Wow. A New York Times poll released today says that the uninsured dislike Obamacare even more than the insured do.
In other news, kids under six were found less likely to believe in Santa than their parents.
From the New York Times piece:
Fifty-three percent of the uninsured disapprove of the law, the poll found, compared with 51 percent of those who have health coverage. A third of the uninsured say the law will help them personally, but about the same number think it will hurt them, with cost a leading concern.
They get it. It’s proof of the maxim that average Americans understand things better than Harvard professors. Because average Americans have to live in the real world, where they have bills. They get that in the real world,
YOU DON’T GET SOMETHING FOR NOTHING.
Someone’s going to have to pay for all these wondrous benefits. All the Free Gifts Obama is handing out. Even Santa’s elves have to put food on the table for their families. Obama Claus’s presents come with a price.
The liberal intellectuals roaming the corridors of the West Wing actually do believe in Santa Claus. They think they can drop down the chimney and provide something for nothing, and if a bill somehow happens to come due, they can convince Beijing to cover it.
There are ways to help the uninsured without crippling the entire health care system. Once Obamacare is finished with the medical profession and the economy, even the uninsured will be worse off than before.
