Tawnee, you are upset that Obamacare is costing you big. First, I really rely on the podcast for good advice and entertainment when running or biking. But I was stopped short by the not so subtle complaint. So I wondered. What level of coverage did you have before relative to now? And a couple of questions: Do you accept that you should pay as a “healthy” 20 something to balance out geezer risk and/or the eventuality that a high fat diet or genetics would result in some form of cancer or an accident requiring more than stitches? Would you be willing to accept the risk of superficial coverage and just use welfare if you had a catastrophe?
Super interesting as always with the Mafter.
Re: healthcare. a healthy trail runner will cost the healthcare system when they break a leg sliding down a cliff, a sedentary person will cost the system by needing care that was preventable in a different way. we all ‘cost’ the system, eventually.
