I mean, not that anybody could tell from the title, or anything.
Okay, here’s what set it off-- a quote from a stupid Ehow article talking about the previous situation with pre-existing conditions (emphasis added)
Well, that did it…
I was a caseworker once for a middle-aged couple. The husband was 60 and couldn’t get Medicare. Their insurance company casually handed him a death sentence by refusing to cover his medication because it related to a “pre-existing condition.” That company casually destroyed the entire family. The wife went bankrupt, the adult kids were set up for many, many years of financial devastation by giving all the money they possibly afford (and beyond what they could afford.) it was the most disgustingly cruel thing ever…
The ONLY consolation is that it’s killing insurance companies to not be able to exclude “pre-existing conditions” anymore. NOT because of the money, because they’ll make that up in other ways. No. They are losing that ability to play God, because there’s a way of playing God like no other if all those people can be excluded in that exact way. There’s nothing quite like it, and nothing else can make up for it. The power to hand out life or death like trivial party favors… And it must have been good to play God and yawn while they destroyed people’s lives.
NO MORE. IT IS OVER.
Oh, and it would be nice if those top execs burned in the eternal flames of hell, too.
Too extreme? Not when you’ve watched people die or lose every cent they’ve ever worked for in their entire lives.
