Quoted from Who-Dey:
I know several people under the last administration that couldnt get disability either and they truly deserved it. Its not and never has been an easy thing to get........well at least for the people who really need it. Seems like some people get it way too easy. Its a flawed system and this didnt just happen in the last three years and you know it.
I can only speak for myself. Under the previous administration, it was hard but not impossible.
It is now impossible.
So put yourself in my shoes. My medication and treatments, plus insurance runs $62,000 a year.
A need to earn $100,000 just to pay my medical.
I cant work, period, more than a few hours, if I can stand. No one will hire full time, with a good plan.
So, I can go on Medicaid....That makes me a loser and a taker. cut the program.
Many of my meds ARE not covered by medicaid, so please die, even though I paid in to the system, like you, like taxes.
I can Use the ACA, but thats a Horrible Ugly thing, that the President wants gone, with no plan to share.
I could set up trusts, and use the ER and abuse the system. That loop hole is gone, and treatment is no longer offered.
So tell me. You are Me. How do you stay Alive?
Yes, my wife works, with several surgeries, part time for our local Government for $10 an hour, no benefits, if she works full time with benefits, the plan wont cover my meds, and wont earn enough
to cover food.
Tell her to get a higher paying Job? at 60, partially disabled....Who is giving away $100-$200,00 jobs?
What would you do?
For you, your life, I respect it is different. For me, it is Life and death.
