Why I Was Denied Health Insurance

After months of waiting for my health insurance to be activated, and after paying for it all the while, I was informed recently that I am uninsurable.

What horrible malady might I have? Cancer? Multiple sclerosis? Heart disease? Let’s take a look at the letter they sent. I’m sure that will tell me why.

Oh, yes. I was denied health insurance because of “*”. Seriously? All you people who think the United States of America doesn’t need a major overhaul of its health insurance industry should look at this and think twice.

For no reason I was denied health insurance. Previously they told me they were waiting on the results of an electrocardiography exam I had nearly three years ago. An EKG that came back saying my heart was in perfect condition. Now they tell me because… asterisk. They literally have no reason for their rejection. I have been dealing with them since August with this mind you.

Welcome to America, land of the brave, the free and the uninsured.

Thanks Republicans who did all they could to prevent people like me from getting coverage and the Democrats that let them do it. Tea Party members… Don’t even get me started.

Share your insurance issues, thoughts on reform in the comments.

Keith Olbermann on Healthcare

There’s really nothing I can say to preface Keith Olbermann‘s one-hour “special comment” on the healthcare debate here in America.  It’s honest, frightening and often times brought me close to tears.

This special tells the truth behind the lies of what healthcare reform will bring and exposes what will happen if we don’t get healthcare reform here in America.  The statistics are startling. For instance, if you are without insurance in America, you are 40% more likely to die than someone with insurance.  40% more likely to die.

It’s worth watching, and watching again.

Barney Frank Talks to a Dinning Room Table

At a Barney Frank town hall meeting in Dartmouth, MA, a constituent asks, “Why are you supporting this Nazi policy?”

Frank, an openly gay, Jewish, Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts from  responds: “On what planet do you spend most of your time?” He then calls her approach “vile, contemptible nonsense.” He closes by saying: “Trying to have a conversation with you would be like arguing with a dining room table.”

Glad someone finally said what was really on their mind about this, way to go Barney Frank.  I have a feeling Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri will be the next to open a can of whoop-ass.
