The Supreme Court upheld the new healthcare bill, so it’s about time that people actually learn what the hell is in it. For starters, it is not a tax increase on small business. For any business with less than 50 employees, this law will not affect them whatsoever. Companies that employ more than 50 people are required to provide insurance, and at this point almost every company of that size already offers a health plan. So it’s a non-issue. The law insures an additional 30 million Americans through an expansion of Medicaid, and it requires everyone to purchase at least some type of health insurance.
The individual mandate is necessary and reasonable because everybody already has access to a hospital when they are injured. Why shouldn’t they pay for it? Just like social security, younger Americans who are healthy should pay into the system to support the aging population of baby-boomers. It’s common sense, not a socialist government conspiracy. Under the new legislation, kids can remain on their parents’ policy until the age of 26. It also prevents insurance companies from denying someone coverage due to a pre-existing condition. These provisions are all popular despite the bullshit rhetoric you hear from your asshole friends.
In fact, this is not a government takeover at all. It requires people to buy insurance from insurance companies, not the government. When people say it is a government takeover, they are lying to you. And if you believe it, then you are a fucking moron. Stop watching reality TV shows about dumb cunt housewives and read a fucking newspaper. This bill is not popular because in America being knowledgeable on current events is not popular. Nobody reads anymore. Instead they believe whatever some asshole on TV or talk radio tells them to believe. If you can’t think for yourself and you don’t know what is going on in the world, then stop talking, stop voting, and stop having kids.
Adults in this country have no idea how government works. They believe the president has dictatorial powers over everything, and they have no idea what role the Congress plays. Ignorant white trash douchebags believe to their core that every tax dollar goes directly to scheming blacks who are living large off of government subsidies. Otherwise intelligent and successful people actually believe this shit. It’s a joke. People who don’t read or follow current events need to shut the fuck up.
