Chris Rock & Health Insurance

5/31/2007 12:27:00 PM
Have you ever seen Chris Rock's act "Bigger and Blacker"? It's a little outdated (1999) but he had a great segment about insurance. If you haven't seen it, you can get the dvd here. A brief excerpt if I may (pardon the cursewords, but I wanted to be true to his act):

You know what's worse than taxes? What's worse than tax is insurance.
They shouldn't even call it insurance. They just should call it ''in case sh*t.''
I give a company some money in case sh*t happens.
Now, if sh*t don't happen, shouldn't l get my money back?

If you haven't heard, starting July 1st, almost everyone in Massachusetts will be required by law to have health insurance. In an effort to help us all to be prepared in case sh*t happens, the state has set up a website to help in the quest for insurance. It's called the Commonwealth Connector and it can be found

Using the website, you can compare different plans, premiums, co-pays, deductibles, and all that good stuff.

Go out and get yourself some coverage. And to close with some more Chris Rock, just because I loved that act, I leave you with a possible alternative: Robitussin.

When l was a kid, we didn't have no insurance.
We didn't have a damn thing.
You had to be damn near dead to see the doctor.
You had to be way past Robitussin.
That's all we hadwhen I was a kid: Robitussin.
No matter what you got, Robitussin better handle it.

"Daddy, l got asthma."

"I got cancer.''

l broke my leg, Daddy poured Robitussin on it.

And just to make sure this blog is a complete resource to you. You can get Robitussin here
