Open Season starts next Wednesday. Yup. I’ve warned you for the past two months to make sure that you knew your password and all your information was up to date. Because starting next Wednesday, it’s going to be crunch time.
Circadian rhythm. The 24 (OK, closer to 24.8) hour cycle that governs our lives. It always intrigued me. Mostly because I don’t sleep the “required” number of hours- and wondered if my cycle was off.
This may annoy a whole bunch of you. But, that’s too bad. Because Tom Hayden and 58 other folks made a bold statement 54 years ago. And, while it was changed two years later (when it became far more widely distributed), the direction and observations have tremendous relevance today. Which is the biggest problem with the Port Huron Statement. It should no longer be relevant.
As I’ve reported, the health insurers and our employers have been shifting the health cost burden onto the insured over the past few years. And, now, given that many of the poor are on Medicare or subsidized Obamacare (PPACA) programs, it means that it’s pretty much just the the middle class that is feeling the pain of these cost shifts. (It is such a small amount of money to the rich that the change is not truly noticed by them.)
