Hoisted on the ACA

October 17, 2013

I finally reached it the other day.  Enough regular freelance work to support my family, all things being equal.  Which they aren’t.  No I have to purchase insurance.  Last time I freelanced, I had a minimal package for $350 a month.  We never used it so we dropped it.   Now, he would have to have it, but now it’s three times that much with a deductible that we’d have to catch on fire to ever dent.  So, I guess we don’t have enough to go freelance.

This is an example of the government getting in the way.  I have a few poor friends exulting in it, but now the other side is posting on Facebook; entrepreneurs who make a decent living suddenly needing to look for work because the insurance they have to buy (that they wanted to buy) was more expensive than the stuff they couldn’t afford before.

And this is helping?

    The most feared words are, “We are from the government and we’re here to help.”
