I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
What gross people whine about taxes helping other humans be healthy
Yeah i am definitely not a fan of looking at my paycheck, and seeing that $75-80 has been deducted from my paycheck. That is literally a day and a half that i worked for free, to pay for your prescription. Now, i understand taxes are a thing, but when my paycheck is taxed, and every little thing i purchase on a daily basis is taxed, you have to understand why i don’t support that crap. I work 5-6 days a week, full time, on minimum wage, and basically work one of those days(or more) for no pay
Why don’t you use it??? Then that day of pay will go towards your health. I seriously don’t understand Americans. Being looked after is really nice.
Seriously, I had 84.80 in taxes deducted from my most recent paycheck, and I’m super ok with that. Because having a health system in place where I can go into any hospital or clinic any time I’m sick or I hurt myself is fucking worth it.
Everyone I know here in Canada has NO ISSUE with that shit being taken off their paycheque so they can go get their physical’s done, broken limbs fixed, illnesses looked after (tonsillitis, chickenpox, throat infections, sinus infections, allergies, asthma, vitamin deficiencies, bronchitis, the fucking flu, food poisoning, diabetes, etc etc etc) or when emergencies happen (cancer, heart attacks, celiac disease etc etc) instead of paying out the ass when something happens, going to the doctor just to have them look at you for 5 minutes to write a script for something. Fucking ridiculous what you are complaining about. Your country is like 17 trillion dollars in debt which amounts to more than what the world TOTALLED TOGETHER owes but you’re sitting there bitching and whining about how your taxes are paying for people to get taken care of, instead of wondering why your taxes are going to these futile and useless wars and troops being oversea’s and your country that costs the citizens BILLIONS and BILLIONS of your dollars to wage wars on EVERYTHING including it’s own citizens, and is actually, what most of your fucking taxes cover. Instead of going back to your quality of life.
But no. You’re going to sit there and make some asinine comment on how some one who NEEDED health care, got it for free at your expense. GOD FORBID your government actually spends some of that money it takes from you to spend on the quality of life of it’s citizens, instead of waging wars, making you pay assloads of money for shitty education, and making you PAY MORE while they sit there and tell the wealthy “oh don’t worry, you won’t have to pay a whole lot. The rest of the suckers under you will pay FOR you instead.” I mean, does any one remember when the BANKS GOT BAILED OUT and none of the big executives that CAUSED the recession went to jail? This isn’t even touching the amount your government fritters away on petty bullshit, protecting it’s wealthy elite while telling you who to be mad at - the poor, disenfranchised and maligned groups. And you like a fucking dumb lap dog, did exactly that. Made some asshole, asinine comment to someone who needed heathcare instead of you know. Getting angry at people who are fucking stealing your money for nothing and putting you further and further into fucking debt.
I would be livid with rage right now, but you are so pathetically fucking stupid it actually hurts me.
Ignorant Americans just got told by a Canadian, y’all. And it was beautiful.
"We’d been having a sort of tacit conversation about it for a couple years. Then one day, his sister, who already knew, was teasing him about having a crush on a boy at school. And I heard him say: ‘Well, maybe it’s true!’ So I said: ‘Son, we’ve never really talked about this. Are you gay?’ And even though he was 6’4”, he came over to me, curled up in my lap and just sobbed and sobbed. It was one of the most beautiful moments of my life, actually.”
