OK, wait a second, plenty of people get free (to them) healthcare in the US. Sometimes the people on the 'free' care actually get better services offered to them than those of us who have to pay for it all.
I am tired of people saying that just because you work your butt off to take care of your family, then you have a moral obligation to pay higher insurance rates and healthcare costs and taxes to pay for the people who don't put in the effort for themselves. (I understand that is not everyone, but a lot)
So, why should I have to shell out another $63 a head in my family for our PAID for health insurance.
That is $249 a year for my family of 4, now let's add on the raised property taxes to pay for the school supplies that I send in every year for my child and half of his class anyway? That's another $400 a year, ok now we are up to $349 a month of added expenses, oh wait a minute, because the insurance companies are paying out the rear for Obamacare, they have now raised the rates on my homeowners and vehicle insurance to make their ends meet. So all totaled I need to pay out almost $400 more EVERY month because you think the healthcare should be free?
This is what is wrong with the world today! The attitude of I am entitled to sit on my butt all day, but oh poor me, I am broke, so someone else better give it to me. There is no reward for hard work or PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY anymore, people are rewarded for being good sheep and letting themselves be ushered into the slaughterhouse.
But thanks for telling me that I need to give up my grocery money every month.
