Excuse me while I get political for a moment.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH BOY do I have a blog for you today. So, I'll set the scene: It's a Wednesday afternoon, I've made lunch, and I sit down and try to find something worth watching on television. I come across C-SPAN, and being the government lover that I am, I decide to watch. (No, that wasn't sarcastic, I actually DO like the government, just not all of the people in it.) Anyways, I watch it and find out that there's this amendment (or WAS, I should say) called the Cruz amendment, set forth by Senator Cruz from Texas, postponing funding for Obamacare until the economy stabilizes. Now, I was intrigued, since I was a Democrat at that time. (About 24 hours ago, the realization finally hit me that I am a Republican.) Now, I had heard the Republican defense against Obamacare right off the bat, and let me tell you, I've never heard a thing more beautiful in my life. See, Obamacare's regulations are fucking 20,000 pages. Taller than you, me, maybe even us stacked on top of each other. An estimated 97% of all current healthcare policies violate these regulations, and I'm almost positive the regulations violate the regulations. That's not even the best part: we Americans would have to buy a whole new policy for Obamacare. This is the same policy that promised jobs and a $2,500.00 policy reduction. Lemme tell you now, it's not going to create jobs. In fact, corporations are going to have to *FIRE* people. Why, you ask? Well, the thing with corporations is that they have to have group insurance. And I can't remember 100% of what Senator Rubio of Florida (R) said, but I do remember him saying that if the corporations don't have a certain policy or number of employees, then they can't buy insurance. If they don't have the proper insurance, the company then has to pay a fine. But, if they just fire workers, there's no cost directly involved. So, there's an estimated 200,000 + jobs on the line right now. And the $2,500.00 I'd mentioned earler? Yeah, not gonna happen. Why? because Obamacare has already increased the average American family's policy as much as $2,370.00, which is outrageous. Speaking of costs, Obamacare was originally projected at $984,000,000,000.00, but it's now projected $1,700,000,000,000.00, which is absolute bullshit. On top of that, Senator Rubio actually made very impressive and true points. Think, we all have different illnesses, we all have different allergies/weaknesses, so what's the point of having the same insurance? It's almost like saying, as Rubio stated, "Making the citizens buy a Cadillac Escalade, or nothing at all". Making us as citizens buy something we don't truly want or need is unconstitutional, in my opinion. Basically, Obamacare is a bad idea. We are in a currently unstable, unhealthy, and tragic economy. We're about $14,000,000,000,000.00 + in national debt, and we don't need any more. Government borrowing and spending is already out of control. Oh, get this: our parents pay $1.00 out of every $10.00 to the national debt. It sucks and is hardly working. So, what's going to happen? Well, the most logical response would be to increase the amount paid, so maybe $3.00 out of every $10.00? Which could help, but what happens next? We, our generation, is stuck paying so much more, maybe $5.00 out of every $10.00, and it just escalates.In short, Obamacare is going to ruin the country. I hate Obama. I'm a Republican, reppin' up in this biiiitch.
