I’ve just finished school and in this economy I’m having a difficult time finding a job and affording health care insurance. Hooray! I can still live at home with Mummy and Daddy and thanks to Obama’s health care plan, I can still be covered under their plan. Good deal.
The years have gone by and I still can’t find a job with good health care benefits. Hmm, that degree in scuba diving hasn’t paid off yet. and to make things worse, The guy I idolized for making it possible to stay on Mom’s health care plan for an extended amount of time, wants to penalize me for not being able to afford it after that extended amount of time ran out. I knew there was a catch. He even went as far as to call the fine a tax so it would be constitutionally viable to stick it to me. I feel like I’m being punished for being a second class citizen.
Fortunately, I am not in the situation above. I am a father who still has his youngest son at home. His mother and I fear for him because it seems that our government has begun to take the position that they will beat us into submission with fines disguised as taxes. 1984 was Orwell’s vision of how the future would be for the Soviet Union. Of course we have all seen how that turned out. Are we now on the same path? Would it not be prudent for our government to figure out how to help the people of this country, rather than to punish those who do not earn the kind of money that President Obama makes? Has he forgotten who is paying for his benefits?
Mr. Obama, I voted for you and believe that there are good points to your health care reforms. But do not force me or anyone to buy something we cannot afford. You are tackling the wrong aspect of this problem. Let’s get people back to work. Let’s do something about fuel prices, Damn it! That alone might help create a better atmosphere for an economy to grow. And most importantly, Do something about the cost of health care and insurance!!! This is where you should be focusing, not on the poor souls who cannot afford it! You should be ashamed!
