6. Not going to be easy for us if they gut O-care and replace it with the mess they passed today.

May 2017

I am self-employed. No serious preexistings, but my insurance is already sky high. Sigh. It is sad to be forced to leave an entrepreneurial job where I earn good money and create value for the community because I can't afford it anymore because of HEALTH INSURANCE! But that is where I am heading.

This is why red states fail. They punish their creative class so we take our skills and and go pay taxes in places where we are appreciated. Sick of having my taxes taken, my votes stolen and nothing in return except insults. Fuck it. It gets really old. And fuck the state leaders who get GREAT state health insurance but screw me on mine.

So much worse for those on a fixed income who lack the resources to leave or find other employment. Those people will suffer more than necessary. Some will die.
