I don’t normally post anything political or religious on here, but here goes for political. Well it’s finally happening! My buddy just finished his taxes and got fined for not having health insurance in excess of $400+! Which means that I am now dreading to file as the same will happen to me. I know people that have no choice because they have families and are getting killed financially with healthcare coverage premiums. There is no alternative when kids are part of the equation. My fine will not be as bad compared to that, but next year I’ve heard that the fines will be exponentially increased to $2,000+! If someone decides to drive and purchases a vehicle, it is required by law to obtain vehicle insurance. It is against the law to drive without having insurance. To drive or not to drive is your choice. To live and breath on planet Earth (at least North of Mexico and South of Canada), one is required by law to purchase health insurance. I believe to operate my human vessel, this option should be my choice as well. What’s the alternative in this circumstance, to choose not to live? Hell no! Besides, that option is also against the law (they might even handcuff you in an open casket, quintuple your death tax, and charge you for the cost of the handcuffs). The Affordable Careless Act is just another way to take from the poor and middle class yet again. I clock in at upper poor or lower middle class and have been fortunate enough to have never been to a doctor/hospital for over 25 years. It is important to have health insurance, but should be every American’s choice to “shop” for it in our capitalist market system. So many people have lost good jobs and small businesses have taken a hit and/or closed up shop due to the ridiculous regulations put upon us with the ACA. I’ve never had much faith in our government and now that I’m older, the last 15 years of bad decions/policy making has fueled my contempt. Great leaders unify, strive for peace, uphold and defend people’s rights, and carefully plan to ensure and procure solutions for their nation’s success. This has not happened! Obama thinks he is the 21st century’s FDR- he is not even close. If he thinks that the ACA will be his biggest contribution to his legacy, then he might as well build his presidential library in the crater of Mt. Kilauea. Our representatives in the Senate that voted “yay” are also to blame. Term limits and smaller government are the only solutions to combat track records of continued incompetence, bureaucracy, and corruption. Perhaps we the people should audit the IRS and require that politicians submit monthly expenditure/activity reports that are subject to yearly public review?
