So I've learned that the hospital up here where I work is refusing to negotiate with our insurance company, who is strong arming the hospital.

Basically what this means is starting next month if I'm t-boned by some idiot up here around work and end up going to the hospital I'll owe 100% of the bill, until they can switch to a new insurance company. Lovely. It also means the doctor I just visited a few days ago and happened to actually like probably won't be seeing me anymore. Even better!

Know what? Forget reform. We shouldn't reform, we should nuke the entire system, piss on the ashes and start new.

Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!
