Health Care

Capitalism is good, as long as you leave my health out of it.

I lost my job a few weeks ago. I have always had the desire to work for myself. So here's my chance right? Wish that were true. The problem I'm running into is, my wife has lupus and I can not go without insurance for long. So I started looking into the cost of the Affordable Care Act. Affordable, really? The prices are way too high. The deductibles would send me straight in to the poor house within a year. How does someone with out a job pay $1,100-$1,700 for anything? What a joke.

If you want people to start their own businesses, provide them with universal health care. No one can start a business and have insurance at the same time without plenty of capital. Universal health care would give individuals like me, a chance to step out there and take a shot at their dreams.

I don't understand why it is even legal to use someone's hardship (bad health) as a why to capitalize. There is something morally wrong with getting rich when people are sick.

America please wake up.

The ones that are not effected by all this are the rich. They have the money and are making it through our suffering. Again, and as I stated below, they have the system set up to benefit their needs, not ours.

2017

Just thought I'd to this post being our new president is attempting to make things worse by moving the country further from universal health care. Universal health care is not free. We pay taxes folks. Who has to pay for the tax write offs when hospitals and doctors dont get paid? We all do. The only difference is that poor person that couldnt afford health care to begin with is now saddled with a bill they can never pay off, and bad credit when they don't. Wish there was a way to reverse the roles of the rich and poor. The rich would have a different appropriation for what its like to be stuck at the bottom with no way up. Most would probably end their lives.
