Abbott For Governor

April 24, 2014

I think ALL politicians just care about the people when the election is coming around and the governmental election is no difference. I am voting for Abbott not because he is disabled but because he is the polar opposite of his opponent, Wendy Davis.

Some people say he has changed some programs for the disabled. So? Just because he is in a wheelchair and has a disability he should give an overabundance to the disabled? Giving and spending has gotten us into our current situation.

I saw that instead of giving stickers away, he is charging $10 for one. Come on Abbott no need to be greedy. You already have a 3:1 or more donation margin on Davis.

Fifteen Minutes?

April 9, 2014

I see my neurologist once a year just to get my prescriptions refilled. Nothing more, nothing less. From the beginning years ago, I had six month appointments but my last visit I got it switched to yearly visits.

Based on previous visits I wasn’t looking forward to this one and I rescheduled twice – both later. Anyway, I got there and was out the door with my prescriptions in hand fifteen minutes later. Literally. Oh, and because they don’t take governmental insurance I pay out of pocket – so $130 for 15 minutes. So, they value their “services” at over 500 an hour. Joke.

They used to try and sell me on trying botox or other treatments and I always said no and that I want to just maintain how I am now. At least this time they didn’t try to.

I have written a few blogs on these guys before as well as a business review. Maybe they have seen them? Doubtful. Seems like they have too good of a good thing going to care about the people they are working for.

Health “care” .gov

I don’t know about you, but personally I am tired of seeing people on social media say “Thanks Obama for ObamaCare” or the  ACA. I am all for universal health, but making people pay for it and penalizing them for not signing up  doesn’t make much if any sense.

It is going to make more public practitioners go private  but then what doctor takes governmental insurance anyway? Not many that’s for sure and if they do, its not advertised. Doctors don’t take governmental insurance because the reimbursement is so low.

Private companies can be charged many times more so it leaves people who need to see a doctor more than likely paying out of pocket unless they go to the ER or a clinic.

It’s a joke and has been made a joke of. More older people have signed up and in an effort to make a push Obama has put commercials throughout the NCAA tournament trying to appeal to the younger demographic.

This is a satire of it on this past Saturday’s SNL.

On the last preliminary election ballot there was an option to repeal ObamaCare. It won with 97%. I wonder how it will do in November and what will happen.

There have been a lot of articles, news stories and other things saying why this ”plan” will not only hurt the medical industry but also the economy for years to come.

It is just a step up from Medicaid and that is only because people are paying for it.

It is going to be an endless cycle of revisions depending on who is in office. I just hope they drop the term Obama Care and make the ACA the name. I wouldn’t want Obama on the name of my ”plan”.
