Don't yall have to pay higher taxes though?
All of my pregnancy related bills cost $500 and that doesn't even include monthly premium. Yuuucckkk. But I got medicaid now so soon after the baby gets here I not gonna have to pay anything. The new healthcare reform has helped in some ways, mostly to the poor youth.
