In regards to the sale of this blog - I am currently waiting for the bids to start rolling in. In the meantime I thought I'd let my thoughts regarding the so-called "Affordable" Care Act be known.
Make no mistake, however, but this blog is still in the process of shutting down. I just thought I'd get a quick post in before that actually happens. BTW, some of my facts might be wrong due to all the interns having left, and fact-checking being their job. I'll do the best I can, but without a second pair of eyes to make sure I've got everything right... well, I make no promises.
Now, back to the so-called Affordable Care Act, or "ObamaCare". Obama cares? I say no, or he would not have championed and pushed such a stinky piece of legislation. For that reason I call the law ObamaFart.
Did you know that this bad piece of legislation is increasing the Red and Blue state divide? That is quite shameful in this blogger's opinion. Again the Blue states with their socialist agendas are improving the lives of their citizens while people in the self-reliant Red states continue to suffer.
Or, the poor citizens do, at least. And who cares about them? In fact, it pleases me quite a bit when the lice and parasites suffer. Personally I'd like to see them suffer to the point of being exterminated. That is, afterall, the reaction of normal people when presented with such pests. We call the Orkin man.
But ObamaFart changes the equation in the Blue states, offering yet more entitlements to their parasites... which actually accomplishes the opposite of extermination, which is that it causes (or certainly will cause) these pests to flourish!
That is an extremely bad thing in the opinion of this individual who believes in acting in a rationally self-interested manner. When the parasites flourish obviously the end result will be more of them. And more parasites could very easily result in an increase in MY taxes!
Someone has to pay for the lazy good-for-nothing leaches whose only desire is to suck off the government teat! And, what, pray tell is wrong with the health insurance companies making a profit? This is some more Liberal nonsesense that I just don't get.
Over on my other blog, RNUSA, some idiot Liberal referred to these job creators making money as "pointless profits". Well, I didn't want to embarrass the poor deluded fellow, so I just chuckled and left it at that.
But, given that this commenter does not read LLIN, I feel safe saying here that this aversion to profits (viewing them as evil) is typical for your average deluded Liberal. As those of us with a modicum of intelligence know, profits are the engine that keeps the economy going. They motivate people to get out there and accomplish things that benefit us all.
Without the profit motive the US would quickly devolve into a Communist hellhole, although I'm sure that would be just fine for some (if not most) Liberals. The very idea of hard work churns their stomachs. Why work hard when you can just tax rich people and then be free to lie back in your government-provided hammock?
This is why I strongly oppose ObamaFart. It disincentivizes people and that is NOT a good thing. On the other hand, seeing some of their lazier brethren die due to a lack of health care might just incentivize some lazy Liberals to get up off their butts and get to work.
And, in regards to people dying due to a lack of healthcare - as I already said - that, in my opinion, was a positive of the old system. At least it's still taking place in the Red states that rejected the Medicaid expansion. Just not the Blue states...
Which is one of my major issues with ObamaFart. It really gets my goat that parasitical Liberals in the Blue states are having their lives saved while parasitical Rednecks are still dying. This divide is not tolerable in the eyes of this Libertarian/Objectivist. The lazy parasites should be exterminated equally! Both Red state parasites AND Blue state parasites. Both are a drain on the wealth of the productive Makers and are therefore bad for the economy.
