Introducing the Unaffordable Uncaring Act

“AAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!! Health insurance. Unaffordable Uncaring Act. I was patiently looking for the perfect job…I think I must begin looking for any job….” ~ cc

I read these words, written by one of the most optimistic persons I know in the entire world, and I am most confident that we the American people have been duped again.

Can’t we call these people’s mamas and tattle on them? It works with Sheldon. We should have listened to the Skipperdees,

“And those men wearing suits, they don’t oft tell the truth.”

Folks, this comes as a surprise but it appears our government does not have our backs (say it isn’t so). I’m thinking it best to quit thinking they are doing anything for our benefit (sacrebleu). They are obviously out for themselves, red and blue alike (and any other colors found in DC), right along with all the power they can grab. It has become apparent that their human natures are no different than mine (yikes, how’d we let them in office?)… greed and selfishness dominating their every thought and action (with the authority to do something about it by the way).

A word of advice from the powers be: “Live with it, punk. We no care that you no like”

Curiosity led me to try out the calculator and see what the unaffordable plan would cost my family (cool beans). Try it for yourself (I mean when it’s operational… keep trying… keep trying… KEEP TRYING!). The plan available to my family would only be twice what I pay currently (what a deal), with no offer of rebate or assistance. And oh yeah, as a special incentive, the deductible goes up too (3 cheers).

So then I wonder, “How long before my current provider realizes they’re not charging me nearly enough?” “AAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!” ~ which is no doubt cc’an for dagnabbit all!

  1. The last verse in Judges says, “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” 21:25 It is very hard to think a nation with it’s humble beginning…not perfect, but obviously in the plan of God, declared itself independent from the tyranny of an earthly king, only loyal to God, devoted to whatever direction it’s leaders think is right in their own eyes to rule the day. Socialized medicine is in line along with a long stream of bad decisions made by ungodly men and women “we the people” have given authority to make. I see my own decisions have become so earthly and materialistic that too often I do what seems right to me without seeking God’s direction. Immorality is a result of our turning away from God to follow after baals we have created. Like Israel, we are exiled from the truth, whoring after pleasure.
    Michael, what do we think we should receive from God when we disregard Him, as a nation? Prayer is needed, but not for God to change America alone, but us individually, in repentance. Until we “believers” repent, there is little chance the nation will. (2 Chron.7:14-15) Sadly, most believers do not know what they believe. Sorry to use your page as a soapbox. Thanks for another stimulating post.

      Inspiring comment Keith. You are very right. My own heart should be my immediate concern, and my prayers that we who are called by His name will turn from our wicked ways. Very well said good friend, that we will all see the truth you share. Blessings… and the soapbox is always open for you here. 🙂

  2. As you know, I’m not an American, and I don’t understand much about your politics but from what I’ve read the health system is a shocker.

  3. Also frustrating…because of the requirements of the act…even if you stay with your insurance, it still goes up! (at least that was the case for us and for several people I know)

    • mtsweat says:

      True. This is what I’m hearing from many. Prayers and blessings for you and yours and all of those negatively affected. It seems much more thought needs to go into the effort of providing healthcare to the masses, and that it should probably stay in the hands of the private sector where pricing and service quality is determined by demand, not by a band of kings and queens who have lost all contact with the common people. 🙂

  4. Who’s to say Obama isn’t God’s judgment on America? Sure prayer can change things, but if America keeps funneling downward into immoralty, its probably only going to get worse.

    • mtsweat says:

      Thank you for saying this good friend. It needs to be heard. While I’m not one to jump on board with those who seem to be able to dictate God’s actions, it is pretty clearly spelled out in Scripture exactly how God functions among the nations (all of them, not just Israel). When a nation suppresses the existence of God and His rule, by whatever actions but definitely including immorality, nothing less than judgment should be expected. It should also be remembered that the worst of judgments in the here and now is to be turned over to one’s own lusts. Good thoughts you encourage.

    We the People can change this through PRAYER! When Israel was held in slavery in Egypt, God heard their pleas and planned an escape route, thus we have the Great Exodus. It is time for us to cry out to God to have mercy upon us all! Thank you for sharing this. Blessings.

    Trying to be thankful…so… I am thankful that…our government is now so ineptly wasteful that we cannot possibly get as much government intrusion, errrrr, I mean oversight, as we are forced to pay for. Yep. I’m thankful for that. And…I’m thankful that government rests upon the shoulders of a Child that was born to us, a Son who was given.

  7. TikkTok says:

    We are in the same boat. Who can realistically pay $10, 000 out of pocket for a deductible before insurance kicks in? $5, 000 deductible for medication?

    And all this while paying a $1, 000 monthly premium? We’d never meet it until unless something catastrophic happened. And it still wouldn’t be affordable.

    The same coverage for 2014 were over $200 a month higher than the same coverages in 2013. And, the 2014 deductibles exploded.

    More money for less benefit for a plan that can’t be paid for = we are screwed.

    I’m glad there people like you out there, volunteering for identity theft so the rest of us can know how bad it is. Strike bad and replace with all the negatives you can think of. I know what’s in now , Nancy, can we repeal it now?
