Fascism vs Libertopia

Libertopia, everyman for himself. The exact opposite of community.

Fascism, forced into corporate rule. Oppressed community through force.

Look at it this way, if you think this is a good plan, then you are probably financially stable, so you dont have to worry about it. $80 week? No biggie!!

Berkeley created a calculator for California costs estimates.

Family of 3, two adults at 33 and 31, each one making 25k a year (the national average, a whopping 12.50 an hr) and 10 year old.

Guess what, you got a bill for over $80 a week for shit insurance.

Fuck this garbage. What a fuckin scam.

Wait until the start decreasing benefits and raising rates. Wall St will demand that profits per share stay at a certain rate. Thats the priority, not you.

From http://obamacarefacts.com/obamacare-health-insurance-exchange.php

Qualifying plans MUST include:

"5. Mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment"

So if I dont need to pay for a shrink, doesnt matter? Not that people couldnt all use a bit of mental health help, but wtf? Who the fuck are they to tell us what we have to carry?

"The lower your income, the larger your subsidy. For instance, those making $17,235 a year will pay no more than 4% of income, or $57 a month, while those with incomes between $34,470 and $45,960 will pay a maximum of 9.5% of income, or $364 a month. "

So if yo make $17 an hour, which is about what we are trying to raise the minimum wage to, here's your weekly breakdown:

Total pay: $680

Estimated takehome: $560 (18%)

$364 in payments divided by 4 = $91.00

New take home pay: $451.00

Congrats, you just took a 16% pay cut for shit insurance.

And here is the demoralizing truth....

While these shitheads in Congress put us through all of this, they have the best care on the planet.

And we tolerate it.

"People get the government deserves" isnt always true. With this case it may be.

and 10% of nothing is still nothing

income are wealth differences are such that

tax to the government would benefit the general public

if programs like public healthcare were funded

I pay more to rent, food, bank charges and interest

.

when politicians use the term "taxpayer";

they mean they do not serve the poor
