Letter about Greg Davids survey


Fri, Mar 8th, 2013
Posted in Rushford Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

One of the questions that Greg Davids brought up in his questionnaire was to put a 3.5 percent tax on our insurance premiums. I don’t know about anyone else, but my insurance premiums are a huge chunk out of our check already. Health care is our biggest expense.

My husband is on Medicare but we still have to pay $100 up front and another $100 for the supplement and another $50. for his prescription insurance. I have to pay $258 a month for my health insurance and I have to come up with $10,000 for a deductible. Now add in our house insurance and car and truck insurance which is another $200 + and there isn’t much left after the check.

I checked and found that $73 billion dollars is lost by hospitals each year by people that don’t have insurance. This amount is tacked on to us that already have insurance.

I have to be really ill to go to the doctor because I can’t afford to go, then I hear from a friend that their daughter took her daughter to the emergency room instead of urgent care because she didn’t want to pay the $7 co pay.

When I worked at Sauer a few years ago, a couple of kids said that they only have to pay $6 a month for their Minnesota care.

Now, I feel that if the average senior citizen that makes about $900 a month on Social Security has to pay $100 a month for health care, and there is no choice then the people on the Affordable Care should be able to come up with that too. I remember working 2 jobs and so did my husband to make ends meet some months and we got no help from government.

There is billions given to the health care system and our health care is going in the toilet. Maybe our legislators should stop favoring all the lobbyists and start doing their job instead of thinking that we should just add another tax to the already taxed to death people of our country.
