Circling the Drain
I hsve been retired since 1990 from the Eastman Kodak Company. We received free healthcare, life insurance and dental benefits. Last week Kodak went into bankruptcy and we will lose all our benefits.
I am diabetic, twice cancer, and heart trouble. I have become a cash cow for the medical community with the $40 co-pays for doctors visits and high medicine co-pays.
Preventive medicine has now become nothing but a paycheck for the healthcare community. The tests have become too frequent and in the end unnecessary. No illness is researched for a cure, only to sell more medicine. When is the last time anyone has heard of a cure to any illness?
I only forsee all my retirement money going to feed the healthcare community.
