To start, I want to say that I am NOT a political person. I don’t follow them closely, I tend to not care as much as I know I should, and I also don’t like getting involved in arguments with people about politics. But this has been weighing on my mind for months now, and I am deciding to post it. For all of those who can hopefully answer my questions, this is for you.
To start, let’s talk about Obama Care. I don’t know everything about it. However, I have done my research. As goes for everything that I can see, Obama Care is only making it harder for Trevor and I to afford it. Here’s the situation. Trevor is self-employed. When I got a quote for the most basic health insurance coverage, it came back at about $350/month! And that is BEFORE ObamaCare. I truly feel like this plan is making middle-class people become a lot more poor. And it saddens me. Second, I read a quote that talked a lot about how Christians are supposed to give to the poor. And if we don’t do that our taxes and other forms of income, we aren’t considered Christians. I am all for giving and helping through people out. However, when we are forced, that is not okay with me. And when people do nothing, sit on their butt all day and don’t work on getting a job, I have a problem helping people who don’t try. Are there legit circumstances where people deserve to be placed on welfare? Absolutely. Third, I saw on Facebook some “facts” about welfare. One of them was “The majority of families who leave the welfare system do so after a relatively short period of time – about half leave within a year; 70 percent within two years and almost 90 percent within five years.” Now, I don’t know if that is true or not. However, as far as I’m concerned, I can think of 8 people off the top of my head that have been on welfare (and completely abusing the system) for over three years. Fourth, I read the Presidents speech four years ago. A part of it said, “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits – either now or in the future.” (cited from Whitehouse.gov) Okay, that is GREAT Obama. If you actually stood by that. From obamacarefacts.com, they say that Obamacare will cost between 3% and 9.5% of our income. Helloooo! That’s a heck of a lot more than I’m paying. Liar much?
Here’s where you come in. I would absolutely LOVE to understand how Obama Care is helping my family. Every single thing I read about Obama Care has no way of protecting my husband, my future kids, and myself. I feel like it’s the opposite of a blessing. And I’m just wondering, to all those who are for it….HOW IS THIS HELPING ME? I don’t want to cause arguments at all. I would love if people could speak simple English since I’m not the smartest political person on the planet. Cited sources are always the best, and when the sources are legitimate and not biased, that’s when I’ll believe them. I appreciate everybody’s answers. And I love you all. Long time.
