Retired Health Care professional. One sad story after another.

Political Views


It just depends on what we are talking about. Born and Raised a Republican but over 40 years working in our health care system. I've come to the conclusion that the GOP stands for Get the Old People and became, for all practical purposes, a Democrat. It has been a small pleasure to see how conflicted Republicans get when they have a devastating injury or illness. No job, no career, capped their major medical, can't pay the Cobra or the house/Lexus payment, the spouse filed for divorce. They file for disability and automatically get turned down on the first application like everyone else and when he gets it, the first check is at least 6 months and Medicare 2 years away. They have to cash in their 401 paying the penalty and income tax. "Somebody should help me!" and they wind up on Medicaid and SSI. Life as they knew it is gone forever. Welcome to the real world....
