Show-Me Irony: Missouri Rural Area Mostly White Po'Folk Desperately Need Obamacare

Examiner reports a tragic reality which reveals that politics and the culture war aren't really in the best interests of po'folk misguided by big money interests playing on their bigotry: Missourians who live in rural areas are far less likely to have health insurance than those living near big cities, according to U.S. Census data.

Another irony: even with subsidy they can't afford it. Who needs $250 a month insurance with a $10000 deductible? Who are we kidding? They either get heavily taxed for poverty or lightly taxed for poverty. Either way it's a tax on making less than a quarter of a million dolllars a year. Where's the social justice in that?

People do realize the subsidy is not taken off the monthly bill but in the form of a deduction on your taxes

Mr. Tony,
The same rural folks were the ones that got hit with the restrictive TANF overhaul. These communities just don't have the needed social service infrastructures to help with the Tea Party driven cut backs, poor things.

it is taken in the form of a CREDIT, which is entirely different than a DEDUCTION, which is what your health insurance premiums are now in 2013 when you fill out your taxes in April for this tax year.

You could organize the work place but you're actually a Nazi pretending to be a fast food worker.

Poor people (which is what this whole obama care is supposed to be for) cant afford those ridiculous premiums, (hell neither can the middle class who have families) the shit will never work, I am poor and I wont pay, but I am healthy and I will put my money in making sure I stay that way by eating raw foods, not taking prescription drugs (although the thought of being on a bandwagon of class action lawsuits against the pharmaceutical mafia might provide me the opportunity to pay the Obama Care premiums, yet everyone knows class action lawsuits are only profitable for the lawyers, so I will stick with fuck you Obama and the fact you really don't care about the American people so if I get sick I might die because I cant pay, but if I do I will be free. Mr president isnt being free what this country is supposed to be all about? It used to be but I guess not anymore.

No money left for health insurance after they make payment on their humongous pickup trucks.
