Oh, And, One More Thing

One more thing: thank you to all the wonderful taxpayers who are continuing to subsidize my health insurance premiums under the Affordable Care Act in 2017. My personal share of the monthly premium did not, after all, increase. Rather, the federal government is now subsidizing my monthly premium in an amount exceeding $630 per month, or about $200 more per month than they were in 2016.

And just so you know, other than possibly consuming a bit too much soda pop, I continue making an effort to remain healthy and avoid doctors and hospitals, so that entire $630, plus the additional amount I pay myself under penalty of law, is going directly to the overflowing coffers of the insurance industry.

I believe the term is "corporate welfare." I really oughta get me one o' them corporations.
