Health Care

Today it was difficult to settle on a topic. Ann Coulter just made an outragerous remark against John Edwards, so I could discuss that. But, I was thinking, hasn’t that hateful woman received enough attention? So, I decided to write about another subject: Health Care.

A while back, I contacted the Human Resources department where I work and requested the opportunity to purchase additional coverage — coverage that I was willing to pay for, but since it would be through the company, I could receive at a lower cost. On Tuesday, I received a we’re sorry, but no, along with a lecture on the rising cost of health care and the flexible spending accounts.

Okay, I’m not even going to get into the fact that I understand about flexible spending and it was obvious to me that the woman who answered my email never bothered to see that I put a lot of money into my flexible spending account all ready. What really bothered me was the condescending air that health care is some sort of privilege and I should be grateful that they let me have it.

Excuse me, but I work hard for a living. I give my all at work and I care about the company for which I work. All of this talk lately about health care centers around the fact that somehow in employers’ minds, workers don’t deserve health care. They shouldn’t have to put out the money for the premiums.

Well, that’s just wrong. Health care is a business expense, like the computer on my desk, the paper in the printer and the electricity that lights the building. I give them a honest days work and they give me a honest day’s pay and health care. That’s the deal for which I signed on.

But, it isn’t just the company from whom I work, it’s all of them. Chrysler, Ford, etc. are blaming their financial woes on the high cost of health care (which was cited in the email), which if they made cars we want to buy, they’d make money.

And, it’s the same with other companies. They have these huge payouts for their CEOs, but they don’t want to spend the same amount on the people who are actually making them money. I’m sorry, but you know what gets sugar on the table? It’s not a CEO, it’s the little people who do all the work. And, that’s a fact, Jack.

I know that health care costs have gotten out of hand, but I’m tired of these companies wanting to take away the little in benefits they offer.

God Bless
