The government is talking about making the Federal Reserve bigger (much, much bigger) so it can better regulate the stock market. I hope it doesn’t come to fruition. My personal belief is that making gov’t bigger is seldom the solution. Making it smaller and putting individuals in the position where they have to behave with integrity or suffer the consequenses is.
I’m not sure how to transfer this philosophy to health care. I have many friends and family members who simply go without health care currently and I see how drastically it affects their quality of life. We’re lucky. We have health insurance through Fred’s employer. They recently doulbed the amount they’re taking from our paycheck though and we’re feeling the pinch.
I’ll write more about how we’re feeling the pinch later today or tomorrow.
For today, I’m watching the stock-market. I don’t have stocks, but I think it’s one of the indicators of how our economy is doing. I suspect things will not go well today, one way or the other.
