Health care should be completely free or no more than $20 a month for incomes under 50k/year

Who agrees with me? The rich should just pay more. It is not fair that I have to pay $307 a month for basic bronze healthcare, which is more than a basic car payment. I can't afford my bills anymore. I used to hate people who go off the books to get free benefits, but now I understand why they do it.

I regret signing up. I should have just taken the fine. Sorry to sound like I'm wining, but with rent and everything it hurts.

When will texting become acceptable professionally?

A business just called me and left a voicemail. Which has got me thinking. How long do you think it will be before businesses (such as doctor's appointments, credit card companies, etc.) start texting instead of calling? Some of you might say never, but keep in mind all of the things in the past that were once looked at as unfavorable. I say 15 years.
