I have had the opportunity to listen to others voice their concerns regarding affordable healthcare, disability, and the raising of minimum wages. I listen attentively because I have already pointed out what others seem to ignore. The Affordable Healthcare business isn’t that darn affordable, applying for disability will give more health issues waiting, minimum wage has never been raised!!!
It’s a game… Once they give it watch everything doubles in prices so, many stay below the poverty line with every raise!
The middle class and small business owners suffer considerably with decisions. Trying to stay in a certain bracket in order to classified in one place or the other so you can qualify what they can afford.
The stories keep pouring in about how some insurance providers take you but then drop you. The horror stories about this isn’t being talked about.
I have to be frank about what I thought about … all of it,. I THOUGHT WHAT ARE WE SO EXCITED OVER??? We are going backwards with administration . The health insurance is a rip off it… It’s too high!!! If you had a decent nest egg you will be eating meat-less soups and a few crackers. I am not with what the government has been proposed as a good ideas. It’s not what is in our faces that will hurt us…it’s what’s on the back burning in the distant future. If budget crisis are everywhere and there are no secure places of employment degree or no degree. We are in some trouble!
And it blows my mind how people go along with stuff and applaud junk! There are some catches we are not catching.
The decisions that someone make either someone must cutback in order to make what can be affordable or go to work full throttle and pay the fine. I wasn’t impressed! On the minimum wage… I just want you think about this people… How are you getting a break when everything goes up the minute you get the break? Isn’t it funny how they always appear that they listening to the demands of the people and then the bottoms falls up… Increases… But this never seems to amaze me.
Filing for the disability in this country is almost a joke! I have told people of the struggles of filing when you are ill and the all foolishness to prove that you are ill with encyclopedia size files with medication and you still will have to see some of their quack physicians.
In fact, I know people who have gotten their disability by playing like they are mentally ill. When I see the struggles of what is right and wrong in this country. I know some of the government priorities federal and state… is jacked up! Some things this country tends to over look and come with those irritating patriotic rebuttals. Yet, our people are hurting and struggling and we need to fix it NOW… The system in this country is designed for you to fail. How can anyone remain debt free if there is always a way to fall into debt? We need some new blood in government. All the career politicians needs to go… especially in Illinois.
It’s the pits!
They haven’t made a different to me… All of them are people friendly during election time… Unless there is a freshness you wont get my vote no matter what party you represent. Comfortably and this lack of drive to help people today has already proven itself to me on my watch. Which way they voted doesn’t impress me. If you are for the people its time to come out from among them and be separated!

I want honest answers about something that I am asked a lot lately by the working people.
I appreciate President Obama for trying to get us “affordable health care insurance”…But from where I am standing and many others … It’s offered but is it that affordable?
We got different people trying to market insurance telling others to get on board with this Insurance Act…But they are not in your household facing the trouble you are facing! It’s very easy for people who don’t have the struggles to tell people what they can afford.
Many poor people are still faced with no real change or with what has “honestly” changed? I am hearing hard-working people still face with more hardship. So, I have to ask what is wonderful about what he is doing if people who can’t find decent jobs, and education is so expensive. The State of Illinois finances are so jacked up, and it’s not that the people take a “vow” of poverty…The truth is, they can’t escape it!!!
For the sake of argument…Just say even if the minimum wage is higher … where is the benefit if there are always increases? You wont see that much change ! I think many people have a false sense of what the struggles of the people really are. If they can barely put food on the table…
How can they afford the insurance? Stop penalizing folks who lack education if they can’t even afford it! Student loans are off the meter and we can’t even guarantee our college graduates jobs. We are not keeping it real! If you can afford what has been laid before you…God Bless You! But for the real people who everything works in the house including the family dog! This “ain’t” working…Excuse my vernacular!
I don’t think people love the term being poor. I can’t give congratulation on something I feel very strongly has been questionable from the very beginning.
And yes, I was one who voted for him… But I am not understanding what the number 7 million”really” going to mean? I worked for a major insurance company in Chicago. The numbers are impressive but I want to see how many will stay with the their Carriers!
For all of you who are so in love with President Barack Obama and can’t seem to challenge or question what he is doing. Personally I am a little dismayed with how this so-called “affordable health care” was suckered on the people.
Please stop getting offended when others don’t quite agree to what is apparently an issue for so many. At first I was one of them, who was applauding the effort to get it started but unless someone can show me something better… Its sounds like another “ruse”.
Others have the right to disagree! No one has to be grateful for more struggling. I have heard some horror stories regarding what choices people will have to make to have health care insurance it’s not that CHEAP and for many it’s not that darn affordable!
At first I thought it was me… but I had to do my homework on this one. I challenge anyone to ask people who have got aboard this health care insurance disaster…Just how deep they have to dig? That much haven’t change folks! I want each and everyone to have great health care insurance but I am beginning to “doubt” even more this so-called Affordable Insurance Act!
