Well! Look who sounds like a Republican all of a sudden, speaking of “my family’s pocket” and “our local economy.”
[W]hile both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn’t realize they would rise so much. “Of course, I want people to have health care,” Vinson said. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”
Oh My God. Yes, you thought yourself very virtuous, self-righteously declaring “Everyone should have health insurance!”
But you never expected to have to sacrifice anything except for mouthing that ego-pleasing slogan.
And you always put yourself morally above those who you thought would have to pay for all this — even though those people were the only ones who would be doing any sacrificing at all, in your mind.
And now you find out that You have to pay for your folly — and suddenly you’re not quite so self-righteous, are you?
