I do have insurance, work full time, have for all of my adult life. And, I can’t afford the care of my own freaking teeth!! Whether you have insurance or not, it is a fortune. The health care industry is in crisis, never in older generations did people have to pay so much for health and dental insurance and STILL have to pay a fortune out of pocket and for prescriptions that are expensive. Its what happens when something as important as health care is left to the wolves of capitalism, as is the way of so many of our systems over the last few generations. I would give anything for SOCIALIZED HEALTH AND DENTAL CARE RIGHT NOW. We live in a world where we have to be insured for everything – this is progress?!?!
Have a nice day – and by the way – we were all immigrants to this country unless you are a native american, which I’m guessing you’re not.
