I don’t eat ice cream from Ben and Jerry’s, though if Lizzy Warren’s healthcare plan goes into effect, and 2 million people lose their jobs, maybe Ben and Jerry’s will hire them at the same salary that they made when they were working in healthcare.
Then again, it’s not about healthcare, it’s about power over YOU and over your life.
In about a year, I will be of an age where I will be required to file for Medicare. (link)
Even if I am happy with my present healthcare arrangements, the government will FORCE me into their medicare healthcare web.
You don’t have to sign up for Medicare. The catch? If you don’t enroll when you’re first eligible, you will be subject to serious financial penalties later in life. Why does the government do these things? Why do they want to FORCE me into their program when I’m willing to pay my own way? They counter with, “but LL, it’s FREE!”
Socialism depresses me.
The Warren Healthcare Plan will require a 48% payroll tax (more here). And then there are all of the other ‘free’ programs that she wants to offer to the mooches to induce them to vote for her.
