McCain's radical plan to gut employer-based health coverage

Ahh yes. Gut employer health coverage which does work for 200 million people or so and replace it with medical savings accounts that will not do anyone but the upper middle class or better much good -- and assume that no one in the family ever gets something super expensive (cancer, etc.) before you've worked 20-30 years to have enough in the account to cover much of it.

Of all the idiotic things that man has ever said this one takes the cake.  And the sad thing is that most Americans probably wouldn't notice this.

You're right.  I sort of noticed it, but not really.

Many of you might not like what I'm going to say but here goes- I'm currently on ssi and would like to go back to work

but I'm deathly afraid of them taking away my health insurance do to the fact that I am on many meds and couldn't
 
afford the payments or the copays, besides it's hard for a normal person to get a good job why would they want to

 hire me. It's heartbreaking because I would like to have a career,instead of sitting home depressed.

That's not hard to understand at all. If work can't pay for your basic needs (and expensive medicine is a basic need if it is needed to keep you alive) then you really can't work.  And if employers don't want to hire anyone who isn't in great health because sick people use sick leave and the like then getting a job may not even be a real option.

Now that's just sad.  Especially since most conservatives are the first to say that we're spending too much on social programs like SSDI.  Yet our policies are putting so many of us in a place where we are forced to use it, even when we're capable of working.   Undecided

Sigh.
