The proverbial free lunch?
As I continue my fight with advanced liver disease and the political battle on the pending train wreck that is Obamacare gains momentum I am reminded of the old adage, "You can pay me now or you can pay me later."
Politicians are no better than the Insurance companies in perpetuating the endless cycle of lies and deceptions necessary to generate income and raise expectations all at the expense of those that do not have the common sense to truly listen to what they are saying.
The number one argument from those in favor of Obamacare is that "they" are tired of paying higher premiums for people like "me" that have no insurance.
People like "me" are at least smart enough to know that:
a.) People like "you" are having your taxes raised to pay for the insurance that people like "me" can not buy because we are part of the long term unemployed. You know, another in the long list of problems Mr. Obama was going to take care of...
b.) the penalty for not buying insurance is still cheaper than the average premium.
c.) there is no free lunch. this is a program parallel to the predatory lending practises that helped push this country over the economic edge.
I have stage 4 liver disease. My prognosis is bleak. I become outraged at the bleeding hearts that tell me I should support Obamacare because it helps "people like me."
It does not...I know...I live it.
I am more than a social security number with a pulse or a disease. I am a human being. Obama can take my individual liberties away, but not my dignity.
Defund Obamacare now...
If Congress gets a waiver then what does that tell you? This is not about ideology. This is about a dictator gone mad.
