So, daughter #3 was up in CT, no insurance, moved back. Cannot get on Obamacare. She has no insurance. We can get something till open enrollment (wtf is that about???!!?!?! :x ).

Problem is she need Vyvance. Oh yes, she does. Preexisting condition so the stopgap insurance would not cover it.

So ...... Hellllllllllo Canada.

Anybody have any experience buying from up north?

What crap. I mean really. Talk about bureaucracy writ large.

Nope. Don't need drugs here. They're nice, but .... don't need them.


Yet.

There's enough blame to go around, so Obama doesn't get off the hook.

But the one who is really to blame is Harry Truman for not fixing the market distortion brought about as a side effect of WWII.

Or else it's Ike's fault, because Harry had to deal with Henry Wallace and Earl Browder calling for UK style socialized medicine,
but Ike could have used his prestige to get something passed.

"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray
