So What If I Can't Afford To Retire, At Least Those Gays Can't Marry

Many companies are dropping their promise of health benefits for future retirees, who now might have to stay on the job longer and rely on government health care in their old age.
Given a clear choice between a challenger promising to increase the number of people with affordable health care in this country by twenty odd million and an incumbent promising medical savings accounts for those who could actually manage to save a few dollars in this crappy economy, 60 million people chose the latter. Well, you certainly get what you pay for. Expect stories like these to increase over the next four years as Bush does jack shit about lowering health care costs for lower and middle class Americans.
