I just don't get it

I have not ranted in forever, so I am due. Okay people what do we think of the new health bill? Quite frankly I don't really understand it. I understand two things, One, it is law to have health insurance now, two we cannot be excluded for previous illnesses.

All right, So the thing I do understand is that now the government says I have to have medical insurance. But I don't work for a company who has insurance and neither does my husband. Okay it seems like we are in the same place we were before. Can't afford insurance, but now it is the damn law to get it. Oh don't get me wrong I would love to have medical insurance and they say there will be programs for those who can't afford insurance, but I guarantee we will not qualify for THAT program. Gees, a girl just can't get ahead.

Okay, as though this is not bad enough. Have you heard about the 20 cent tax on plastic bags at the grocery store? I am one of those people that carries reusable bags. But when I go big shopping I don't have enough of those. I guess I am going to start carrying a suitcase around, a really big one. Ridiculous..........The government screws up and is looking to nickel and dime us to death. I mean how many things can they tax, how much money do you really think is taken from us by taxes? Think about it, phone tax, hotel tax, service tax, cable tax, tax tax tax. Seriously, add it up I bet it would be in the hundreds per month and thousands per year. Gees no wonder a girl can't get ahead.

Come people don't you have an opinion? I am looking forward to hearing from you.
