============God Bless (?) NPR....
Long show today on....... national health care.......
My opinion --
=== If you think Health Care is expensive now, just wait until its Free. ===
Health care is increasing at double-digit rates, while the ins. companies routinely deny coverage. Oil hit $100 / barrell, with $125/BBL forecast. How does $4+ a gallon sound? Utilities will jump accordingly, as will food costs. Conversely, businesses are outsourcing, or laying off people. Circuit City fired everyone making over $9 per hour and told them they could come back at $8 with no raises, no benefits.
To those in the top, it's uncomfortable. To those making $50K or less, yes, it's going to be a depression.
Groceries are ridiculous! I started going old fashioned like chopping the lettuce myself. You might laugh but it doesn't seem that long ago when that was your only option. someone told me once that you waste your money on the inside aisles. Everything you need is on the outside. Well now EVERYTHING is expensive. I'm italian and I always had a big garden even as a little kid. I'm going to get rid of a portion of my new lawn this spring and go back to gardening. Nothing better than a tomatoe out of the garden. The ones in the store taste like wood!I couldn't believe the price of groceries this weekend. $7.99/lb for heirloom tomatoes-at Safeway! $3.00/lb for apples, a bag of salad was $4.00.
To those making $50k or more, your taxes are going to eat up most of your income.
