Obamacare versus Reality
I was once sympathetic to Obama but no more. I strongly disliked the prior, Bush admin. for lying and starting expensive and ill fated wars, but I am no fan of Obama seeing his record.
I am 55 and if the US healthcare was not so terminally F'd up I would be a happy camper. I have a steam of income, savings, a business and I invest actively and smartly having a background of a trader.
Now here is the kicker, I actually hold a job that I despise but it actually has benefits.
Now, millions of boomers are much worse shape then me. Finding a job after 45-50 is almost a zero chance proposition. I wish to work part-time only but I cannot. I am afraid to lose my benefits. In a normal world, I would do that and make room for a younger person to take my hours. I am burned out and wish to do other things.
This Obamacare had become a quagmire and a mess. Why could not Obama, instead of having passed that abortion of a legislation just extend the existing Medicare to age of say, 50 or even 55? I am not sure of the economical sense but these people(WE) are quite numerous, we vote, we are not destitute financially we have a lobby (AARP) but we are without medical care - unless we work or pay through the nose. Obama could have actually do some good if he had just expanded the existing system(medicaid) and try to enact some measures to control cost. Why did he not do this? Is it too late now? I am sure that whatever he dreamed up along with the Pelosi gang will be rolled back eventually. There is absolutely no reason for mandatory health insurance if you are a younger person. It is just plain STUPID. After 40, things change and get gradually worse as years pile up. I am (knocking on wood) healthy but you never know, I must have some insurance. Either that or I must leave and move to Canada. (options I am considering).
I am a "boomer" and
