The Bad News: You Ain't Got Insurance, You Ain't Wealthy, You Ain't Going to Get It
For an illustration of the idiocy in America's health care system the story of low dose aspirin and prescription drugs is a vital lesson. Low dose aspirin costs about 50 cents a month and is very effective at preventing blood clots that cause all sorts of health problems. But a prescription drug is much better, per report in the WSJ.
So what's the problem? Well the prescription drug costs about $5,000 a year. Oh. That. One can just imagine how giddy Trump and Ryan are that millions of Americans could lose health insurance coverage that reduces that cost to a manageable level.
