Just As I Thought

Got a “free” flu shot today at Kaiser. But while we are all talking about healthcare today, let me inject some truth: since I haven’t needed to visit Kaiser in 6 months, the cost of this flu shot, in monthly premiums, was $3000. Paid for by my employer. They are incredibly generous in paying for my healthcare; and I sympathize with small companies that simply can’t afford that kind of expense. This fundamental human need shouldn’t be tied to employment. It should be a universal, fundamental part of being an American Citizen. My employer doesn’t have to protect me from crime, fire, or educate my kids. Why do they have to pay for something as fundamental as healthcare?
