Health care
Sigh. Just had an email from my sister, who is in nursing school with a self-employed husband:

"I am preparing to go in for my mammogram next month, which is the only thing my insurance pays for, near as I can tell. I have to go in for a repeat pap smear the week after that, since my last one was abnormal. Insurance won't pay for that. And if I have cancer anywhere, I might as well just die because they don't cover cancer
treatments, unless you pay extra for that for an entire year before you are diagnosed, so it's too late to add that coverage. $8500.00 a year, this costs us. Somebody ought to do something."
