Health care reform: for men only

First came the Stupak Amendment.  Now come the new mammogram recommendations.

Suddenly I’m feeling like the goal here is doing away with health care for women, period. Women do cost more to insure, after all, with all their abortions (we’re all just dying to run out and get one, you know) and mammograms and reproductive health problems and greater number of elective doctor visits for preventive care.

Yeah, yeah, I know, I’m just a paranoid old woman. But all things considered, I’ve decided Washington can take health care reform and shove it.  There are too many cooks in the health care kitchen — Republicans, Democrats, insurance companies, Big Pharma, unions, religious conservatives — and they’re all much more concerned with covering their own asses than dealing fairly with women’s health.

We women were clearly better off before anyone started talking about “reforming” our health care.
