Hey Twitter fam.
Me and The Wife have had a tough day, but I want to thank all of you for your immense kindness to us.
I have said repeatedly on here that reaching out to people--strangers--who are struggling is the best of us.
You all are the best.
I'm grateful for your support.
So I have a new series of tests to go through.
More specialists because of "co-morbidities" (confluence of things that can kill you).
More fun times with my exorbitant health insurance ($1,978.10 per month for an HMO--#ThanksTrump!) and the dreaded "prior authorization."
The plan is to keep living, writing, finish the two books that are overdue to the publisher (thanks for my fab editors) and keep loving The Wife who has loved me since we first met on the 26 bus on our way to our all girls high school.

It's a good plan.
I hope you'll support me.

Hours of my work day and my very limited energy have been spent fighting with my health insurance company about my coverage.

As of January, my freaking premium now costs $1,978.10 PER MONTH.

This is what Trump did to sick people & everyone applauded last night at the #SOTU
I have no idea who has this kind of money but it's more than I make.

The sicker you are, the more expensive your plan.And there's no option because the #GOP allowed health insurance companies (who just got a huge tax cut) to charge whatever they want for coverage.
So The Wife, who is the same age as I am and who has the exact same plan, pays $239.00 a month for hers.

This is America right now for sick people. I would qualify for #Medicaid expansion if I lived in a different state, but I do not.

This is madness. Just madness.

#BillionairesFirst tax plan eliminates the adoption deduction. There are 125K adoptions a year that cost about 20K a year. 2/12
#Sec1308 eliminates the deduction of medical expenses. Until #MedicareForAll we need this deduction. 19% of Americans used this in 2015 3/12

.@somuchweirdness suggests I explain how Trump stopping CSR payments actually effects ppl.

Because I always listen, will tweet that soon.1/
CSR payments reduce the size of deducts & co-pays for low income exchange consumers.

Insurers who participate must continue 2 pay them.2/
In the remainder of 2017, insurers will pay them as required-- approx $2 billion+-- but govt won't pay them back as promised. 3/
