Rant on poverty in America, Obamacare

I don’t care how ‘rich’ and ‘prosperous’ America claims to be. I don’t care how luxurious the cars and mansions of the rich are, how many boats and vacation homes they have. I don’t care how many skyscrapers they exploit labor to build. When 1 in 5 children in this ‘prosperous’ country go hungry it makes no difference. History will not remember our country kindly. Earlier this week I heard about poor, african american children going to school and crying in class because they are so hungry in my hometown in North Carolina. What the hell is wrong with our country? What kind of country does this?

What is happening in this country is a joke. The mainstream media is not addressing the problems of the poor, the problems of the vast majority of Americans. One only has to turn on Fox news to see how blatantly obvious this manipulation is. All the bourgeois media is simply a bunch of rich people telling middle class people to blame poor people for problems caused by rich people. Look at Obamacare, they are clearly telling the poor majority of Fox’s audience to be enthusiastic about losing Obamacare.

Let’s be clear, I do not like Obamacare. It does not go nearly far enough, that being said it is the only thing they have and it should be at the very least reformed. Never should it be done away with, the people cannot afford to go back to fully privatized healthcare. The cost of Obamacare was paid by increasing taxes ONLY on people making 250K+ / year (top 1/10th of 1%). This is payback by the rich who put Obama into office, as much as I can’t stand the guy. They will save $195,000/ year by cutting Obamacare. 30 million people lose health care coverage. Guess they can die then?
