Free Riders? Wassup With That?
A Change In Philosophy?
I've been kind of quiet lately by design and not chance. It's hard to digest the constant media lies that I keep being subjected to under the pretense of protecting the likes of Barack Hussein Obama. The chiming in from the left and the right concerning the ruling of the Supreme Court regarding Obamacare spins on but one thing has always been perfectly clear to this writer since that piece of legislation was crafted behind closed doors, was passed with no one being able (much less being given sufficient time) to read it and signed by the President of this nation who also hadn't read the bill. What was clear to me as soon as "we found out what was in it" is that it was a huge disguised tax hike on the American people.
I'm also never surprised at the hypocrisy of one Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the House, whenever she chimes in on any issue. All weekend long I read about, and watched and listened as Democratic politicians and talking heads told those sheeple who would believe anything they say that it was a penalty and not a tax. Amazing huh? If it had been accepted as a penalty, Obamacare would have been struck down according to the majority opinion of the SCOTUS. Seems the Democrats now want to have their cake and eat it too. So lets get to the heart of the matter.
According to Pelosi, who was instrumental in shoving this legislation down the throats of a resistant American public, the mandate isn't a tax at all but rather a penalty for those who take a free ride if they become ill or injured. It just so happens that the IRS is the one sent to collect the penalty. This was one of the most remarkable about faces I have ever witnessed in the political arena. What chu talkin' about Nancy?
Even though Obama's own Solicitor General contended in his oral arguments before the Supreme Court that the mandate was a tax and not a penalty, Obama and his minions now want to argue the converse of that argument? Which is it?
During the 18 months it took to sneak the bill through rather than concentrate on the dismal shape of the economy all we heard were the sob stories. What about all those 30 to 50 million people who were wandering around without health insurance? At that time they were "victims" and now they are "free riders?" Nancy those are the same free loaders who keep your political party afloat.
Here's The "Dingbat" Interview If You Missed It?
Then she uses the "1% line" which I've about heard enough of. All of the sudden the 1% have become the free loading crowd who are victimizing everyone else rather than the corporations, rich people or anyone else the party of free loaders wants to pin the tail of the donkey on. No pun intended about the Dems symbol. Free loaders or free riders, makes no difference to me.
More Free Riders Nancy? In Other Words, Become A Free Loader!
If it weren't for the free riders of this nation the Democratic Party wouldn't exist. Looking at the expansion of rolls of people who have their hands out illustrates my point here. The Department of Agriculture is running ads promoting and encouraging people to get in line for the food stamp program. Or the free cell program comes to mind since now having a cell phone seems to be a right in life. Obama and his party are intent on making more and more people dependent on the federal government, not less. That is their agenda but we're just not supposed to see it? Need more evidence? Why are the 50% of people who pay no income tax allowed to not contribute on the same basis as those of us who do? Those are the free loaders they rely on to return to power over and over again by allowing them to continue to chase the carrot. That's why.
You Did Hear What He Promised Didn't You?
In reality Obamacare itself is all about free riders. It's now ObamaTax and was designed to give even more people a free ride, not less. It is also ironic that 75% of the people who will be hit by this "tax," which it what it really is, will be those who make less than $120K a year. It will hit the young of our nation right in the wallet. The Free Loader Party likes to leave out the details. I prefer not to.
1% huh? So now this political party wants to label its voters as "free riders." Have at it!
Happy Independence Day! Might I suggest you look at how your freedoms are being chipped away at one by one in the name of being a free rider.
Truth of the day -
How do you tell a Romney supporter from an Obama supporter?
Romney supporters sign their checks on the front; Obama supporters sign 'em on the back.
