HMO”s

August 13, 2009

The inventor, the father if you will, of HMO’s, the one and only Ted Kennedy is now appalled by his own creation. That’s right, back in 1973 Sir Ted authored legislation (yes he actually did used to do things) that led to HMO’s as we now know them.

Now don’t get me wrong, if you’re a hypochondriac and you are in good health, you can’t go wrong with an HMO. They will give you all the BS tests and check ups you want to “maintain” your health, but if you actually have a problem, well, sucks to be you. They’ll send you down the road quicker than a union worker who doesn’t want to work today will send a product down the line uncompleted.

But back to my point. It seems odd that Sir Ted would have a problem with HMO’s since he and Chairman Zero are trying to set up a giant one. I don’t know what it is because no one has reported it and I’m unable to find any information anywhere. What I do know is that I heard it on the radio about a week ago (I believe on the Rush Limbaugh Show) that he was attacking HMO’s and I have heard nothing since. Things like this gnaw at me and make me look for something behind the headline but I’m finding nothing. Nothing in front, nothing behind, nothing. Rush doesn’t usually report nothing. Can anyone help me with this? Keep your eyes and ears open.
