Do you ever read the news and get the feeling that the government is really out to stick it ordinary people? I know I think that way. Here’s why, and this is only from this week’s events.
Do you like your health care plan? Too bad. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says that private sector health plans are on their way out. Of course, she says that Obamacare had nothing to do with that. Really? For sure? Does she expect us to believe that a federal government takeover of one-sixth of the economy will have no effect on private sector health plans? The whole purpose of Obamacare was to have an effect on private health plans. Unfortunately for us that effect is negative. Now that things are going badly the administration has to make it sound like this is just the natural course of events. Secretary Sebelius, we don’t believe you. Obamacare is a disaster. It needs to be repealed or our healthcare will go the way of the rest of our freedoms. I hope everyone likes Medicaid.
Will you get your hands off my wallet? Ward of the state Fannie Mae wants another $4.6 billion after losing money in the fourth quarter. Hey, didn’t we already bail out Fannie Mae to the tune of $116 billion?
Speaking of bailouts, President Bailout, excuse me, President Obama met with UAW workers and bragged about GM actually making money. Do you think that might mean that GM will pay corporate taxes? The Wall Street Journal has exposed how GM gets to carry forward tax losses that should have been wiped out in bankruptcy. Not to worry, it is only $18 billion. Chump change to Obama if that is what it takes to buy union votes with our money. AIG and Citicorp get the same tax benefit, too, by the way. Is that what Obama meant when he told Joe the Plumber he wanted to “spread the wealth”?
Had enough? I know I have.
