08/24/2005 Entry: "Deep-fried Twinkies. And deep-fried Snickers. And deep-fried Oreos."

"Collectively, we’re getting fatter. Then fatter and fatter. Over the past decade, rates for being overweight and obese increased by 12 and 70 percent. At the county fair, I saw a booth that sold deep-fried Twinkies. And deep-fried Snickers. And deep-fried Oreos. No lie."
Health Insurance for the Hale. My health insurance hell is other people, by Katie McKy, Raw Story, August 24, 2005

Deep-fried Twinkies. And deep-fried Snickers. And deep-fried Oreos.

AAAAAAAAUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!

Well, most of the healthcare cost crisis is plain old greed, bloated administration, and not enough prevention at the basic health level for the poor. But, you know, she's got a point. Until we have UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE, and the unfit and unlucky have triaged themselves from society, heath insurance costs should be somewhat like the good driver discount I get on my auto policy.

And the fact that we don't have UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE in this country is a failure of will, and the triumph of fear and greed, and nothing else.
