I just paid off my hospital bills from my broken ankle back in January so the EF fund is depleted. I'll probably take the lesser paying job since opportunities around here are slim. In the meantime, thank God for the food storage I've built up. The chickens are laying and the goats are back in milk, so at least we'll eat. I won't be buying anything anytime soon however, so the economy will suffer one less consumer.
    I am so Sorry Sue.
    You are not alone we are all in this together.
    We will all get through this time and come out stronger than ever.

    hang in there everybody.....you know one thing i have noticed with the news...and i didn't watch it for awhile there coz of all the 'constant' doom & gloom....is that they have shifted focus and in addition to back to reporting all the 'other crap' they were so good at...(before the recession/depression whatever you are calling it)....they are now spending the time they were trying to 'scare' us all with and filling it with frugal people, tips & ideas on how to save, cut back, re-use....and other 'useful' tidbits....maybe we ARE seeing a shift in mentality with them after all.....
    doubt it though...probably everyone else turned them off too...and they had to come up with something to get us to start watching again.... whatever the reason...i'm glad they moving in another direction...

    I've read President Obama's healthcare plan, I don't see socialism. It's not government run healthcare the best I can make out.

    Here's a link to the FAQ's page: http://www.barackobama.com/pdf/Obama...lthcareFAQ.pdf

If you want to die you will love Canada care and England care. I have heard horrible things about Spain care and Russian care .. We also have a sue happy society so I figure our care will be even worse than those other countries as the lower payments will probably close most of the private hospitals, because we let anyone that crosses the border use our health care and take dollars away from the ones that actually may have a health plan. California alone spends 10 billion a year on illegal immigrants. My husband is from Singapore another socialist country and even there- where you can't sue and it is very controlled people still pay to go to private hospitals as the care is better. I haven't heard of a great health care anywhere in the world. USA has the best. The Saudi Royal family comes here-I am sure they have enough money to go anywhere in the world.If the government takes over it will be like our county system here in Los Angeles where people call 911 inside the ER and die as the wait is so long. Google- Los Angeles County Martin Luther King Hospital and see what you get. It was shut down by the government as the care was so BAD. They are just attempting to reopen it. Those countries are great if you never get sick. If you like to Que up then yeah you may like it. They may actually control their borders or ask for ID before they dispense free health care, It won't work here in the US.
    As someone who lived in the UK and still has family and saw what recently happend to my elderly uncle who just passed from cancer there I can tell you that your absolutely correct about the "Socialized Medicine". Pay no attention to those who will try to tell you otherwise for they may have alteria motives. I'd like one of them to finally admit exactly how much they are paying in TAXES to their Nanny Govt for things they think they are getting from the Govt. for Free. I can tell you they pay a heck of a lot more than we do Nothing in life is for "free". NOTHING.
