Everybody should buy Health Insurance

I’m buying health insurance, yay!  Which means I’m buying Obamacare, yay!  Which is called Covered California in California, yay!

Now, everyone should buy health insurance.  The cheapest plan is $1.34/month.  That’s right, a dollar and 34 cents per month.  Basically that insurance makes you pay for every doctor/hospital visit and prescription up to $5,000 a year.  After that, insurance covers it.  So if you’re a healthy young adult who never gets sick, this is the plan for you.  Because in case you’re riding your bike to work one day and somebody hits you with their car because drivers never look for bicyclists, your insurance will cover your 3 broken ribs, stapling your skull back together, the ICU and all that morphine that’ll be pumped in to you.  Sure, you have to pay $5,000 which you may or may not have; but you can take out a loan from a bank or better yet and if you have bad credit, set up a payment plan to pay that back.  Sure 5k is a lot, but not as much as paying $475/month which is what my employer wants me to pay, which is why I’m going to Covered Cali.

Granted, I’m paying $74 a month for health insurance because I want my yearly checkup and 2 Urgent Care visits and prescription antibiotics covered, but seriously, everyone should have health insurance.  There’s no reason not to, especially when you’re paying pocket change per month.

Creating a password for a CoveredCalifornia account is ridiculous. It has to start with a letter, there has to be atleast 1 capital, 1 number, and 1 symbol. It cannot be a word from the dictionary, and it has to be over 8 letters. So basically you have to go wiEuf&(8kfdo on your keyboard to create a password. And then you have to confirm that password and re-type it as if you didn’t just smash your face in to your keyboard and hope the password is accepted.

I have the flu and I need movies to watch

irrationalliberal:

I’m home sick and need movies to watch.  I only have Netflix but I can rip stuff from the internet if I can find it.  I prefer action and scifi; I’m ok with political movies but don’t want anything too serious, which most of them are.  Any suggestions?

Update: it’s just a cold. But I’m totally going to get a sinus infection from it, damn.

Liberals, you want to send those evil employees who would dare work at a fast food joint then ya just don’t believe in, thought you wanted to, I dunno, send them to Purgatory or somethin’ so they all go vegan? — Former Governor Sarah Palin, in a bizzare video statement response to Elizabeth Warren’s call to raise wages for fast food workers… (via msnbc)

One-two-punch

As if having my masters degree and unable to find a job, and now having to pay back my student loans, and losing my health insurance isn’t enough… my birthday is this week and I’m getting sick.  Way to put the icing on the crap cake.
