During a meeting at work today there was an actual conversation about awful "ObamaCare" is and how the "less deserving" was going to take advantage of it.
Me: *biting my tongue so hard that I could taste blood*
One of the participants actually said, "Worst of all, how are we supposed to pay for healthcare for people who contribute nothing
Me, unable to take it any more: "A friend of mine died from sepsis poisoning that was diagnosed far too late because he didn't have health insurance, which meant he had no healthcare either."
Result: Stunned silence that lasted all of a minute.
Me thinking during the moment of silence: I hope every single one of you feel shame.
And then they started talking about hockey.
Me thinking during the hockey discussion: I will not cry. I will not cry. I will not cry.
Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
