Hey to all you right wing free marketeers out there. I am 61 years old and I just received

notice from my insurer, Anthem Blue Cross that my insurance just went up 25% or$91.00
from $356.00 per month to $462. I live in Cali. and have been with them for 20 years and have
used them twice for minor surgeries. 25% I am just out of my mind right now and feel
helpless. Needless to say $1,100 a year is just a kick in the guts! I am unemployed to boot!

Any suggestions?

2. UNEMPLOYED MEAN MEDI-CAL

 

The state should be able to provide medical service.

We just have a few more months to go and then millions of people will be provide insurance. I am not one of these people since this guy who is retired makes to much money. I plan to buy some nice insurance when the time is right.

4. Unfortunately, ask anyone who is over 50 who purchases insurance through a private co.

about nice insurance. Its all an absolute rip-off!
And believe me if anything serious happens, god forbid, you'll find out exactly how
horrible the for profit insurance companies are!

3. This should be handled at the Legislature

 

Since we got a supermajority, all we have to do is vote single-Cal-payer and essentially make health care no cost to anyone impoverished or retired with no money. It can be payed for with a wealth tax, which essentially obtains fees from people with extravagant wealth, even if they have no income or gains. We have far more than enough to cover everyone. Contact your legislator and make this happen (though I already know it will be introduced).
