And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America
Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.
Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.
Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.
But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?
Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.
Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crocks is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!
This is absolutely ridiculous.
I live in New Zealand. My mum had a heart attack when I was 13, she was in hospital for at least 3 months and our government pays for most of our bills so I think my parents only had to pay around about $500 - 1k. With the option to pay it over a period of time.
Like????? Does the America government even give the slightest fuck about the people that live in their country???? Honestly.
No. They don’t.
Been sifting through tracks lately when I’m on my downtime. Sometimes I just sit on my arse at the end of the day and let the music blast while I contemplate on the complex layers of sound being thrown at me. I am usually sitting and reminiscing about Low End Theory when beats like these get put on
These beats… have a tangible feeling that accompanies them, I’m sure other LET regulars / ex regulars could agree with that.
A familiar feeling came to me every night I spent there, in 2010 I’d take the 101 back to Silver Lake after the shows and feel rediscovered driving home on those semi empty streets at 2ish in the AM. Feeling a bit dazed and readjusted in my dome.
The bar is always being set, and reset, and then swallowed whole by a beast only to be swallowed alive by another much larger beast. The layers of sound just become more and more complex. The healthy competition between artists creates different styles that breed different styles. Your independent artist is the lifeblood of what keeps music gold these days. Then you have your heavy hitters… Your mystery guests who the LA beat music faithful are attuned to.
This is an old track but I just heard it tonight, literally there is just too much to this material and you will never be able to cover it’s broad spectrum unless you literally dedicate your life to it.
Keep your ears open .
