its all the same

thats what i thought as i read the article
thought about all the uproar over obamacare
the upcoming disaster thats about to happen if the supreme court
overturns the subsidies for some of the obamacare policies

one of my sons is on an obamacare policy in california
he wont be affected by the supreme court ruling
since he doesnt get subsidized by the feds
plus he got a better policy than what was offered by the
private insurance company

oh wait a minute
we are subsidizing his insurance
he takes the $4000 and uses it as a deduction
and saves over $1000 in taxes
so  technically we subsidize him $1000

then there was a point where we were paying
$10000 a year for health insurance
so we were being subsidized $3000 a year
by the federal government

my wife she is now on a policy from work
she still has to pay $2000 a year for her coverage
so we save $600 a year in subsidized tax relief
thank you very much uncle sam

Image result for medicare
i am on a medicare policy as are 4 of my siblings
no doubt about it
thats a federally funded national plan

then i thought about my brothers and relatives retired
from the military
thats champus
yep another federally funded national plan

Image result for champus insurance
theres relatives that go to the va for care
a federal national plan for sure

then i thought about
well i thought through everyone we knew
im sorry but i cant really think of anyone who
is not on an insurance that we dont subsidize
or that isnt a federally funded plan
Image result for health savings account
maybe someone who is working and doesnt have
insurance at work
buys it themselves
unless they have a health savings account which
we all subsidize

we meaning the federal government

it seems to me that all these are the same
we are all subsidizing each others plans
