My point exactly- they're going to do that to me regardless. I've worked hard and gotten myself into a comfortable place in live a couple times
over- I've never been rich but I've been quite confident that I was on my way, only to have it all taken away.
A few years back my old man was dang near busted by a medical ordeal- he had the best insurance a working man can hope for- a solid union group plan
that basically never required him to pay a dime- but the rules designed to make sure that big money always wins still threw a huge monkey wrench into
his retirement, and then they told him to go work as a greeter at Walmart because he could still standup and was therefore not disabled- he hired a
lawyer and the lawyer didn't do anything- he had to go take the papers back from the lawyer and do some last minute hustling or he would be a laid
off homeless walmart greeter right now after 30 years of back and brain busting work as an operating engineer. As it is he is no longer a home owner
with a savings- just another renter living check to check on a smaller amount than he'd been planning for, not much different than his much less
When I saw that, I knew better than to try again at accumulating stuff that can be taken away from me. Now I work up a small savings then leave my job
and go live while I'm young, then rinse and repeat. I would rather have a high probability of dying of an untreated heart condition in my 40s than
waste my whole life working for someone else just to be cut off at the knees when I'm finally free.
Now they're telling me that I have to take on this absurd expense, not even for the quality of insurance that I already decided wasn't worth it, but
for some bare bones crap that will be enough to diagnose and partially medicate but not cure whatever eventually gets me- the worst of both worlds. I
absolutely will not do it- when the penalty gets so bad that I can't even afford the penalty for disobedience I'll probably stop filing my taxes all
together- I'm considering giving up my car and my government ID if that's what it takes to stay under their radar. But I'm not expecting something
for nothing- I don't want medical care. When a work injury got infected and spread deep into my leg, I cut down into it drained it and disinfected it
myself. My mom was afraid it would go to the bone and I'd lose my leg. I found that ironic because I have a surgical scar on that same leg from the
beginning of an amputation.
I'm told that I was only a baby, was misdiagnosed with cancer, and it was all decided that I would go through life on one leg when the doc came out
and revealed that he didn't see a tumor in there when he started cutting- his theory was that a vaccination had been done wrong and caused a fluid
build-up in my leg. I'm expected to pay for more of that?
