An Alchoholic Gets Top Medical Care…And Other Brotherly Rants
“This is what REALLY pisses me off.” my brother said. “Bob,” (not his real name) is an alcoholic, and he had a heart attack, but they couldn’t operate on him until he was detoxed, so they put him in a coma for a week to detox him. A WEEK! How much was that bill? And you know what? He didn’t have to pay one single penny. Because if you don’t work, you don’t have to pay. You and I pay.”
My brother was on a furious rant. He is now on Social Security and I was asking him about Medicare. My brother has a small business, so he’s glad he’s on Medicare. But, his wife had to sign up for Obamacare, and then he went into another rant….
“Obamacare is worthless, it doesn’t pay for anything, and on top of that, the deductible went up to $5,000!” His wife has a precondition…and so she needs a lot of doctor care and medications. But because they own a small business, which thanks to the Bush/Obama bank holiday, are going the way of J.C. Penny, they need the cheapest insurance they can find. At the time, Obamacare was law.
“I just found out that one dental implant costs $5,000.” I told him, trying to get in my frustration. I have a tooth that decided to dislodge from its roots, without even asking my permission. “They can give you a whole set of dentures for $485, but for the price of one tooth, I could buy five really cool riding lawn mowers!” (Don’t ask me what made me think of that.)
My brother didn’t care about my teeth…or riding lawn mowers…he was too upset….
“And another thing, did you know that Dubai will not take ANY refugees? We protect Dubai, and they are rich beyond any place else in the world, and yet, why do we have to take Muslim refugees when they don’t have to? I see the armies of young men coming into the country. And it’s me who is paying for their health care. I’m sorry, I’m furious.” he said.
“Well, it’s the Saudi’s that are building mosques all over Europe and the United States for those ‘refugees’. It’s basically an invasion. That’s how they take over countries.” I said.
But, he wasn’t listening. “All my money goes to insurance.” He said. “House insurance, car insurance, health insurance. The other day I went to the dentist office, (he has insurance) and I asked them if they were SURE that I was covered, and they said “Yes, we’re sure.” And then they sent me a bill for $553, and when I called them, they said the insurance didn’t cover it, and if I DON’T pay it, then my credit rating is shot and they will come and take my house….”
And so the conversation went. I had just had the same conversation earlier that day with my friend in North Carolina. She said, “Everybody that I talk to is so depressed. They can’t get ahead, and they know they will NEVER be able to get ahead, and there is nothing in the world that you can do about it.”
Not to mention the news, hour by hour, minute by minute, the news is depressing, vicious, attacking— and it does leave you feeling like nothing in life will ever be enjoyable again.
It’s a wonder more people don’t commit suicide.
And the Democrats say that things in America are great. Really? Seriously?
The rich in Washington D.C., still do not feel the pain, and they never will. They have sucked the working class people dry, and in the future, the millions of illegal immigrants sucking off the teat of the ones working, will bankrupt us all, with the blessing of the rich in Congress. If Congress doesn’t repeal it, they WILL be sorry.
And as if the daily berating of President Trump isn’t enough to piss us all off, we hear today that Obama and Michelle got a $65-million-dollar book deal to tell us all what a great job they did in the White House, and how abused they were.
Am I furious? You bet. Nobody Wonders WHO paid for those multi-million dollar Obama smiles, but I bet, it was my brother.
I don’t think I’ll tell him. I’ll wait till he’s dead.
