It’s Our Fault the Beast is Growing

The internet is exploding, once again, with debates about healthcare, thanks to TrumpCare. Next it will be HillaryCare, then RyanCare, and back and forth like a tether ball match, and we’re the ball getting pounded and tied to the center of it all.

Meanwhile, we the people are just arguing and venting about it by the water cooler while we continue to allow these politicians and insurance companies to rob us blind of our hard-earned money.
America seized to be a free country when healthcare was mandated by the previous administration. This is just the first step toward a socialist society.
Let me break down how it works, as simply as I can.
1. It used to be that people could get care from whomever they wanted
As early as the 70’s, people could choose Dr. Salt or Dr. Pepper to treat their cold or fix their bones. They often paid the doctor’s set price out of pocket as though they were just buying a bottle of shampoo from Target instead of Walmart. It was a happy and free country.
2. Enter Big Insurance
These Fuckers (you don’t mind if I call them that do you?) come along and say, “Hey, that medicine your doctor put you on is really expensive. Would you like us to help you pay for that?” So like suckers, we said, “Yay!” The Fuckers rubbed their hands together and said, “Just sign here and we’ll pay part of your health expenses. Oh, by the way, you’re locked into your policy, so once you’re better, you still need to keep paying us premiums. Because you need us so badly.”
3. The evil plan evolves 
So the Fuckers started to see that they can make a lot of money this way. At first, it might have had good intentions, but they weren’t happy with the millions of dollars they were already pocketing. They wanted to go for billions and trillions. So they started making up all these rules like denying claims for pre-exisiting conditions, only insuring the healthy, denying CAT scans because they didn’t approve it. Rule after rule after rule, each rule ONLY set in place to ensure the Fuckers save money and are exempt from paying out. EVEN THOUGH we’re all still paying higher and higher premiums (and co-pays, and deductibles) without exception.
4. Silencing the people
People started to see that this behavior was immoral and unethical. So they started complaining, fighting back, demanding their claims be paid. So the Fuckers panicked. “What do we do?” they asked themselves. “We need help!” So they spent billions of dollars (of YOUR premiums) to hire really smart people to sit around a table and plot and scheme and discuss ways to silence their customers and make it impossible for us to fight back or argue. “Let’s make our rules into laws!” some little fucker decided. “But how do we do that?” the others asked. “We need friends in high places.”
5. Enter the lobbyists 
This is where the Fuckers start to seduce and fondle government officials. They exchange favors. “You pass laws to shut these people up and make our thievery legal, and we’ll support your campaign and make sure you get your votes.” So the Fuckers and the Asshats (you don’t mind if I call the politicians that, do you?) all get into the big white bed together and had a nice little orgy, when ironically, we’re the ones getting majorly screwed.
6. More ways to rob us
In the meantime, the Fuckers are still spending YOUR premiums to bribe and tantalize the Asshats who pass laws to make it legal for the Fuckers to rob you. “But what happens when deductibles are met from just one hospital stay?” asked the insanely rich Fucker in his multi-billion dollar penthouse. “Easy! We’ll make it so that a deductible cannot be met with just one stay or one operation. Premiums continue to get paid and deductibles still have to be shelved out even though they technically met it. Brilliant!” And what about Group Insurance? Well, places of employment cannot discriminate based on lifestyles (how kind), so they’ll require screenings and hike individual insurance rates up (within the group policy) based off of each individual test. THAT’S how they determine risk factor and so get away with discriminating.
So what do we do? We’ve allowed these Fuckers and Asshats to use our money to devise ways to cut off our arms and legs. In the meantime, they’ve so brilliantly made the whole thing so complicated that we don’t even know where to start attacking them. We’ve allowed them to paint us into a corner. And unless “we the people” do something now, like, I don’t know, drop our insurance and stop voting (admittedly, two things that will hurt us immensely), then we’re just passing this evolving problem on to our kids to suffer with.
Big Insurance is a beast. And that beast continues to grow and grow the more we feed it. The more it grows, the more it demands. And the cycle goes on and on and on. That will not stop until we the people ban together and say enough is enough. The question is, HOW do we do that? Any ideas? Go on, I’m listening.
