This News Kind Of Depressed Me
I’m not really an anti-American on anything, but I am anti-healthcare companies in this country. You guys all know the scorecard because, for the most part, you’re living it with you autie or aspie…or you’ll be personally living it later in life with diabetes or whatever ailment affects you. I’m a big proponent of universal coverage, and I don’t buy the market will take care of itself argument that really was at the heart of the 90s battle on this subject – just look how well the market did with Enron and Worldcom and now the mortgage companies.
So a few years ago, along with just better living reasons, I resolved to get healthier, drop weight and live longer, because the longer I can toil the fields, the better life Demetrius has a chance of having…and ancillary to that is Maya…the longer I can afford to help Demetrius, the better her life will be for not having to care for her brother (in whatever, way, shape or form that may be).
But what if….fill in the blank. What’s his future? What’s his sister’s future based on his? What if I have a stroke and can’t work? What’s this do for Demetrius and Maya’s future? And Kim’s?
When you hear pieces like this about what they do in smaller, and assumed, less robust economies/countries, and then what we have to do in even progressive states like Massachussets, it sends chills down my spine. Do we have it backwards here, at least backwards right here, right now? Really, it makes me think that maybe the Grassos would be better off in another country that good ol’ USA, based off of some of the things I’ve seen, learned, and lived in regards to my special needs child. They speak American in Canada, don’t they?
