Health Care

I'm self-employed. I choose to pay for my own health insurance and it costs me $14,000.00 a year for me, Wifey, and two kids.

Now over the course of said year we might go to the doctor or hospital a few times a year and maybe burn up say $2000.00 a year in actual services. So at end of the year I show a net loss of roughly $12,000.00 a year on health care.

Still awake?

What I'm hoping for is someone in my family (not me) gets some wicked rare illness...maybe a year long coma....some long term treatable cancer....you know...something that will cost a TON of money that my health care will cover.

Just ONCE I want to be ahead of them by a hundred grand or two.

Spud said...

OH NO YOU DON'T! TRUST ME! I would have much rather payed for those two and a half years.

Spud said...

The 14g a year I mean.

comas = good times

Keep paying, nooprah. It would take about 15 minutes in the hospital and a couple of "tests" to put you ahead.

Of course, you know that Democrats get free healthcare, right?

You offer paid healthcare? Cool!

Can I have a job application please? I'm a real go-getter!

(Spud...you know I'm kidding, correct?...now I feel crappy. It's probably Hoagy's fault)

My car has been broken into so many times that for the first five years of ownership, I was ahead of the game in insurance. I had paid about $13K to the insurance company, and they had paid for abuot $15K in repairs.

Then I finally got an alarm installed...Now nobody tries to steal my car, and I'm pissed that I have to pay insurance...

On a lighter note...I just noticed we have bacon and spuds on this blog now.

All we need now are some eggs (I said EGGS, btw, Bacon Ace) and toast and we'll have the fixings for a nice breakfast.

Spud said...

yeah I know you, no problem, don't feel bad. You Know I've got thick potatoe skin. :)

I Ain't No Oprah said...

Hey Spud,
You should probably get that skin checked out. It didn't look so good last time I saw you...

Oh!
Sweet!
Jesus!

Potato with an "e" on the end? Is Spud Dan Quayle?

So, I'm curious about what kind of blog god has...so, I click on the lord's name (not clicking it in vain, mind you), and I end up on Bruce Springsteen's Web site. Who knew god was Bruce Springsteen (god, I guess)?

New Jersey has been telling us this all along.

Oh my god, Spud's last entry just gave me an instant headache...

Bemisdown said...

Thank you spud....

I'm opposed to spelling corrections.

I'll just take an order of French Toast please...I may not be in the mood to eat it, but at least I can SPELL it.

Tough crowd!

bacon ace said...

Oh fer chrissake. It was a Dan Quayle joke more than a spelling correction. I don't give a good god damn how you spell.
