My Obamacare story
It all started last month when I had my monthly check-up for cholesterol. My Doctor gives me two prescription slips instead of the usual one. Now we all now, Enquiring minds want to know, so I ask. Ah....what's this? Well, the long and short of the conversation is, the normal "combo" drug I take for my cholesterol is no longer available after November 1. Seems one of the drugs in it has a 5% higher rate of causing something else in my system. So no more "combo" drug. Now I have two "scripts instead of one and of course I could be 5% less likely to get something else I might get. Make sense to me.
Only one little problem. I get my scripts mail order. I just went from one to two scripts. I just went from $50.00 copay to $100.00 copay per 3 months. As they say in NASCAR, "Do the math Darrel". I just went from $200.00 per year $400.00 per year in Copays. Now ya'al help me out but....but... but didn't my health care cost just go UP by $200.00? Some liberal, Obama supporter, please get back to me on this as I thought my health care was going to go down under this program.
BUT WAIT! Like any good commercial there's more, much, much more!!
Last month I went to the drug store to pick up a cheap generic script that normally cost me 80 cents for 30 days. That's right an old drug that cost me 80 cents. My good friend Janet took me to the drug store after getting out of the hospital since I can't drive to get a re-fill and this month guess what! It now has a $10.00 Copay! Now admittedly I get a 3 month supply for my $10.00 and not a paltry 30 day supply for 80 cents. So I seem to have saved here by only one trip every 3 months to the drug store. And since it is sooo far away, like less than a mile, I might actually break even on this deal.
Oh please give me more Obamacare. I can't stand the thought of not saving all this money! Folks if I didn't hurt so bad right now I'd cry.
I would also like to add a little footnote. Now is time to be vetting our Conservative Presidential candidates. This does not mean for the candidates to make personal attacks on each other. I am very saddened by the personal attacks that Ms. Bachman and Mr. Gingrich have be doing since the last Republican debate. If you support either one of these candidates let them know this is wrong. Now is the time for them to tell us, the American people, how they plan to fix this mess. Calling each other liars and harping on TV with year old documents that may or may not lead to a problem being solved is ineffectual and only gives the liberals ammunition for the upcoming Presidential election.
This is not to say I am or am not supporting either of these candidates. Frankly I haven't made up my mind.
God Bless America, please.
