As a public school teacher, Mrs. M’s insurance (which covers the Spawn as well) is the package that goes to state employees. It’s a BlueCross/BlueShield product (as is my insurance through the college.)
Well, guess what? Our local NBC affiliate reports that state employees (and quite possibly Your Genial Host) are about to get a jolt, to the order of a 41% hike for individual plans and a 32% boost for family plans. How come? Guess.
Hope. Change. Obama.
