I can't deal with people today.

Not agreeing with Obamacare is your opinion.
Thinking it's the worst thing to happen in a country that has killed and bought/sold people like livestock makes you an asshole.

And let me be exceptionally clear.. people aren't calling you an asshole because you are a republican.
PEOPLE ARE CALLING YOU AN ASSHOLE BECAUSE YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE
Seriously.

The next person to walk into the pharmacy I work at that's closing and says "Oh, it's because of Obamacare right?" I'm going to scream.

No, it's not.

It's because of people like you that are coming in right now for clearances after not coming in for years because you went to mail order or because that Walgreens was 30 seconds closer to your house.

It's because the drug companies and insurance companies are in bed together.

It's because big box store pharmacies don't make any money, price themselves low enough to put the independents out of business because they know the people shopping while they wait will make up everything they loose in the pharmacy part.

It's because of people being more than happy to come in and take an hour of my time while I help you one on one to come up with a solution for your elderly parents to have you turn around and say "thanks, I'll go buy that online."

You know what Obamacare does do? It gives me insurance and allowed me to buy drugs from the pharmacy when I was sick.

I don't care WHAT You think about Obama or Obamacare, but stop trying to commiserate with me over things you don't understand and stop trying to blame Obama for everything.

Though, I did trip on the way to work today. THANKS OBAMA.

Exactly this. If it wasn't for the Affordable Care Act, I would have lost insurance 2 years ago. Instead I'm just now losing it, and hopefully (if they ever get my identity verified so I can look at options >.<) I'll only have to go 2 months without insurance.

So, I'm replying to the "Veterinary Assistant Jobs" thread, and I just keep realizing how much I got screwed over and taken advantage of and really practically abused at times, and it's seriously pissing me off. It's been a couple months since I left, but ****, that was SUCH a waste of 7 years. The more I think about it the angrier I get. Like the time he decided that if we worked overtime, he'd just rearrange the days the week started to get rid of the overtime. That went on for YEARS until it was finally set straight...and by that time the overtime pay I had lost was gone for good.

I'm so glad I'm out of there.

Just want to chime in and say that my insurance offered at work has had a premium increase, out of pocket increase, deductible increase, base benefit decrease in addition to a tax for having it. I'm not enjoying what I am experiencing as part of the ACA.

I'm all for having affordable health care for all but it really sucks that I have to pay more out of pocket. If I get sick and have to go in the hospital - I am going to be financially responsible for more than I would have prior to ACA. I don't even know what they've cut out of our coverage yet until I see the benefit book. But that's just the info released far.

I am going to have to drop my and my kids coverage due to premium increases. The kids will go back on medicaid (thank god for that as Calebs meds are thousands a month) And I will now be penalized at tax time because I cant afford to pay the premiums and will now be uninsured.



I dont know what the answer is but this is not working.

Last night I dreamt I was pregnant.

With twins.

I was halfway to work before I simultaneously remembered the dream and realized it was just a dream. Whew.

Have you checked yet if you're eligible for an exemption from the tax penalty? There are TONS of exceptions, and if you make little enough that your kids are on medicaid, you should qualify for an exemption. It's NOT a blanket "No insurance, pay a fee!" type thing at all.


I for one am happy about it because otherwise there's NO WAY I would have insurance next year. My state isn't expanding medicaid, so though I would be eligible for medicaid elsewhere, I'm not in my state. I work part time and my job doesn't offer benefits, so nothing there. And I turn 26 in 2 weeks, so I lose coverage from my parents (I would have lost coverage 2 years ago if it wasn't for the ACA).

My parents' health insurance premiums are going down (and not because I'm no longer covered - my brother is still covered, and the premium is the same for 1 kid or 10 kids).

I think there's a lot of "I have a vague idea of maybe what's happening sort of and I hate Obama so I'm going to dramatize it and rely on rumors instead of actually doing research and finding out the facts" going around everywhere. NOT just Chaz, but EVERYWHERE.

My ACA vent, though, is that it's taking FOREVER to actually sign up for the marketplace. Grrrr. My identity still isn't verified.
