Craig and I live together, work together, and eat the exact same stuff. So I go to the doctor last week, get a great report, and Craig goes yesterday, and his Cholesterol is way high.
So Craig is one of those people whose body makes too much Cholesterol. His whole family is on medication. But he tried a statin(Lipitor) and his liver enzymes went sky high. So now the doctor wants him to try Zetia. It's not suppose to bother the liver as much. But of course, there is no generic version available, so it's $100 a month! ouch! We pay a combined $784 a month for health insurance, and have no prescription coverage!
Checking on the Internet, I find we can get the generic version in Canada for $13 a month! What's wrong with this picture?
Of course, we won't get any one in congress to fix this health mess, they all get free health care for life after serving 5 years!
Again! What's wrong with this picture?
And we wonder why there are so many people with out health insurance. I wonder how much longer we'll be able to afford it the way the premiums go up every year!
Okay....I'm done ranting now...
And no...., I don't feel better.
