DW asked in my last post whether I’d be turning in my health care for the government’s program.

The answer: As a freelance writer, I pay $1,200 monthly for insurance—and it’s absolutely dreadful coverage. $30 for a general visit, $50 for a specialist, limitations left and right, up and down, an insanely high deductible for prescriptions.

So, will I be trading it in?

In about three seconds.

I know … I know. Big, bad, scary, evil government will do a terrible job. Probably so. But it can’t be any worse than what’s been instituted by the private, for-profit corporations.

It just can’t.
