    If anyone asked her, she’d throw poo at them and bite.

    That’s not so different from running calls at the Retirement Home.

    So if I want tax subsidized health care, I will have to live like an animal in a cage?

    As long as you have a good home with patient caregivers.

    Maybe that’s what we should do to the insurance carriers and medicine makers. >:D

    OK, here are the facts. If the insurance company knows they have to pay out for pre-existing conditions, they know they have to get that money from somewhere, and the only way is by increasing premiums. In essence, insurance is a common pool, paid in advance, ready to be paid back out as needed. If people decide they really want to pay more out in advance, then OK, but they really need to realize that is what they will be doing, rather than imagine that money magically comes from nowhere.

    Perhaps I’m the only one in the Portland area who didn’t realize until this moment that Jan is an Oregonian. As soon as i saw “Coco the Chimp” it was very clear. Coco is an elderly matron chimp at the Oregon Zoo. Only a local would know that. Heck of a deal. Given the tone of the strip it makes a lot of sense. I love the side-swipe at our ridiculous health care system. And we call ourselves a first world country.

    The solution? Eat healthy meals and exercise. You can get top quality medical advice from the Dr. Oz show on TV, if you can stand him. Other than that the Internet has a wealth of info.

    @Philogia: You might also notice that teh paper in Wally’s hands is the “REG GUARD”. Eugene’s newspaper is the Register-Guard. Jan’s definitely letting us know she’s a local.

    “They say it’s all happening at the zoo, I do believe it, I do believe it’s true. Hmmm…” From Simon and Garfunkel’s At the Zoo.(I wish I knew how to get musical notes on my screen.)

    Insuring a pre-existing condition is like a homeowner who chooses not to buy fire insurance, then calls the insurance co to sell him that insurance only when his house is on fire. Liberals have managed to destroy the meaning of the word “insurance.”
