People already complain about their tax dollars going to people who have disabilities and are either unable to work or can work very little. So,
yeah, they'll complain that their tax dollars are going to affordable health care, which includes a woman's right to use it to have an abortion. My
mother, who is very much mentally disabled and cannot work, just got a talk to by her son-in-law about how her disabled status is bad for his taxes.
Most people, in my opinion, don't want to spend a dime that MUST be enforced in order to make it even happen to help another living being in
distress, especially if they themselves did not CHOOSE to. They don't care that people on SSDI have paid their fair share in working a certain
amount of terms, and if they choose to work part time, like me, are also working to partially continue their benefits or repay a portion of them.
Yes, it is my desire to try and get better and maybe work my way out of the system and gain independence and work 40 or more hours a week like I did
from the age of 16-27, but I don't know if I can because I have very real problems, even with this part time job I have now. The fact is, between
the ages of 25-27 I worked on a daily basis as an impaired person. I worked in a dangerous warehouse position, lifting and moving heavy objects and
operating heavy machinery. I was hallucinating on a consistent basis and still trying to perform, even while medicated. I no longer hallucinate and
stuff like that, which is good, but I just can't think like a "normal" person since this all struck me, and I have the possibility of relapsing at
any time. Of course, I no longer push myself beyond the limits of my intellectual capacity in trying to think about things, like I used to, so there
is some improvement going on with me.
Still however, there will always be the group that gripes because things like ACA will take a few more cents off their dollar, and whether it causes
inflation is really up to whether they think making a profit and allowing them to live in luxury is more important than simply staying afloat,
surviving, providing a service to the public, and making an equal return for what was dealt out. It's the fact that most companies want to make a
margin of a 40-80% profit on their services that causes inflation, not the fact that it really is going to hurt their ability to survive or continue
providing services, IMO...
