Many Americans find this appealing and the right thing to do. But let’s think about this, why?
Why should no one pay more than $200 a year on medication? Americans spend $72 billion a year on their pets. That’s an average of between $325 and $1,900 a year for dogs and cats.
Am I comparing your dog with your health? Nope, I’m comparing $200 with $200 spent on one thing or another or in this case $200 vs $1,900.
I know few people, including me, who think about spending money on health care as part of their regular budget, but it’s a fact or should be.
Make a list of all the things you spend $1,000 or more a year on that are not basic necessities of life and then tell me why you can’t spend that or more on your medication or other health care.
