah I have to say that reading that thread depressed me. I think that reasonable people can have differing opinions about the government's role in health care. I also think it takes a heart of ice to say that you don't want to pay extra to help a "Walmart cart pusher" have basic medical needs taken care of.

    I'd like to stab someone with a piece of ice right now. 

  • Actually, Toos, I hope and pray the opposite of what you pray.
