“Affordable” Care: Irony at Its Finest

According to Politico, celebrities are tweeting to their followers to sign up for healthcare before today’s looming deadline hits.

Apparently celebrities, in their infinite wealth, do not understand that many Americans simply cannot afford health insurance anymore. Forcing people to buy something they cannot afford or simply do not want is both stupid and typical of the U.S. government in general. But alas, I repeat myself. Where else but in America can we take away someone’s voluntarily agreed upon health plan because it does not meet bureaucratic approval, and then force the same individual to purchase a more expensive healthcare plan or be fined for not being able to afford the mandated new plan?


I think we can all agree the U.S. healthcare system has some problems that need to be addressed, but the “Affordable” care act appears to come at a cost that figuratively and literally,  few Americans are willing to pay.

  1. Just wanted to state that this reform has saved me money. My health care dropped about 20% after it was put in place. I personally think the implementation we have today is shit for a lot of people. The main problem I see with people not being able to afford healthcare, is that these people tend to be the same people who use the emergency room as their primary care physician. Bottom line, only two things are certain in life: death and taxes. … and you can expect to get sick before death and pay someone else’s bills with your hard earned tax money.

    • I haven’t heard too many people saying that it is saving them money so far; you are one of the more fortunate ones in that aspect. On the flip side, I completely agree with you on death and taxes.
