The Lyrics

We know that it’s a con;
The system is all wrong:
The thieves have all the power.
Healthcare’s sick in the USA.

So Blue [Shield] makes you pay
And pay more each day.
If you don’t feel good, your costs will take flight.
And you know they’re going higher, higher HIGHER!

They are crooks, one and all;
Their prices, never small.
These slimy motherf**kers taking more
Quarters and dimes away.

But Blue makes you pay
Most, at least today.*
If you don’t feel good, your wallet will be light.
And you know they’re going higher, higher HIGHER!

If you happen to fall
And injure your foot’s ball,
Your premiums are gonna go
Up huge amounts today.

’cause Blue makes you pay,
Pay, Pay, Pay Pay,
Takes your purse away,

So, don’t feel bad
(Blue’ll make you pay)
Or you might lose your home
(Blue makes you pay)
The costs never go down
(Screwed every day).

*planning for a rate increase as high as 59% in some cases

You know, pretty soon we're going to be paying "more' for what is being charged, AND NOT EVEN KNOW IT. Healthcare is WAYYYY out of hand. When my Mom passed a few years ago, I went through her paperwork and came up with her hospital bill for having me. Now, grant you it was 1959, but...for and ENTIRE WEEK in the hospital, the bill was $248.00!!!!!!! There's NO WAY things should be escalated to the level it is at today, even after 50 years....(thanks John, for letting me vent...)

Mark: Thanks for letting me vent. The way things are going, only those with jobs/benefits and the wealthy will be able to afford healthcare.
OMR: They all suck as far as I'm concerned, though it's somewhat a matter of degree. It's really 18 to go, as I will explain when I nominally hit 3K.
Diva: We all pay.
