Thought you might enjoy this video, in which Obama’s political arm tries to get parents to tell their young adult kids to buy insurance they don’t want. It went out this morning to the millions – probably tens of millions – who are on the Organizing for Action email list.
The young and healthy are the lifeblood of Obamacare. Without their dollars, the system can’t support the older, sicker people who are signing up.
Obamacare is much like our other entitlements, Medicare and Social Security. It’s basically a tax on the young to support older Americans and those with health problems.
Remember, Medicare and Social Security are funded by current taxes. They were sold as “savings” programs,” but they’re not. Your payments just entitle you to money from the young when you get old, just as you fund your elders in your youth.
America already cannot afford its existing entitlements. They’re good programs in theory – no senior should be left destitute – but they need to be reformed for future retirees. Instead of doing this, Obama added a new entitlement. A new tax to break the backs of current workers and businesses.
And that, folks, is why, instead of recovering from the recession, the economy staggers about like an stressed-out soccer mom who mixed her Xanax with her chardonnay. The recession itself of course was the consequence of another liberal quasi-entitlement – affordable housing for those who can’t afford housing.
