Pure, unadulterated disgust…that is EXACTLY how I feel right now. I will not edit my comments (except some cuss words – and TRUST ME there are some real doozies floating around in my head right now!).
First of all, I believe that the few idiots (the protesters) who called out racial epithets should have been unceremoniously removed from the grounds. It made me sick to see grown people act in such a racist way in this day and age. All they did was validate people like Janeane Garofalo.
HOWEVER…when the Bitch of the House (warned you…I’m pissed) gathered her minions around her for a photo op, she only exacerbated the situation. Gave credence to the idiots. Nancy, sweetheart, this is NOT Selma.
I am not the kind of person who takes charity easily. I have lived my life as a self-sufficient individual through some very hard times. Many of my readers do not know EVERYTHING about me. I never felt it was necessary. I have survived poverty, molestation, Multiple Sclerosis, domestic violence at the hands of a coward, sub-standard medical treatment during the birth of my daughter (they left medical equipment in me) and stood tall. After all of that, believe it or not, THIS HEALTH CARE BILL scares me.
And don’t you DARE tell me if I read the bill I will like it. Bullshit. I HAVE read everything that has been posted on the internet. I may not have a college degree…yet…but I do have an IQ of 146. Reading comprehension was never a problem. Legalese was just another language I taught myself. I KNOW that when the Government runs out of money to fund the monster they have just created, I will not be a priority. Will I live to see my daughter have her first child? Will I be important enough to spend money on? If I have to go on Medicaid, will I be worth an MRI, a wheelchair? After all, I am almost 50 and disabled.
All I can say is FUCK YOU BARACK OBAMA. I hope you sleep well tonight.
As an addendum to this post, I spent 7 years trying to get Social Security (my money) and finally won my case. I now receive $710 per month, can have tangible assets no greater than a cumulative total of $2,000 or they will take it away. I just had to advise my Neurologist that I can no longer see him because I cannot afford an MRI. Medicaid pays $530 – an MRI costs $2,500. Obamacare’s medical implements “fees” have kicked in and this is just the beginning, folks! Katrina – May 27, 2013
