    Here's one way to call attention to the pre-existing condition problem, I suppose:


    After fruitlessly searching for months for a way to get health coverage, Carlson decided that she had only one way to get affordable coverage: She would get married. She has set up a website called WillMarryForHealthInsurance.com and is offering to marry someone whose health insurance will cover her as well. “You know, I am not happy I was delt this deck of cards in my life. However, if I don’t fight for myself nobody will. While the goverment fights over healthcare reform people like me suffer … as drastic as it sounds, I will marry for health insurance,” she writes on the site.

    All women are prostitutes. Some of them don't realize it...

    She would have to take care of some guy's frequently existing condition

    Line forms to the left, guys.


    She's in San Diego, if that matters to you.

    If she wants to travel, I have health insurance. It's called "being a Canadian citizen." :D

    Yeah but then she'd have to be a socialist and probably have to sit before a death panel blah, blah, blah, blah ...

    Sorry, Trey. January stays with me regardless. :)
  10. I read somewhere, there are some people who think this is a ploy - by Democrats? - to bring attention to the healthcare crisis. Don't know if it is true or not.
    I can't imagine any health insurance company would insure this woman once she is married. Isn't this kind of like marrying solely for a green card?

    Sorry in advance for the political bullshit that will eventually poison this thread.

    Too bad marriage between gays causes such harm to the sanctity of marriage.
