I’ve been stuck under the obligations of life here lately so haven’t been able to enjoy my reading or even attempt to write anything new. My daughter’s wedding was this past weekend so I included some pictures taken by my phone, she forbade me my real camera, so they aren’t that good. You get to see a few shots of the inside of one of the Old Southern Mansions – now used for Weddings & Events. I forgot to even look at the vineyard in the back, but I did try the wine. Not bad… did the job… LOL
As I sit here writing this, I’m listening to the House Committee questioning the HHS Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius. It really irritates the CRAP out of me when instead of trying to get answers to questions we’d like to know, SOME of those guys only want to spout off their talking points & lay blame on others, they spread lies, bicker and even misrepresent the Truth. It’s like a side show in my opinion. They’ve had at least 2 years to get this right and yet it is a TOTAL disaster/failure! Promises and more promises are made…. “Oh it’ll be fixed by Nov. 30th, or Jan. 1st or March”. Sure…. LMAO If not, you gotta pay a TAX though & if you don’t do that voluntarily…. they will just take it out of your tax refund. I’d hate to think what they plan to do to those who aren’t gonna get a refund. Who do they think is actually going to believe anything they say, when it’s been supposedly proven that the President &/or White House knew YEARS ago that this roll out/Program, was going to cause millions of American’s to lose the healthcare they had. All those FALSE promises of the price being lower, the care better, & you could keep your own doctor or healthcare if you liked it!!!
All I can say is that my personal premiums more than doubled, my out of pocket maximum is about the same. The state gave us no choice of companies but we did get a choice of levels & I admit I got the top one. My medications won’t go toward my deductible anymore which sucks since my one prescription of cancer medicine is now $450 a month and usually goes up $20 a year, but they are giving us, in my plan, $400 to use first before we have to begin to pay for stuff ourselves. However, OUR enrollment period was Oct. 21 through Nov. 8th. We had to decide before the whole debacle of the web site began. I wasn’t going to get that crap (my opinion) anyway, as anyone with any mathematical brain cells will realize that unless they can get enough young, healthy, people to sign up and pay their HUGE premiums, it is going to collapse into itself. I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. And, if we ever gave up our state insurance (regardless of the cost or plan details) we could NEVER get it back. That means if I left my own insurance and this imploded or was repealed, I wouldn’t be able to go back to my old insurance. I’d have to get the higher single payer insurance. I don’t know about you, but I just don’t know too many HEALTHY, young people jumping up and down to pay HUGE premiums & Deductibles. (Of course you don’t find out the pay until AFTER you’ve put in all your info. and if your family makes over $30,000 a year, YOU DON’T GET A SUBSIDY (sp?), but you can’t find that out till the END. HA!!!
Not happy about be forced to pay for abortions (which I don’t generally agree with unless medically required to save life), and to pay for Birth-Control pills…. which I had to pay for my own, & my daughter cannot take as she has migraines & the BC pills can cause major heart problems or sudden death if taken by someone with her type of migraines…. sigh…. oh well…. Let the clowns decide. They obviously don’t think we know anything or they are too interested in their own blind agenda to care about what we want or think, or even what would be the best option for the public.
Look at all the millions of people across the country who have lost their coverage and are now without insurance. They hope that will push them into this Government run Healthcare. (Personal opinion… usually, if the govt. gets involved in something, it’s filled with fraud, is substandard, or a complete failure… except for the military. Now though they are even trying to “ham-string” the military in my opinion by making the stupid “Rules of Engagement”, among other things. I’d like to see THEM go out and actually have to fight, face people with real guns who are trying to kill them, and use those Rules of Engagement… just my thoughts)
OKAY…… My daughter’s wedding was this past weekend so I thought I’d post a few shots taken with my phone, so no… they aren’t the best…. but she wouldn’t let me take my good camera. LOL
Parting words of Wisdom between Mother and Daughter
Sorry, the real pictures will be in soon… I didn’t take any of her in her dress (the lace overlay) or the front of the Mansion.
Why do they keep talking about how great it is to keep your kids on your insurance till they’re 26? You don’t get a price break for that. It use to triple my premiums when my daughter was on my plan.
What ever happened to SELF-RESPONSIBILITY?????? I have ALWAYS paid for myself and my kids insurance…. Why can’t these people? We are already giving them food stamps or Welfare so they don’t have to spend money there? They often get rent subsidized housing also… I don’t get that… So I’m paying for ALL my own bills and those of others who aren’t working and getting all kinds of free stuff I can’t even afford? WTF??
How can anyone stand up there and say NO OTHER PLANS HAVE BEEN OFERED??? There have been many, the Senate just didn’t want to vote on them & he refused to sign them even if they HAD made it that far. I HATE LIARS… I DON’T CARE WHO THEY ARE OR WHAT OFFICE THEY HOLD. THEY ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW! (as they appear to believe)
The masses of the United States (the ones who are doing all this PAYING, are NOT stupid! They really ought to consider that before opening their mouths…. just my opinion.
I gotta go…. I can’t stand to listen to these lies coming out of his mouth with a straight face… talk about DIVISIVE….. I gotta go throw up…. Sorry. Hope you all have a great weekend.
If you are in Georgia and are coming to visit “Christmas, made in the South”, stop by and see me. I’ll be in the booth with my daughter-in-law selling her art work. I’ll try to post copies if I can…
PLEASE DO NOT STEAL HER ART!
