    especially if I wind up volunteering rather then being paid.  We'll see how it goes.

    Maybe it will open doors to a new job rather then the same stuff I've been doing.  Otherwise, I'll hold out as long as responsibly can and then go back to consulting.

    •  Understood. I couldn't go back to 'corporate (4+ / 0-)

      America' myself. That's why I wish we had single-payer health insurance in the US - so much easier for entrepreneurs to take the plunge if they know their basic health needs are covered. (Not snark, truly wish this were the case here.)

      •  I share that wish my friend (5+ / 0-)

        Never had any "entrepreneurial impulse" myself.  I've actually enjoyed working for large companies all these years.

        But self-employment aside, Universal Health Care would solve a LOT of problems and provide a safety net for man people.  

        Personally, I've known a lot of people that have put off going back to grad school because they while they could afford to not work or work part-time while grinding out the classwork, they couldn't afford paying for their own benefits or risk going without.

        Well... our only hope to keep moving forward on this front is to keep Obama in office, so I'll see what I can do about that over the next few months.  ;)
