In an article from The Epoch Times,
Employees at Delta Airlines will have to pay a $200 per month surcharge for their company sponsored health-care plan if they aren’t vaccinated against covid-19, according to the companies top executive.
Just let that sink in for a minute. The top execs at Delta airlines, who plan out the budgets and have their finger on the pulse of where their money goes, sees the unvaccinated as the driving force of skyrocketing health-care cost! Incredible! For years I thought it was poor food choices, increase soda and alcohol consumption, lack of exercise and obesity that increased the cost but I was wrong.
Why would the unvaccinated be the only people who are charged more? Why not institute a surcharge for those who go to fast-food restaurants? Or for those who choose to drink and smoke? This is all very simple to do. When you go to buy any food or drink, you have to submit the receipt to your employer for their approval. You want to buy cigs and beer? You will pay more for your insurance. How about a Twinkie or donut? Hitting the drive-thru is really going to cost you!
Sure, I know companies that offer a discount for yearly health checkups but I don’t think it comes anywhere close to $200/month. And with that in mind, why is it not those who get vaccinated get a discount on insurance as opposed to those who aren’t vaccinated pay more? Wouldn’t that makes sense as the vaccine is suppose to be a good thing? As mom would say, everything is bass-ackwards (yes, she does say that).
If 2 years ago, someone said to you that your government is so concerned about your health that they are going to shut down gyms and leave fast-food restaurants open, what would you say? How about if you were told that your company can charge you more for insurance for lifestyle choices they deem to be bad. Would you be ok with that? I wonder.
