    As I recall; you made cash arrangements, had the procedure done and paid it out right, only to receive another bill you had to dispute.

    Yup! You have to visit to understand it. Or grow up around it or live there. Some of those streets are beyond steep. They laugh at 8% grades. I bet people blow equipment motors from oil starvation on some of them.

    I think 1987 is when they went to fuel injection in the Ford trucks. My 1988 F150 was a fuel injected 302, second year of that technology and it couldn't pull a greasy string out of a cat's ass. It took a couple years for them to get the power back up to carbureted levels.

    I don't like how the hydraulic cylinders are located on the top of the outriggers. Fine for window washers but a terrible design for tree work.

    No, you cannot buy a major medical policy any more. At least not here. You can only buy health insurance policies that meet all of the Obamacare requirements. Which is exactly why most people in this country are in favor of repealing Obamacare. The ones in favor of keeping it haven't thought it all the way through yet.

    So you say by undoing the mandate shots will get more expensive. As opposed to what? All health care costs have been skyrocketing for many years, which is what Obamacare was supposed to remedy. Except it didn't. It only accelerated the rate of price increases (except for the people who can't pay anyway) and took away options many of us had before the law passed. It would be nice if insurance companies could once again offer a major medical coverage policy without having to include all the basic crap and extras that drive up the cost. I don't need a policy that includes sex change operations or abortion coverage or annual PAP smears. Eliminating Obamacare will allow insurance companies to once again offer basic major medical policies at lower cost than what we have to pay now.

    My only experience with a hospital in the last decade was an ER visit when I cut my hand with a chainsaw. They offered to give me a 50% discount if I paid on the spot before leaving the premises. I did and it was still expensive. But a lot less than paying for insurance and then having to pay the full rate because I hadn't met my deductible yet. Health insurance is a scam and I have no answer for people with families because there is no good option when you have dependents. When I had a colonoscopy last year my doc referred me to a place that takes self pay clients. Cost me $950 I think. Again, cheaper than insurance plus deductible.

    Don't recall exactly. I want to guess $2700. I remember I had to pay three separate entities, all in advance. The doctor, the anesthesiologist and the surgery center that provided the operating room.

    Never had heart surgery. Last surgery I had was a bicep tendon repair several years back. Nothing. Paying your bills never hurts your credit score. My FICO has been between 750-820 for the last decade or more. It tends to drop a little when I get a bit over extended but comes back up as my balances drop.

    It's all part of the ruse to scare everybody into paying the outrageous policy rates. All those insurance company executives gotta pay for their yachts and mansions somehow. If you think you're protecting yourself against a possible $300K hospital bill by paying $10K per year then you pay it. But if you find out that the $300K hospital bill can be settled for $20K then how much value is it to pay the $10K in annual premiums?

    I believe if you really want and need to work, most likely you will find something. May not always be want you know or want .....but. There was one time in MA during the 80s that finding work was extremely difficult for me. I had worked my way up to press operator in a factory. When the factory was purchased by an overseas company, a lot of us lost our jobs. A lot of people lost jobs back then in other areas of mfg. Robotics and computers took some of them. Automation. And there was a recession going on. Less product needed to be mfg. I took the unemployment while I looked. Buggered my toe on a lawn mower and the temp disability helped. Then they had a program to retrain me through the unemployment office after my toe healed. State paid all my wages except .50 per hour by a company willing to train me. I can't remember for how long. But obviously cheaper at min wage for the unemployment insurance and it gave me work and a new trade that paid better later. Not near what I made at the previous factory, but enough for the time coupled with a part time gig I put together for myself. Seemed a good program for the times.

    That is how right to work is in AZ. Easier to find another job than get unemployment. I was able to join a plumbers union though. But the shop I worked for was non union. So it was more of a learn here thing, and maybe we can find you work later.
