A gentleman posted this receipt to his Facebook page.
It illustrates what he has to pay for his one month supply of insulin.
Three, little vials.
He says he now works a second job so he can afford the insulin.
The real shame in this matter is that he HAS health insurance.
With a major insurer: Blue Cross Blue Shield.
His dilemma is that he has to pay out of pocket up to $7K!
WHAT THE #$@!!!!!!!???
I know very few people who can afford to pay for rent/mortgage, utilities, homeowner's insurance, earthquake insurance, car payments, car maintenance, food AND a monthly, eight-hundred-dollar insulin tab!
MADNESS, I say! MADNESS!
Until we demand that our elected, government officials pay for their own healthcare, they'll never give a damn about ours. As a whole, we, the people, MUST get to the polls and kick out EVERY, SINGLE representative who doesn't do what we want them to do.
Hell, that's how their rich donors do it!
