At one point in the episode Rhoda asks Mary why she doesn't get a private room. She responds by saying, "No, my insurance only covers semi-private." I was shocked. Although I was only 12 years old at the time, I don't recall anyone talking about health insurance back then, much less complaining about it. I half-expected the next words out of Mary's mouth to be, "Thanks a lot, Obama!"
If I was 12 then President Obama (who shares the same birthday with me) would have been only nine (and living in Kenya). Doesn't matter; it's his fault.
Maybe all of our health care problems didn't start with Obamacare.
