I've been thinking about my goalie camp scenario:
"Mom, why can't I go to goalie camp...my coach said I should?"
"We can't afford it this summer."
"But, Jimmy's going and his Dad doesn't even have a job."
"That's because 20% of Daddy's pay comes off the top to pay for our healthcare and another 33% in taxes and those taxes pay for Jimmy's family's healthcare so they can afford goalie camp."
"That's not fair."
And then The Man got me thinking about the 26 yr old OWSer living in his mom's basement and the 26 year old healthy, industrious engineer that is now forced into heath care or pay a tax to cover the aforementioned man-child succubus.
And, the sheer burden this bill will be to the average, working family hit me like a ton of bricks. The rich are rich...so, while their load might be larger, they won't notice it as much. The poor will ride the rides for free and it will be the working class folks that will labor under this new health care plan.
Now I must be losing my mind because I'm thinking that a Single Payer Health Care system might be better...or easier on the middle class. Is full blown socialized medicine better than the welders, teachers, electricians and nurses shouldering the entire load of an entitled loafing class...?
I don't know.
Unless we can convince the naysayers to hold their nose and vote in November, we're doomed I think. We need Obama out and more (R)'s in the Senate. I think I read we only need 50 or 51 for a repeal since it was declared a tax by SCOTUS. REPEAL or full blown socialized medicine. I think that's where we're at people. Obamacare won't work as it stands.
