Too close to reality.

My sister and I were talking today about the giant gaps in our health insurance. We both have spouses with asthma. The inhalers they need are not covered by insurance and cost us around $200 a month.

We can afford that. It’s not throw away money for us, but it isn’t belt tightening either. But if we hadn’t both been able to earn more than most of this cruel country can, our spouses would have to choose between food and breathing.

It’s disgusting.
