I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.

that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.

I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!

Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

It’s not paying extra for people in need that bothers us. It’s paying extra for all those that take advantage. People we see having kids just for the sake of getting money and assistance from the government. People with three kids, never had a job in their lives, free babysitters, and who spend their days selling drugs and buying $500 worth of government food stamps on pop and junk food to have a party. People that only take and never help fund the assistance that gets handed to them. I work two jobs for over 65 hours a week with no kids and no debt, but I still can barely afford rent and food. I do not qualify for assistance and watching other people that don’t even try to help themselves is why I am angry with our government assistance and healthcare programs.

Well, if you’re watching people defraud the system, why aren’t you doing anything about it? They’re the people making it difficult for those who need help to get help.

Here’s some helpful links:

Not unless these are just anecdotes you’ve seen online and heard about your mother’s best friend’s cousin’s hairdresser’s son’s girlfriend… Then you’re just spreading ignorant classism and that’s just rude.

Or instead of being mad at the mythical welfare kings and queens, be mad at the people who’ve rigged the system in such a manner that you’re working 65+ hours plus a week and not getting by. I guarantee it’s not the people subsisting on measly SNAP allotments. Also, if you Google a little, you’ll find the incidents of abuse much lower in these social programs than in other government programs.

Gawd people spout off some stupid shit. I would bet my house that next to no one is sitting around popping out kids to get on government assistance. It pays out so little, there is no way someone would willingly exist like that. Besides the fact that you can’t fucking buy pop or junk food with food stamps or WIC. Why does America hate poor people SO MUCH? It’s just sick. That’s our “Christian” nation for you.

Yeah, even if fraud were rampant, I’d still want my limited tax dollars to go to the social safety net on the off chance that it catches someone who desperately needs it.

But it’s not rampant, and this argument is basically: “I’d love to snatch food from hungry kids’ mouths because I think their mothers are drug addled trollops and their fathers are living it up on SNAP. Therefore, if the parents are shit, the children (who have no choice in the matter) must be punished to the fullest extent my selfishness will allow.”

If you see people living the high life on welfare (which I guarantee is not happening) and you’re so damn resentful, why don’t you quit your job and go on assistance too? Maybe because deep down, you fucking KNOW it’s not happening and it’s much easier to demonize poor people instead of challenging the social conditions that allow intergenerational poverty to thrive.
