I really debated posting this because I don't want to stir up any political drama but I finally decided I could write a blog in a decent manner and then be done with it.
So we all pretty much know that the Supreme Court has upheld the new healthcare changes created by President Obama based on then notion that it is a new tax.
Starting in 2014, anyone who doesn't have health insurance will be fined between $600-$1200 a year. That's right, a year. I'm not sure if most of the minorities who are behind Obama know just how detrimental this will be to those minorities who are unemployeed or who work at low-paying jobs. This will seriously effect our soceity in ways that most people may not have even pondered. Unemployment is still a very big problem in this country. Sure we are told that there will be programs to help cover some of the expenses but it will NEVER be a 100% free financial aid.
I know many people who are unemployeed, who work at very low-paying jobs, or who work temporary jobs where having health care insurance is simply not something that can be afforded at this time.
So President Obama, I feel you have turned your back on the lower-class and the minorities, in favor of the wealthy elite, the people who will truly benefit from these implimented changes. For this you have lost my vote. I do realize that you will probably win reelection simply because most of your supporters in the public still don't seem to realize how your health care changes will effect them. I do forsee a massive change come 2014 when many minorities finally realize that this form of healthcar change is not what we need as a country. For now, my only hope is to pray and put my energy into having the Republicans win back the majority and to have a Republican President in officie so that this nonsense can be repealed. Did I mention that I'm a Democrat? It hurts me to wish this but it must be done so that this nonsense can be cleared up.
