Here’s the deal. Awhile back my employer sent out a memo. If we wanted to keep our company healthcare plan we’d have to pay the entire monthly premium. There was no way I could afford to pay the $512.00 premium. So I shopped Obamacare and found a plan I could afford. Based on my current income I qualify for a subsidy, so I pay $141.00 monthly for the cheapest plan available in my state (Alabama) which is the bronze plan offered through BCBS. If the Supreme Court rules that I’m inelegible for a subsidy (thanks to the language in the bill) I will not be able to afford healthcare. It’s as simple as that. The Republicans keep saying they want to repeal and replace Obamacare, but they don’t say with what. They might not need worry, if the US Supreme court rules against the subsidies – that ruling will kill Obamacare and end my health coverage. Is making it impossible for those of us who are sick and unable to afford insurance on our own without help the goal here? No one seems to care about working class Americans. We can spend trillions of dollars fighting wars in the Middle East, bombing cities in Iraq into oblivion and then rebuilding them and what good did it do? Those people HATE us. Instead of helping Americans and rebuilding America we waste our money over there. I say secure our borders to keep those who would harm us out. And use the trillions we waste over there to rebuild America and insure that all Americans have affordable healthcare. I don’t think that’s to much to ask of our leaders.
