About Me

Angry and tired. And tired of being angry. Still in The Struggle.

Looking for a graphic someone posted yesterday as a response in a thread about ACA.

It was set up like a flow chart. Had something about exemptions for low income people. Anyone have any idea what graphic I'm thinking of? I tried to recall its salient points to my boyfriend but got tangled up in details half-remembered.

Thanks in advance!

My response to my fundie cousin's fb petition to repeal ACA:

It will save the country money and contribute to the public health. You won't be paying to bail out hospitals because poor people wait until they're desperate to go to a doctor and the only doctor available is at an emergency room. Also, less chance of epidemics spreading because again, poor people will get preventative healthcare (less expensive than emergency care) before infecting everyone with their illness. All other first world countries offer socialized healthcare, this isn't even socialized - it's paying into the private sector. As such, it will create more jobs in the private sector. Final point I'd like to make: this makes our country more Christian since Christ was big on giving comfort to the poor and healing the sick.

How much are you paying for gas?

I just drove from Colorado to Michigan to Massachusetts and back again. Gas prices ranged from $3.21 (Missouri) to $3.89 (Colorado). Both Mass and Michigan averaged around $3.60. I'm paying $3.60 in my corner of Colorado, but that's at an independent station with lower than average local prices most of the time.

So just as a point of interest - what are you paying, and where?
