I finally decided to hell with them, I wasn't going to pay it any more.
If the goal of the ACA was to make health care affordable, they failed miserably.
Thank you for taking the time to write to my office. I always appreciate engaged subjects taking a role in the democratic process.
Please rest assured that this agreement has been properly scrutinized by those who have the proper need to know. Rest assured that TPP is in the best interests of the people who matter.
We do understand that we have concerns, but we really don't care. Why? Because FUCK YOU, that's why!
Now shut up and go back to sleep.
I know you're trolling, but... In 2014, I had the chance to vote in a new US Senator. My then current senator was a big supporter of everything that President Barack Obama advocates. Almost immediately, the new Senator that I voted for declared his support for giving Barack Obama the TPA authority he wanted to shove TPP down our throats. I called his office to express my displeasure.
Why did I even bother voting?
I do subscribe to NetFlix DVD (yeah, DVDs are old-fashioned but the selection is much better than their streaming service). I pay less than $20 per month to see as many movies as I like, and I would pay more than that to take the family out for one night for a feature film.
Either one is a great family vacation spot for those of us sour on Disney.
I'll wait to see it on NetFlix. The next family vacation to a "Theme Park" will be for Busch Gardens or Sea World. (Now, please dig up some dirt on Busch to tell me I made a bad decision)
All that being said, I do want to drive an electric car some day, and I don't want to pay the early-adopter tax.
The funny story is that one day it looked like my dream was coming true; I was brought on as a temp-to-hire for a company in Austin. I was asked to spend the first two months on-site with a client in Denver, at company expense, which was awesome because I had no rent payment for two months! I was placed on a dysfunctional team and let go after a few months. After that, I decided to just take another job in Denver since I had already vacated my apartment and I love mountain sports so much.
The best part of the story is that I had a chance encounter with someone I regularly saw at the client site. He said that the project crashed and burned, so I think you could say that getting fired from that job would be like getting ejected from the Titanic before it left port.
If you're out in Utah, I would suggest taking a walk around Ancient Art sometime, near the town of Moab. It really looks like a landscape straight out of a "Dr. Seuss" book. Canyonlands is amazing, too!
That being said, last time I checked, there are a fraction of tech jobs in Utah that there are in Colorado.
It is contrary to reasoning to say that there is a vacuum or space in which there is absolutely nothing. -- Descartes
