I’ve been an independent contractor for the past year, and my boyfriend’s been unemployed. So I’ve been getting acquainted with the intricacies of the US health care system outside of employer-provided care, the universe affectionately known as the Wild West. Firsthand familiarity led me to seek a bit more policy familiarity – reading some books and think tank reports, following the health reform battle as it wends its way through Congress. And I’ve been itching for a while to create something that I hadn’t been able to find – a stark, straightforward overview of why health reform is happening and where it’s heading.
This week, when the hysteria seemed to reach a fever pitch, seemed like the right time to get this project done. So starting Tuesday night, I put together a quick little site, on the order of The Money Meltdown: DeathPanels.org.
Hope you enjoy it. Please send it to your crazy grandpa.
