OK, I have been on my computer for several hours now, sitting. That is a health risk in and of itself. Should I be punished by paying to be in a high risk insurance pool because my chronic disease(s) and risk factors are exacerbated from long sit times at work and at home? At work, I am expected to be efficient and productive (I work in a non-traditional health setting). I only get short periods of time for breaks and lunch. I also have genes that add insult to my injury. When there are only so many hours in the day to get tasks (such as reading) done along with the risk factors and chronic diseases, what is a person supposed to do? I do not consider myself as liberal in certain aspects of life, but I do believe that a person needs ready access to quality health services and meaningful education. For those of us who are gifted with the responsibility to serve as proficient health care providers for example, how do we to successfully carry out our purpose in life if we don't have the access to health care and education? I've been witnessing healthcare coming apart at the seams. It's not clear to me that any political party can save it.
