17. Thanks. I wish I had known that when I saw the blurb he wrote.
I'm sure some other wingers made comments along his lines. Now I'll know how to answer them.

Good to hear your wife is OK. Sounds like excellent care to me.

Of course, here you can have great health care as long as you can pay for it. I'm one of the lucky ones. My husband belongs to AFSCME and works for the city of New Haven. While he doesn't make a pile of dough, his union fights like hell for great health care benefits. Even tho I am old enough for Medicare part B, I declined it because I can partake of his health care benefits for only $74 a month and that includes dental and some prescription coverage. I don't know what I'll do when he retires, tho...
