The Debate Discussion Revelation.

So last night Earl and I talked about my feelings on the Affordable Health Care Act, and after much ranting, glaring, yelling and steaming, there was education on my behalf.

I am married to one smart cookie. I should know better than to try and debate a man that went to school for political science. I barely made it through Mrs. Catella’s social studies class in high school.

I’m still not a fan of the government telling me what to do. The problem is society. I strongly believe in personal responsibility and lazy people that think that the world owes them something make me angry. But just because they’re lazy and unproductive doesn’t mean that they’re not worthy of health care. Everyone deserves health care, even if it’s because that have sat on their ass drinking gin at noon and staring at Facebook all day playing “Jewels Be Woo Woo” or something other abuse of technology. And, as a quick aside, let’s not confuse “lazy and unproductive” with “unable to be productive”.

Even though I’m not a fan of the government telling me that I must have some sort of health insurance or be penalized, I now realize that this may be the best solution for an all around crappy scenario. I get that now. And I have my husband to thank for that.

I don’t have a better answer to this problem so who am I to judge? Just do good, live a good life and love one another. That’s all I got.


  1. Earl is a smart man. As are you.

    I loathe “lazy and unproductive” too, and I guess we have a fair number on both sides of the ocean. But even they should have health care. Of course, they should also get off their arses too. But that’s a whole different conversation 🙂

    1. I agree that the lazy folks are still entitled to health care, though it frosts me that it’s usually their laziness that leads to their needing health care. When I see someone driving around on one of those mobility carts while smoking a cigarette I want to short out their battery or shove them in the nearest river. I might have anger issues.

  2. People like my parents, small dairy farmers, could not afford health insurance. My father died prematurely at age 65 as a result.

    1. I think it’s terrible that folks can’t afford health insurance and that’s why I am in favor of the Affordable Health Care Act. It’s the lazy people that expect free health care on everyone else’s dime that makes me crazy. I’m sorry to hear about your dad’s passing due to this. That’s just awful.
