Who am I to know?
I’m so sick of reading all of these “Obama is a liar about the healthcare tax” things. Since when has a president who used different wording been a surprise? I tend to recall a president who lied about weapons of mass destruction, and that got us into a war where people DIED, not used a different word for tax. But the war president got us into a big debt, so surprise, surprise. But that’s not even Watergate lies or anything else of that nature. I think we can come to terms with the fact that we are told lies. But what this tax will be like is similar to medicare and social security. We complain about our money going to those two things, and we’d complain if we lost it. In the long run, this tax will save us money because we aren’t going to be spending tens of thousands on ridiculous hospital bills, and you won’t have to worry about being denied help. Like my mom who has to pay tens of thousands of dollars for all her trips to a bunch of different doctors who still can’t tell her what is wrong with her so she still has more appointments and more tests. Or having an epileptic seizure because you can’t afford your medicine because you were laid off from your job so your epilepsy takes over your life. Or having to pay $25,000 for a hospital stay after your stomach hurt so bad and the doctors can’t tell you what is wrong. Or after fainting, you have a seizure which prompts a $15,000 MRI scan to find out if you have internal bleeding and can die. Or having to pay $50,000 because you had a stroke and now you can’t speak and are paralyzed and have to pay debts for the rest of your life. But I’m just a naive nineteen year old college student who doesn’t know anything and hasn't experienced life yet, right?
