Ok people, I know it has been a while since I last posted, but I have been busy so suck it up. Recently the SCOTUS has deemed that the new health care bill was Constitutional. I'm down for that, but at the same time I'm  actually on the fence on this one.

See, I don't think the government has the right to get into every aspect in our lives, but at the same time this new bill helps me out too. My son has autism and my current health care provider has dropped him and no longer covers his autism therapies.  To top it off, my son's provider also stopped taking my insurance provider due to late payments, or postponing as much and long as they could..pretty much a major dick move if you ask me.  We were not the only ones affected, the others that had the same health care provider had the same issues as well.  What really pisses me off is that I only get a few health care providers to choose from, but none that I actually want...which is bullshit if you ask me.

I look at this new bill as a start to provide healthcare for everyone, and also now people will learn to know what is now law and what isn't. Before if I asked an HR person about coverage I either get a blank stare because they didn't know or they would just tell me they didn't know. Now that the bill is out for everyone to see, maybe now people will have a better understanding as to what their rights are in regards to their healthcare.

What I do have a question about is how in the hell is someone who doesn't have health insurance currently going to be able to afford it now? And to top that off, if they don't get it by a certain time they face a penalty.  How is that going to work for those that receive government money to support themselves and their kids when they can't afford it now, and then pay the fine? I think there is something amiss here, that we are not seeing.

All I know is that I'm still on the fence with this new bill being passed, but at the same time it helps me a hell of a lot too. So...we will see what will happen and go from there I guess. That is the only option I have now anyway.

Later guys, till next time.
