What a wonderful enlightened world we live in. Many thanks to Matt Walsh for putting this compilation together. People need to be aware of the real human cost. For some reason, the Affordable Car Act has left millions of Americans out of work, out of money, out of options, and still unable to afford what used to be basic healthcare.
It used to be an option to just do without what you cannot afford. Now if we try to do without, we are fined for our trouble. They will get you either way. Unless you actually quit trying to make ends meet, give up attempting to maintain a legitimate income, you will be hounded for everything you have. I've been saying for a while that the real collapse won't come until the average American realizes he has nothing left to lose. This could very well be the final ruin of the middle-class.
In the words of Emily from Iowa:
Recently our 2 year-old daughter had an ear infection. Went to the doc, got a prescription for an antibiotic. Went to the pharmacy to fill said prescription. I was expecting it to cost around 5 dollars because that’s what it cost the last time we had it filled. Wrong. It now costs 75 dollars. I paid 75 dollars for an antibiotic that used to cost us 5 dollars. When I asked the pharmacist, “Why the huge increase?” She replied, “Obamacare. And this is just the beginning.”For more stories which will be detrimental to your blood-pressure, follow the link to The Matt Walsh Blog. I read each and every one. We're still covered by military health insurance, and I dread the day we'll have to face off with Obamacare. With any luck, maybe we could join one of those religious co-ops if they're still exempt. Shoot, at this point I'm considering settling in on welfare in an attempt to pull the whole edifice down sooner. If we all give up at once, maybe we could just burn this administration to the ground and start from scratch.
This is one of the very few things that can make me stop and think, "Thank God we don't have kids."
America is essentially dead. What on earth do we have now?
- Also, if you aren't put off by a bit of crude humor, see what Jon Stewart had to say about the unqualified disaster that was just the Obamacare website. I love a dark and cynical laugh now and then.
