I’m just thinking ….
- There is a woman in San Diego Country with some serious health issues. Her Cobra insurance will run out soon (divorce thing). She “will marry for insurance”. For Cobra newbies, it isn’t free insurance at all – if you have Cobra, you pay monthly just like any other joe. It often becomes prohibitively expensive and it does have a time limit, which varies from state to state. So, she’s going to lose her insurance soon. I have two ideas here. First, start looking for new insurance. I did and have had my policy for a year. I don’t have serious health issues so it was easier. Health insurance in this country is FAR-FETCHY. My second “solution” to her insurance problem is … the Super Bowl. Advertisers spend grillions of dollars on … a football game? What if just one of these companies, with $$$$$ for advertising, took just a tiny percent of their budget and anonymously bought this woman some insurance?
The thought of this woman auctioning herself off to get health care is insane. Hopefully, her motive for doing so is not to marry any old breather with insurance, but to attract find someone who will give her coverage for free.
*Note to woman: if you find “free” insurance – let me know. Also, don’t bet the farm on Super Bowl donation; it’s FOOTBALL, for goodness’ sake.
