I’ve been living under a rock the last few months. I’ve missed a lot in the news.
Today someone asked me about the new health care that passed today. I had no freaking clue what he was talking about, which totally made me feel awkward and a little dirty. Well I felt dirty cause my fly was open. Don’t read into that, it is what it is.
I come home and my wife starts chatting me up about it. Then on the social media chains I start getting pinged for comments. So to be honest, I have no clue about this until I had someone shoot me the summary.
USA…. you’re screwed. I don’t know if you know the sheer volume of free loaders that burden the system with unpaid charges. In the fire service alone, it is not uncommon for me to respond to a “patient” that just needs to make their doctors visit. That, USA, is just my tiny intsy bitsy part of the world. I was hearing on the radio, that Austin (The capital of Texas), 4 people alone racked up 10 million dollars in medical bills. 4 people….4 homeless people that, to my knowledge are not effected by the 1% tax for lack medical insurance. Maybe I am reading this wrong and honestly I haven’t put a great deal of reading time into this but on the surface I’m thinking “OUCH”.
Can small town, USA afford the extra tax your emergency service districts are going to be forced to charge? Where a great deal of the poor people in question move? I don’t know, just my thoughts. It seems like it was a rush job to me. I’m going to bed after this beer and shaking my head the entire time.
