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.
If it wasn’t for Medicaid, I’d literally be dead right now; not only because I need breathing medication but because I just had surgery for a massive hernia. My bowels were beginning to come out of a 4 in. tear. I worked for many years and paid my taxes; now the system is there for me. Please stop being judgemental asshats and show some compassion!
Barry didn’t do that for you - the RX people did and they were doing it BEFORE Barry.
you want to hear something FUNNY??? ‘
If most people got off their ass and looked, Americans could FIND low cost to free healthcare and free meds… but they have to get off their ass and look. We have gone from a country of innovative hard workers, to whining babies with our hands out whining - But it’s not FAAAAAAAAAAAAIR! It’s not fair! I don’t have all this stuff! It’s my right! It’s not fair!
Nowhere do you hear them say - it’s my responsibility.
for the 7.3 million people who have signed up for this crap, it has cost each taxpayer $10,000 each.
That’s right. The AHA has cost EACH AMERICAN TAXPAYING CITIZEN TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS APIECE.
Please tell me how the fuck that is affordable? Hmmmm????
You could find affordable healthcare before and you could tweak it for your needs. My 73 year father’s coverage includes birth control and abortion. And when he asked about dropping that, he was informed it would cost him 15.00 a month - extra.
I had free healthcare. I have diabetes and asthma and when my job situation changed a few years back (that would AFTER Barry took office) I called the local county health department and found a free doctor and discovered that pharmaceuticals DO HAVE PROGRAMS to give pharmaceuticals away to those in need. So my expensive diabetes meds and asthma inhaler were FREE! And at no cost to the taxpayer.
Also, I ended up in the ER once with an infection and I got my antibiotics for free at the grocery store.
Of course, you can’t get doxycyclene anymore, thanks to Barrycare. He put them out of business. Truth.com.
Somewhere (November 15th of last year, to be honest) I posted a rather long rant on how crappy Socialized medicine is - that would include Canadian Healthcare - along with links… you can look for it in my archive.
Now I’m not saying we need to drop Medicaid and Medicare and leave everyone scrapping. There are people who need help. The elderly have paid for theirs through Social Security all their life. There are disabled people who yes, do need help and I am all for helping them. But I really don’t appreciate fucking Democrats deciding they need to take care of me and everyone else. What I paid 62.00 a month for with no deductible back in 2010 now will cost me over 400 a month with a 2000.00 deductible. And it won’t be between me and my doctor to decide how to deal with my illness! Please!
Bottom line is I can find affordable insurance that suits my needs much easier and cheaper than the government can, as could the majority of Americans if they would simply do it. Sadly, too many Americans wants the government to wipe their ass for them because they are too lazy to do it. Wait until you see your tax bill in 2016 if this thing isn’t rescinded.
