I am glad Globe has great insurance. But many people do not. And I am in healthcare and see those who don't everyday. Everyday I have to call insurance companies and beg them to approve a medicine or a procedure. Hey, I am all for saving my patients money. But it's 9 times out of 10, I am saving the insurance company money at the expense of the patient. Some generics are NOT them same as name brand and can have some serious side effects to the patient. Does the greedy insurance company care-hell NO. You need to do some research on the amount of money insurance companies make and what they pay out. You'd be suprised. As far as how much things cost in the medical world, Medicare sets the standard for pricing for EVERY one. Doctors set their prices by what medicare tells them to charge. Same thing for hospitals. What the insurance companies have to work with is plenty. The insurance fat cats like to work that money right into their pockets.Ask anyone in the healthcare field how they feel about insurance companies now and say ten years ago.Everyday they are harder to work with. Everyday I spend hours on the phone fighting to get my patients they care they need. It's almost criminal if you ask me.

After my son paid for his part of his medical insurance premium, he has $11.00 to live on every two weeks. He works long, hard days at a construction firm with plenty of overtime. His great insurance carries a $5,000.00 deductible with no vision or dental.Some deal, huh? Greed is the root of this crisis. If the insurance companies would quit practicing medicine and lining their pockets with record profits maybe that would be a great place to start. But with all those high paid insurance lobbists in Washington, making sure that they maintain business as usual, nothing will change. It's corporate greed at the cost of America's health.

Gee, so glad I posted this regarding Lisa Mondeau. She too was also a wonderful person. Guess you all don't know what happened to her. Sorry about Judy, both she and her husband were great peeps!

Another difference is that the Polish, Irish, Italians, etc. came here legally. They did not drain the school systems, the social programs, the health care systems. They learned English. We didn't cater to them, demanding that we learn their language. I resent having to push 1 for English and 2 for spanish. Both sets of my Grandparents came here thru Ellis Island. They couldn't wait to become American. Learn English was the most important to my Grandparents. They wanted to be an American in every way. That didn't mean they gave up their nationality or their traditions or their native tongue. But in the outside world they spoke English, they had to. Both sets of my Grandparents became very successful in this country withOUT welfare, medicaid or any handouts from our government. They paid taxes, went to church, became productive members of society, they lived as Americans. They did complain then demand everything be handed to them or that America had to change for them. Thats a big difference for me, part of why I resent the 'new immigrants'.

Does anyone know what happened to Lisa? I read of her passing online here. I went to church with her when I lived there and even played a little hockey with her. I am deeply sadened and will pray for her 2 beautiful girls, Emma and Maddie.
