Bitch and Moan Monday


Ya know, LDs, I'm feeling surprisingly good today. It was a very busy day for me. As far as it being Bitch and Moan Monday...

I'm not going to comment on the passing of the Health Care Bill. There will inevitably be someone I offend, and whilst I normally don't care, my mumsy made an incredibly good point this evening on the phone.

"I make less than $15,000 a year. Everyone's going to be required to have health care, and if you don't, you'll be fined. How in the blue fuck (a.n. - yeah, she said that) am I supposed to afford the fines if I can't afford the plan?"

I was in a heated discussion this afternoon on FB with people I knew from college, and I seemed to be right in the middle of an both an extreme Liberal and an equally extreme Conservative (I think I contemplated hari kari at one point; it got that heated). I'm a bit confused on the whole point. I have health insurance through work. Does that mean I still have to buy into the government's plan?

Sorry, Kish. There's not much I want to B&M about today.

O! When I got home from PT, Mr Realist had emptied the dishwasher and refilled it! Yay!

Heepwah, and be safe out there.

Your relaxed

  1. Um, hello, you don't have to apologize, I had NOTHING to bitch about. It's lame version day!:) I'm not very thrilled about said plan because we already pay out of our asses for our own health insurance, and even though it costs a fortune, it covers not a lot. We make way too much money on paper to qualify for any subsidies or a better deal, but on paper make enough to be in a higher tax bracket, so basically my hard working husband is going to be funding health insurance for other assholes! Yay!

    Shit, and I actually used to be a liberal...I've been married to a republican for too long:)

  2. Whilst we both have insurance through our respective jobs, it's rather craptastic as well. I will admit: Mr Realist doesn't have to pay for it (his job does), and I only have to pay half.

    Join the club on being married to a Republican - I'm more Independent :)
    But I agree - I shouldn't be paying for everyone else's insurance (and food stamps and cars and smokes and everything else). Isn't is fabulous?


Be safe out there.
