Come take me to jail now. You know where I live.
If you think that I will be forced, coerced, or frightened into buying into your program. You are wrong.
I know that you will threaten to take my children. I know you will threaten to take my livelihood. We have ways around all that ourselves.
I will not be purchasing your health insurance.
I didn't have a choice in life. My mother made that choice. Once my brain developed and I learned on an intellectual level what life meant, I decided I liked it. And I choose to continue to go on. I will not kill myself, it isn't like car insurance.
I was raised in a very liberal household. What ever happened to the mantra of my body, my choice? Are you that hypocritical. Do you think the working poor are so stupid that they have to be saved? Or that's right, you are. It isn't their fault.
My father had health insurance for us when we were children. That was a part of the perks of getting a good job. I left home, and had no insurance. And the thing I find out is that if you have some money to give up to the hospital you go to, they tend to reduce bills and give you payment plans that actually fit your budget.
My husband worked hard. Earned a job with health insurance as a perk. We have been without it for two years. We set money aside in case of an emergency. And our doctor is one of those rare breeds that doesn't except health insurance in any form. Cash or check.
I refuse to drink the kool-aide, as so many are putting it. I refuse to buy into this. I will not pay your fines on principal.
I am prepared to go to jail.
