Mike and I have been limping along, getting health insurance subsidies through the Affordable Care Act, for the past few years. There’s no way we could have afforded the four or five thousand bucks a month our health insurance would have cost without Obamacare. Soon I will qualify for Medicare and I’m so glad!
Last year was an amazingly EXPENSIVE year for me health-wise. Between a number of cat scans, a pet scan and a lung biopsy, along with so many medical tests I can’t count them all, I cost my insurance company a pretty penny. Now my health has stabilized a bit, but with lung nodules you never know. That is why I don’t understand those who hate Obamacare. Have they ever tried it?
Without the Affordable Care Act we might be bankrupt by now. We never choose to become seriously ill, and it almost always takes us by surprise. That is why I support health care for all, without the irritation of working through a health insurance company that does not have my interests at heart. How can that be a bad thing when the insurance company are making so much money on our illnesses and misfortunes?
I say take the health insurance companies out of the equation and provide access to health care for every American. If every other developed country in the world can figure this one out, why can’t we?

True words. If this rich country can afford to give the banks money interest free…we can afford to pay for health care for all of us. The money is ours, not the government’s. We should take control of how it is spent.
You are so right Marquita! It’s our money. Let’s spend it to make OUR LIVES BETTER!
PS: I love the photos you post.
Health care is such a mess—I agree! Wishing you a healthy 2020. (Glad I found your blog!)
Welcome Talya! Surely we can do much better than this!
