No, they’re not trying to give you money or help you with your taxes. Instead they’re trying to get you to sign up for healthcare.
Here’s the latest email I got today:
Nonetheless, I decided to visit the site again today and see what’s up with my application.
How am I going to pay $218 a month on something? I can barely afford to pay the bills I have now. Here they are:
- Rent - $665
- Power - $170
- Phone - $40
- Internet - $50
- YMCA - $70
- Student Loan - $306
That comes to $1,301 right there. Now, would you like me to add in food? Let’s be conservative and say $75 a week for 4 weeks, huh?
So that puts us up to $1,601 then.
Now, I’m not going to add in any entertainment, any gas, any eating out, or anything else that might contribute to my local economy.
But I will add in this new healthcare cost of $218, which brings me to a grand monthly total for bills and food of $1,819.
How am I supposed to pay that when I make $2,000 to $2,500 a month and support a family of three?
I’m not. I’m not supposed to pay that. And I’m glad, because I have no intention to, just like I have no intention of paying for the most expensive plan, which looks like this:
Thank God I’m smart enough not to willingly put on the shackles of economic slavery. My feet are already chained with student loans; I don’t want my arms to be as well.
How, I ask you, how could I possibly pay that when you’ve saddled me with so much student loan debt that I’ll never stop paying it off?
I’ll pay the mandate, if there is one.
Thank God I did not click ‘Confirm.’ My household could not stand the stress of losing that money each month.
Perhaps if the rich Democrats and Republicans were paying more than 13% in taxes we wouldn’t have these problems.
But that will never happen until this old guard retires or heads to the home or whatever.
You won’t find too many legislative candidates in Montana that make so little but are expected to pay so much. And you won’t find a democrat lambasting this unjust system that unduly burdens our young people and encourages them to leave the state.
Health care in America and Montana is a joke, and I’m proud to say I’m not paying for it – you’ve given me no choice.
