overstated?

the juice-ette says that perhaps I over-reached a bit with my UnitedHealth — death panels comment.

Maybe so.

I do think it’s preposterous that a private company could theoretically hold in its hands an essential life-saving vaccine and then decide whether or not they were going to offer it to people that have their “health insurance”.

just another reason, in my mind, that health care is a right, not a privilege of the rich, and that decisions such as this should be in the hands of our “by the people, of the people and for the people” government, and NOT some private corporation.

  1. You arent wrong. My company, which is rather large is offering Tamiflu for $100 dosage, that is after their pay it in.

    I am also getting the swine flu shot as well as seasonal in October (those are free, tax season and all).

    Can you imagine what the cost of Tamiflu costs if you dont have a company subsidizing it?

    Fortunately I get another prescription even if I do not get it and someone in my family does.
