LifeAfterDx--Diabetes Uncensored

Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

Put the Blue Dogs to sleep

Isn’t that what we do with mad dogs? I’m soooooooooo disgusted with this Congress. If these spineless cowards had been in office in 1776, instead of a Declaration of Independence this country would have had a Memorandum of Dissatisfaction with the King.

So first they took Single Payer off the health care reform table. Didn’t even discuss it. Now, according to the news this morning, they want to remove the public option. And the requirement that big companies provide insurance.

Ummmmmmmmm….. so what’s left to reform?

Are we just going to force financially crippled citizens to purchase the products of the insurance industry, like we do with car insurance?

That doesn’t sound like reform to me.

That sounds like a subsidy.

I certainly agree ... it IS reform (for the insurance industry) as it will add millions to their coffers, which I described in my own blog post on this subject as "corporate welfare".
