My husband and I both work super hard. We are self-employed and on average we both work about 70 hours a week (each.)
We are not "wealthy," but we have everything we need.
My husband is a war veteran and fought Al Qaeda after the 9/11 attacks.
Through the military we have an affordable health care plan that we love.
This morning, with all the "deals" going on in Washington, I'm worried we might lose the insurance we have and be forced onto another insurance (Obamacare.)
Its seems like a monopoly. If Obamacare was a business we were forced to patron, we might see how ridiculous all this is.
Below is an example of what Obamacare would be like if it was a McDonald's Restaurant.
My fellow Americans, today I am announcing a way to end hunger in America forever! That's right, no more struggling to feed your family. No more wondering what to make for dinner. There will be plenty for all.
Everyday, everyone will eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner at McDonald's!
To insure this plan will work properly we will close down all the grocery stores, confiscate all farmland and ranches for McDonald's production, and fine citizens caught trying to plant their own gardens.
All McDonald's workers will now become government employees, that will still be forced to work even if the government shuts down.
American Citizen says:
But Mr. President, that all sounds good, but what if I don't like McDonald's?
Are you kidding? Everyone loves McDonalds. They even serve something called "Happy Meals." Besides, if you don't eat there, we will fine you.
What if McDonald's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner won't meet my family's nutritional needs?
I'm not worried about your health.
If our country is so far in debt, who will be paying for all this?
<-----These guys love it when we borrow money from them.
Won't the McDonald's become over-crowded?
People will just have to get on a waiting list to be served.
Is your family going to be forced to eat McDonald's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
Hell no, I won't let my family touch that stuff. Congress and their families won't have to eat it either.
Um, Why? Is there something in it we should be worried about?
But what if I'm afraid of clowns?
Then why did you elect one?
