Healthcare Reform Arghhhhh!!!!!
Did you know woman can pay up to 40% more in premiums vs male counterpart?
Did you know that 78% of healthcare plans do not cover maternity care?
Did you know that a number of states consider C-Sections a pre-existing condition?
Sometimes I am Lenny from, "Of Mice and Men"....I met with a Women's group today about healthcare. The lobbyist said to me, "In 8 states domestic violence is considered a pre-existing condition. "
What the Fuck?!?! That just makes me mad to think a woman could be denied service because she was abused.
Man, I was pissed off, "What are the states?"
Lobbyist rattles off the eight states: all in red states.
Me, "Whew! I thought you were going to say my state and I was going to have to punch someone in the Governor's office."
Insert foot in mouth. Beer kills brain cells. Yes, I am that dumb. Ughh.
I apologize to all women.
