Re: Ok Trekkers, Don't Forget To Sign Up For Mandatory Obamacare Oct 1 I did not know that I've opted in to in now. Screw you. My Dad's in his mid fifties, and spent most of his life as a construction worker (with some time in a forest firefighter type job, working for a national park and doing work in other various jobs when he was younger). From the years he spent working various construction jobs, he's gotten a horrible neck and various other problems in his hands and back. He gets bouts of dizziness and has other problems because of that. His problems come from working, even if it wasn't a single incident, and thats why he gets state help. He's working with the state and currently doing a "go to school/retraining" thing, after which they'll help him get a job in some clerical type of position. Until then, he gets money from the state, but he's no crack head taking advantage of anything. When it comes to working he's my exact opposite, he's an extremely hard worker that is only not working because of his problems. I don't know where your comment came from, but aim your insults at me. My dad doesn't deserve to get insulted by some random guy on the internet for no other reason than the person doesn't like me or thinks my dad shouldn't put up with me. What is there to investigate? All the info comes from people who are biased. Democrats won't admit the problems it has (and don't care about people who can't afford it) and generally I don't trust Republicans to tell even half the truth. Like I said, 90% of the time I'm not agreeing with republicans over various issues, and my opinion of them as a group is pretty low. But, in this instance (and in other things related to it) they seem to want to screw me over less than the Democrats. Besides, all I need to know is that the government is charging me for being alive. I don't need obamacare, I don't want it, and its still going to only cause me problems. Thats the truh of the matter for me personally, ignoring all the BS from both sides.
