Uninsured? Show Us

What a great idea! Republicans like to say that being uninsured in America is a myth. If you happen to be among the ranks of those who worry at a constant, low level about what will happen if you are sick or injured, you know better.

Now you can show teabaggers, rich Republicans, and anyone else who doesn’t believe in you that you exist. Label yourself accordingly with the new “Uninsured Wristband.”

At first glance, this wristband looks like just another “awareness bracelet.” However, it isn’t meant to be used simply as a fundraising tool or symbol of concern.

The people wearing the uninsured wristband are spreading a personal message:

“I’m uninsured, you may not know why, but now you know my face. Maybe I look like you or someone you love. I’m uninsured and scared of being without health insurance in this country. Maybe my health is already suffering from lack of health care. Today it’s me, tomorrow it could be you.”

The bracelet’s maker wants to provide them free, so is asking those who can to pay $3.99 each (free shipping!). Hey, that sounds a little like the health reform Pres. Obama has in mind. Anyway, get yours today.

Now if someone could just come up with a “Working a Second Job So I’ll Have Health Insurance” wristband, I’d be all set.

    I guess they have not bothered to watch the reports from RAM, how many this wee? I think they are treating about 8000.
