Health Care Costs

I mentioned yesterday when I was posting about the trip to the Bahamas that I like to listen to Clark Howard on the radio. Since I haven’t commuted to work since 2003 I don’t get to listen as much as I used to but I still enjoy it occasionally. I wonder if his show is on the Internet? I may have to check that out.

Anyway, one of the things that I heard about quite a bit on the Clark Howard show was the fact that a lot of people use Canadian pharmacies to get their medicine. There are some gives and takes in our system. Lot’s of Canadians visit the U.S. for their health care because it is so much more advanced and some of the medicines and treatments we have here are not available there, but there are just as many if not more people that use a Canadian Pharmacy to get their medicines because the cost is so much cheaper.

For instance, I take Protonix and Vytorin for my ulcer and my cholesterol. A 30 day supply of Protonix costs me (after insurance costs) somewhere around $50. I can get the same drug from for slightly less than that BEFORE my insurance. I may have to look into some of the mail order stuff and see exactly how much I can save. The biggest thing is that I will need to make sure and get a couple months at a time since it’s mail order and I am bad about running out of the stuff before I renew my prescriptions.

  • This bothers me so much. After hearing the 911 call. Knowing that he is a good father and husband, trying to protect his family. I think the only reason he is not dead is because the cop must be a bad shot. He unloaded his gun on this guy. I just cant believe this story. How horrible he and his wife must have felt. Of course he thought he was dying and to be dragged our bloody and dying for his wife and children to see. I am just sickened by this and had to comment.

  • James Madison, the fourth President of the United States addressing the General Assembly of the State of Virginia said, “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
    This is only the beginning. Americans are in the verge of loosing their civil liberties brought about their shamefully practiced immoralities, introduced and legalized by Presidents, Congressmen, and Supreme Courts Justices, as great virtues, such as Separation of Church and State, Affirmative Action, Forced Busing, Legalized Premeditated Murder on Demand or Abortion, Euthanasia, Sodomy, and Same Sex Marriage.
    America has become the junkyard of the soul, the perpetual night of the living dead, although animated most Americans are nothing more than empty shells calling evil good and good evil, putting darkness for light and light for darkness, and bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Godlessness has produced an unmanageable national debt, the wars in Iraq, and Afghanistan, the uncontrollable invasion of illegal aliens, the devaluation of the dollar, the deliberate dumbing-down of the American mind, and also has produced the rogues occupying the U.S. Congress, the Courts, and the White House. They are all the fruits of SIN, and SIN is the willful disobedience of God’s holy Commandments, punishable by eternal torment in hell.
    Americans have broken faith, and for Americans to return to righteousness would be comparable to the rising of the Titanic, which sadly even if the technology existed to raise it from the seabed, the wreck is far too fragile to withstand lifting, and transportation. In the same way America is too far-gone, America is melting down, and blending forever inside the cauldron of globalization, as prophesied by the prophet Isaiah, “For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined”

  • Wow. I don’t know what’s worse – the incompetence of the police or the fact they’re trying to cover up their mistake and avoid accountability. I don’t think I would want to visit Phoenix let alone move there.
    Phoenix Police – you don’t look very good over this one.
