Health Care

I just added a poll for the new Health Care plan. I'm curious to know what you think. I think it might be a  good thing for us baby-boomers in our late 60's and 70's. But I want to cry when I think about what it will do to our children's and grandchildren's future expenses.

As an online seller for so many years, I've been in contact with a few other sellers from Canada. Health Care has come up often. Though we knew it wasn't feasible since we were considered "contract workers," rather than employees, we'd hoped for a health care option from Ebay. So we  discussed health care, often, and wondered what to do about the lack of it on a regular basis. And really, the sellers from Canada (who already have a national health care system) did not fare well, from the discussions I heard. They were forced to wait many months for doctor's appointments and tests. Some catastrophic consequences resulted from those long waits, we learned from reading the Ebay forums and sharing information with our fellow sellers from Canada. Very sad.

Guess our own National Health Care will be a wait and see for now...
