Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Kafka's Health Insurance Company

Be happy over there in Europe where you still get something.  My latest story about the exponentially accellerating decay of everything in America relates to health insurance or rather the illusion that a company can present itself as a health insurer and get away with it.

Today the benefit denial came in the mail for my wife, who is covered yet they say she is not.  They surely are taking the premium out of my paycheck.

Now the real scam comes in the form of government mandated health insurance.   This is new for mAssachusetts residents and most out our presidential selectees are coming up with similar proposals for the entire nation.

OK fine.  I'll simply stop going to the doctors.  I'll stop taking prescribed meds X,Y and Z therefore failing my patriotic duty in supporting big pharma.  That way I will relieve myself of the blood pressure piss-offedness of wasting a hour in a phone tree Hell only to be told "The company will review it in 15 days".  Homeopathic medicine here I come!

I guess under de-regulation Guido's Health Care must be affiliated with attourneys Dewy, Cheatem and How.
