I think my head is going to spin right off. I grew up poor and uninsured. This whole heal care thing is not actually rocket science.
So, the other day I was talking to my commie girlfriend. I'm not being mean. I'm being accurate.(Well, somewhat reformed now). But lived on a commune and the whole bit. She is a single mother with a kid. And the kid has a bunch of health problems. Allergic to air kinda kid. So she was telling me something about that. Which I thought was a good opportunity to ask her if she was taking the penalty on Obamacare. She's mentioned a while back she was going to which made me laugh and be resentful all at once. I told you - she lived on a commune! Anyway.
She said she was indeed taking the penalty. I think she said it was 700 dollars a year for her. She then went on to say she could just walk into a clinic and it's only like 40 bucks. And sometimes they give you drugs for free. Which is exactly the way it was when I was growing up. Now my girlfriend isn't poor. She is a single mother, but she's doing okay. But do you know how many visits you need to have to rack up 700 bucks a year? She might have been a commie, but she's at least figured out math.
I have insurance, yet I don't spend what I pay into health care. The whole thing is a racket and the sooner people just start paying more in cash. The better off we will all be. The price of everything will come right down.
