10,000 working parents in Arizona to lose health insurance
Nearly 10,000 working parents will lose their health insurance this month in the wake of state budget cuts, leaving some families with nowhere to turn as they seek affordable coverage.
KidsCare Parents, a program that provides low-income families with inexpensive insurance, will end Sept. 30.
This will brighten the day of Reps, particularly those in the lege and the Governor's office, because they know that some of the parents affected by the budget cuts that ended KidsCare Parents *will* find a way to buy private insurance, even if it means skimping on other expenses (like food, clothing, and shelter, you know, stuff that isn't really necessary).
Those Reps can now look forward to their rewards - campaign contributions and nice pats on the head - from their masters in the corporate health insurance industry.
Masters who have millions of dollars' worth of bonuses and stock options to fund.
