We ended up buying a continuous glucose Monitor. So we are paying for medical care with our taxes, with reduced Social Security and now, to get good care and information, WE ARE SPENDING OUR OWN MONEY.

I can document that ACA health insurance is costing me 6x what our previous insurance cost. And one must remember that reducing Social Security payments is another way to pay for Medicare. Ours is down something like 25%. Remember we paid into FICA, by payroll taxes, our whole working lives.

This is part of why I do not think government offers solutions, it offers a chance for bureaucrats to solidify their take.
