I have been a registered voter since I was old enough to vote. I have intentionally never voted just to screw with the polls. The first time in my life that I ever voted was my single vote for Trump. I personally think he is out of his mind. But he keeps his hand out of my paycheck. Obamma care made me pay $600 a year because I wasn't lazy or entitled enough to qualify for a handout. I paid $600 penalty a year because I couldn't afford $400 a month for health care. Call it whatever you want. Im just a politically ignorant blue collar tax payer. My Prius driving tree hugging next door neighbor blames everything on the insurance companies. There is likely much truth to that. But who took bribes from the insurance companies to pass laws that fit their agenda. Politicians. Which ones? Obviously Obamma golfed with a few of the insurance companies share holders or CEOs. But I digress.
I was in a similar situation a few years ago with my then girlfriend.....forced to buy insurance for her because we weren’t married yet and she couldn’t be covered under mine. So the Obama administration was more than capable or penalizing those who tried. Now, if you had employee provided insurance I could see this not being an issue which I did but she didn’t. Where I’m from that insurance mandate was a huge blow, people who couldn’t afford were now forced to afford it, WTF?
I’m enjoying Trumps approach to business right now, it should prove interesting in the next couple years to see what comes of it. I was to the point at the end of the Obama administration I would have given about anyone a chance, we’d had the same political agenda for years running and it wasn’t working, you’d be a fool to say it was.
Am I the only one who doesn’t really care if the crazy Russians meddled in the crazy Americans election? Seems to me that’s just crying over spilled milk, the facts are there that the Clintons hands aren’t clean either so to me it’s a wash and we thankfully didn’t have 4 more years of government freebies.
