10. No, been mostly unemployed for many years now.


Still trying to get a step ahead again, but the economy just isn't there yet.

Why is that important to this discussion?

I have no intention of remaining unemployed so this will effect me sooner or later. And for the part-time, temp jobs I've had on and off over the past 5 five years, none had insurance available, and still wouldn't under the new rules with fewer than the required employees.

I've also not used any type of medical care in since the early 90s. Not a ER, not primary care, nothing. Now I realize that isn't going to continue forever, but forcing me to pay a private company that may or may not choose to insure whatever I'm going to need isn't the answer. Adding a middleman increases costs for the user, medicare for all, and a higher tax is the only thing that makes sense. Mandating a corporations profit on my back, when I get back on my feet, isn't acceptable to me.
