Share, are you "horrified" by your post numbers yet this week? Why
were you "horrified"? What was your mind telling you? What reasons
did you use to rationalize it to yourself? Was there an emotion
behind the word choice of "horrified"? If so, what did you do with the
emotion? Is this post to Richard funny to you in the context you
wrote it, or does it seem on second glance to exhibit behavior that
indicates you might be out of touch and out of control on a certain
level? I'm sincerely curious, which is why I ask.

If you are married, you may pay a higher tax or get less assistance in
order to afford medical insurance.

Now we're going to have to pay higher taxes in order to get heath
insurance. You can't keep your plan or your doctor and you can't sign
up at the exchange. And now I'm finding out there's a marriage
penalty.It's just outrageous!
The rentistoo damn high!

Not only has it already been passed long since, it's survived a
Supreme Court challenge. The Republicans--a minority of the most
conservative--aren't trying to keep it from passing, they're
trying to get it repealed, defunded. It's just insane. That's why
the government is shut down and why the debt limit increase is in
jeopardy, threatening default. This small group of House members
is holding the country hostage.
Once Obamacare is fully in effect, unless things go badly wrong
somehow, a lot of people will change their tune. Folks are
bellyaching, generally speaking, because they're either
misinformed (by the Republicans) or uninformed.
Somebody took a poll the other day asking people if they approved
of Obamacare; then asking them if they approved of the Affordable
Care Act. A sizeable percentage approved of the latter but not
the former. In fact, Obamacare IS the Affordable Care Act. Just
different ways of referring to the same exact thing.
The new government Web site where people can find out about and
apply for Obamacare has been mobbed the past few days. That's the
good news. The bad news is that it wasn't prepared for such a
huge onslaught and has been malfunctioning rather seriously. You
just want to tear your hair out.
I gotta tell you I do not, for the life of me, understand why
Americans are belly aching about a new health care set up in the
US. Nothing could be any more expensive and out of reach for the
average American than it is now. I think if the damn thing ever
passes all this fear-mongering and whining will prove
unjustified. Christ, I hear some people are even afraid the US
will become a (gasp) socialistic society as a result. I've got
news for you guys, you already are.
