Big Boy’s Views on Obama’s Health Care Plan
I cannot decide if I like this Obama health care thing or not. It would be awesome if I could get health insurance based on my taxes.
I work two part-time jobs and put in about 45 hours per week (so I am working over full-time). Yet, I feel like I am penalized by not getting benefits or paid vacations. However, if the government forces me to pay money that I do not have, and charge me an insane deductible, then I would rather just let time fight any illness I have.
I will admit I do not know or understand a lot about this “Affordable Health Care Act” but I know what is affordable to me, and even $20 could make or break me. I also know there are many people in my situation – people who work hard but have not always been dealt the right cards.
I would love to say that I make a great salary and life is great, but the truth is, I live paycheck to pay check. I love both of my jobs, and if I can continue to do what I love, as well as have the comfort of knowing that if I become ill that I will not fall even further into debt over a flawed system, then God bless Obama.
As big as I am, I have been very lucky to not have any life threatening health issues. I have been to the hospital a few times, but not for anything serious. It scares me because one of these days, something terrible could happen, and if the time comes where it is either go to the hospital and receive a $5,000 bill or just die – I would probably just chose death.
I have looked into getting health care provided by the state, and even that system seems flawed. In order to get Indiana H.I.P you have to have a child, and for Medicaid you have to be declared disabled. So to have health care I either have to not work or have a child. That is not fair.
I know a lot of people are claiming this is unconstitutional and like I said, I do not know a whole lot about it, but from what I have read – I am for it.
It is nice that they have a bill to help people like me.
So, if I get insurance – you can say good-bye to Big Boy and hello to Skinny Boy. Gastric Bypass here I come!
