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.
#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass
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.
I’m going to need the free health care too, since my father who is a doctor and my mother who owns the business will be in debt from this free health care. It costs a lot of money to pay for the machinery, rent for the facility, pay for the staff, but let’s not stop there he also a has a family to feed, property and taxes to pay for as well. How about this for a thought, he also has had to spend 40 something years to pay off his student loans that allowed him to study hard to get to where he is in the workforce. Not nearly enough will be given to him from this free health care. Free health care is not free, people. Maybe it is free for you, but not for people who have to work hard for what they have.
That is just one view-point and sadly it does not end there.
I have lost faith in working hard for a decent living. Maybe I should quit college and get a low income job so that I can qualify too. But wait, too bad, my family is white and look well off enough. We won’t qualify and we will still have to pay the higher taxes. I will have my life to pay off any student loans I will have to have now. My parents were happy to help me get through college, but that will probably not happen now. They worked hard so that they could help me, a broke, unqualified, college student get the education I need to be qualified and be able to support myself and my family, especially my folks who care so much about me, without having to stress myself ill with life long debt to pay, just like my parents are now. They are literally dying from working so hard and getting nothing from it.
A lot of people who have worked hard for a decent living, will have a high regret for working hard and becoming what they are, but guess what, some on has to do it and they are a very important part of society.
I am happy for you, I really am, but Obama care is hindering a lot of people as well. I’m prone to illness quite a bit, I’ve had bronchitis, my family had to pay for it back in the day, and we will have to now even more than ever should it happen again.
Think about this,
If doctors feel it’s not worth it to work hard to become doctors, there will be less and less of them in the future.
If there are too little doctors the demand will rise, the in desperation, the qualifications for doctors will go down. When the qualifications go down, people who don’t know shit about what they are doing will step in, leading to poor care for everyone.
