If you live in the United States and don't have health insurance, you qualify for discounted prescription drugs
Today in Useful Fucking Things That No One Tells You About: the Prescription Assistance Program (PAP) offers a discount drug card to uninsured Americans. The card is accepted at over 56,000 pharmacies nationwide, including CVS, RiteAid, Walgreens, and Safeway, and offers a discount of up to 75%.
I was fired a few years ago and was afraid I would have to give up my antidepressants, but my dad told me about the drug card. With it, I paid $30 instead of $60. Still kinda pricey, but I was able to afford them until I found a new job (and since they were for my social anxiety, I have no doubt they helped during interviews).
Share this. I’m sure there are a ton of unemployed and uninsured people who don’t know about this.
So important, definitely spread this.
That one time I wasn’t on psych meds because I couldn’t afford them.
LIFE SAVING INFORMATION, PEOPLE
New chart from Tax Policy Center.
Obama vs. Romney on tax rates: As you can see, rates are largely the same—except for the nation’s richest and poorest. The poor would pay almost twice as much in taxes under Romney’s plan; meanwhile, the very richest in the country would be forced to cough up about 10% more of their income under Obama. The net effect? In short, Romney’s plan would reduce federal revenues to about 17% of GDP—down .9% from where they are now. Obama’s budget would raise revenues 19.2%, with most of that money coming from those making over $250,000 a year (Graphic and data courtesy of The Washington Post / Tax Policy Center).
Just so we’re clear:
If you’re in the lower 60 percent, your taxes will be lower under Obama than under Romney.
If you’re in the lower 90 percent, your taxes will be lower or roughly the same under Obama.
If you’re in the top 10 percent, Romney got yer back.
Will you be my valentine? If no, blink. If yes, don’t.
