    Dr. Tom B, orthopedic surgeon, probably pulling down close to a miilion a year when in practice (how else do you get to be a Senator - besides being from a tiny state), told us he'd seen health care from all sides, as he'd had sick family members.

    The only side he hasn't seen it from is from the low income side.

    And that's a big side. Unless you're  a Republican - because McConnell noted that HSA policy holders were "not rich," with average income only $69K.

    $69K puts you at the top quarter of incomes,, though I expect republicans think $69 K is lower midddle class and $50 K is poor.

    And besides, the only reason you get HSA's is if you're healthy and shortsighted OR can't a fford real insurance.
