Dear Federal Government,
This just doesn’t feel right. I’ve seen your balance sheet and you can’t afford to send me this “disability” check. I’m not cashing it.
If I’m not taking the money, then why did I submit a claim? I submitted a claim because it is the only way to not be forced to pay for medical coverage that is falsely expensive because of your, the government’s, involvement.
For the record, I did not lie on my claim. I listed all my aches and pains–which thankfully are minor–and let the system decide. I got 10%. I really don’t know all the politics behind this issue, and I’m not a health care professional, but there is no way that I should be receiving free money.
I will be at my first annual check-up at the VA medical center, where the nurses and doctors have been very accommodating and professional, on the 16th because that is what I need. I will continue to live a healthy lifestyle for myself, and to fulfill my responsibility to not be a drain on the system.
I will continue to save my money when I can. I hope you can do the same. You can start with my two hundred some dollars a month. It would be nice to cash the check and throw it on the giant pile that I’ve saved by not buying into the American consumer society that you’ve promoted, but I really don’t need it.
Thanks, but no thanks.
