can you justify taking money from people who really cannot afford their own medications, their own doctor's bills, their own health care needs, just
to turn around and give it to others who they feel are more worthy to have their needs covered? if so, please explain?
this is how people like me fall from being productive taxpayers to being disabled WIDOWS!!
being told that oh, you have to pay more local property taxes, oh you have to pay more sales taxes, more for you car registrations, more for your
state taxes... more, more, more.... so we can have the funds to pay for the medicaid, of which you don't qualify.... while you watch your ability to
walk deteriorate to the point where you are falling down on the job that you have to keep doing for the danged health insurance that still isn't
really much help because the danged bills are still sinking the danged family's finances! so, you quit the job that you can no longer do when you
realize that the latest perscription has sucked out so much money... you don't even have the money to pay for the gas to get to work, lose the
insurance, and well, just end up resigned to let whatever happens... and what happens, oh ya, you wake up one day, get up to walk across the floor,
hear the sound of bones snapping..... and end up needing surgery to repair the broken bones in the ankle that just snapped.. only.... in order to get
that done... the surgeon want's a few thousand dollars downpayment before he will do that... still no help from the govv't, make too much money...
still, oh please pay your taxes, we need the money to fund the medicaid...
either answer my question in a meaningful way.... just what gives the gov't the right to pick and chose just who, under what criteria, is worthy of
that help and who is sol!! or just shut the heck up and don't judge me.. I went danged near a year after my husband died with absolute no income,
and without danged gov't program that could help me before I finally managed to get that disability... social security, what ever you want to call it.
widow's benefit!! you can just consider it as me getting back a little of the money that my father, my brother, my husband... all of who passed on
before they got a penny of it... and myself paid in through their working years!!!
you find birth control as an unworthy healthcare need....
oh well, guess what... I found my neighbors concern over her kid's runny nose as an unworthy healthcare need also! didn't stop them from taking
money from my family's income though did it??
I just don't take kindly to people picking and cho0sing who should get help and who should be left in the cold, or what healthcare is worthy or what
isn't... my experience has told me that their picking and choosing usually ends up trickling down into insanity!!!
I am what people's picking and choosing has created and now they can live with that fact, just as I have to...
