The United States of America is on her way to becoming a permanent welfare state. The middle class in America is under siege by government. It’s been a series of nickels and dimes until now. The hammer is set to drop in the form of healthcare reform. The nickels and dimes come in the form of taxes and fees. Do yourself a favor, take a notebook at the beginning of a month and keep track of every tax and fee you pay. Tax on food, gas, phone bill, utilities, and payroll. Then add it up at the end of the month or two months. That’s being nickeled and dimed to death by a government (local, state, and federal) that is now a big business which has incredible employment numbers, large numbers of services, and lousy product. We can’t decide to go to another store, either. After you add that up, think about how businesses are getting nickeled and dimed and then passing that cost off to you, the consumer. Thanks government.
Now we are getting set to triple down and pass a piece of legislation that will increase taxes, increase spending, put people between you and your doctor, and lower quality of health service. In a world where I can get high-definition broadcasts of football and where men put rovers on Mars, I’m going to get worse healthcare. This legislation is unpopular with almost everyone. So why are the Democrats willing to pass anything? There are Democrats who will lose their jobs, including Harry Reid, most likely. So why? Because they know what this bill will do. They understand that in 10 years this bill will turn the United States into a welfare state. There will be either those who make a ton of money or those who get cradle to grave government. There will be no way to turn back the tide. Once a government program, always a government program. The spending alone will kill what freedoms we have. Goodbye freedom, goodbye middle class, goodbye America.
