I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.
there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch, just like you said in your own post — you’re the one paying for someone else’s health care. tbh at this point, I would be okay with the system if it was set in place and everyone got equal care, but that hasn’t been my experience.
I haven’t had health insurance myself since I was in elementary school (when my parents got laid off). when I was shopping around to see how much health insurance would be for my fiance and myself, I was shocked to see that I was in that perfect threshold of being too “rich” at $19,000 a year to qualify for medicaid, and poor enough that healthcare.gov didn’t offer me much help — it was expecting I’d qualify for other benefits, I assume. With rent alone being $720/month (nearly $9,000 just for shelter) and having car payments and tuition ($4,000 a semester after scholarships) and everything else — no way am I going to buy $250/month health insurance when I can get a doctor’s visit even once a month for $100 (which I don’t do anyway). So basically, here’s what the ACA is doing for me:
Making me pay $95 just to continue doing what I’ve done for years — maintain my health-insurance-less state
if I was taxed slightly more out of my weekly paychecks and was able to go to the doctor whenever I wanted, I’d actually be better with that because it’d be like a tiny payment plan into my health care. but they want me to pay a private company to “cover” me which includes paying a deductible in most cases before even receiving any care, as well as paying a fairly large monthly premium — and then there’s the co-pay when I get there. it’s very discouraging for people in my situation, students who work full-time and are in that threshold, to go to the doctor at all. I’m actually considering taking a year off from school because the next year the penalty will be even higher…
anyway, long ramble. didn’t mean to rant to you or anyone in particular, just felt like it needed to be said.
I really like your username
whittneydoll replied to your post “I can’t have sex for two weeks because I’m getting an IUD in good…”
i love your honesty, it’s nice to see another girl who isn’t against anal, too.
actually, in a lot of ways I prefer anal over vaginal because a) I have a lot of nerves there compared to inside my vagina, aside from the g-spot, and b) I don’t have to worry about getting pregnant, since we don’t go ass-to-vagina ever, especially after orgasm
also the fact that my fiance enjoys it is a huge turn-on, of course
I can’t have sex for two weeks because I’m getting an IUD in
good news is, the only reason for the abstinence is because of the pregnancy factor
so my butt’s ready to go ;)
