Chronic illness creates poverty, which in turn, makes functioning with chronic illness very difficult. ObamaCare won’t pay for my meds or my doctor, I have to pay UP FRONT out of my pocket. The “Medicaid Expansion” is a myth, unless you live in a state with lots of extra $$$ to pay for new recipients – heard of one? My state is adding 0 new people to Medicaid.
My chronic illness is not on the LIST that qualifies for permanent disability with Social Security. Those lawyers running ads promising a monthly check are looking for specific loopholes, and I’m not one.
If you have dependent children, you get EVERYTHING: housing subsidy, health care for entire household, free abortions (for moms who can’t get more money for popping out another), tutoring, cell phone, utilities, transportation, grants, scholarships, etc. and can legally earn up to $31,700 per year with 4 children**, still be at “poverty level” and thus eligible. That’s why so many unwanted children are growing up in U.S., they are a cash cow for bad mamas. No wonder by the time they reach puberty they are dealing drugs, shooting up the streets, or producing more unwanted children. By their late teens they are overwhelming law enforcement, courts, and prisons. Democrats are to blame, for building this huge incentive system to reward people who behave like monsters. Look at that table and imagine being a single household, paying everything: rent, food, transportation, health care, medicine, yet not being considered in poverty unless earning below $1000/month!
Have you always heard that Medicaid is run by the states, and so not subject to federal guidelines? That’s how they sell it, but not how it works. If a state accepts federal health care funds of ANY KIND, they must follow federal guidelines. All states do. You can have an income of $1 a month and not be eligible for MEDICAID, unless you fall into one of 6 categories.
- under 18
- 65 or older
- on Social Security permanent disability
- have dependent children
If you are an illegal in the U.S., you get free emergency care. If you are a foreigner just visiting and have to “suddenly” go deliver your baby, you get both free health care and citizenship for your kids. I just get phone calls labeling me a low-life for not paying for my ER visit. In a foreign country where I lived, 80% of the population had babies born in nearby US territory, so they are US citizens, and when the oldest reaches 18, the whole family can become citizens. MANY stick the US government for the hospital bill. I know, because 3 times a year I sat and listened to the mamas renew U.S. passports for their 5 children of different fathers, admitting they never paid a dime to the hospital because “Medicaid pays for it”. Yet, when I was in the same hospital and had no insurance and could not pay, they didn’t want to let me out the door without some payment, and the collection calls came soon after. Maybe if these foreign mamas did not get free OB services, there would be some help for my ER bill.
What irony, I was born in U.S., worked hard and paid my taxes. I had the misfortune of falling ill with something that could not be cured, but became long term and chronic. Yet, someone who breaks the law by sneaking over the border and works here illegally, or even comes to visit, is treated better by my own government.
Senators & Congressmen, if you give up some of your precious time to serve at a food kitchen, and talk with some of the people taking meals there, you will find that a large number are former hard workers who simply got sick. Their illness began the domino effect of losing job, then insurance, then car, home, etc., and having no dependent children, they could not get a dime of help from Uncle Sam. If this weren’t bad enough, they are belittled by IGNORANT conservatives on radio and television as lazy and good for nothing!
Now that illness has befallen me, people in Washington would just as soon I die in a gutter somewhere while they give amnesty to 20 million new voters who will vote 100% Democrat forever, regardless of the quality of the candidate. They will do no work to be informed, need no brain to think, just be able to find the ass- oops, I mean donkey, at the top of the page. Democrats love such an ignorant, indoctrinated voter and will do or promise anything to get them.
No amount of arguing lofty ideas changes the facts as I’m living them, despite many Americans on both sides of the isles arguing over health care, as if they really know how it works – they don’t! Even if they HAD read the 20,000 pages of Obamacare instead of listening to Nancy P, who said, “We don’t have to read it, just pass it!”, they’d still be ignorant, because it’s built upon the pillars of a system they never did understand. It’s much easier to just label everyone who’s poor and sick as “lazy, unwilling to work, a burden on society”.
So, to restate my point: Democrats are only heartless to those who don’t vote for them! If you don’t, you are welcome to die in a gutter. Republicans will let everyone poor die in the gutter.
