WASHINGTON, October 9, 2013 — Conservatives often derisively refer to Obama supporters as, “low information voters.” While liberals find the terminology offensive, as lawyers like to say, “Truth is an absolute defense.”
Now that Obamacare is rolling out, it is sending liberals into hysterical shock.
They have to pay for Obamacare.
The San Jose Mercury News interviewed several Obama supporters who were stunned after learning the details of Obamacare. One was a single woman who said the cost of her individual insurance plan was going up by $1800 a year. Then they interviewed a man who has a family of four. His health insurance costs are going up roughly $10,000 a year.
Cindy Vinson, the woman who was interviewed by the San Jose Mercury News, gave the greatest quote of all. She said, “Of course, I want people to have health care, I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”
Obama supporters like Cindy Vinson make it painfully obvious that neither economics nor civics are taught in school anymore.
One of the first rules of economics is, “There is no such thing as a free lunch.”
Who did these people think was going to pay for Obamacare? Did they think it would be these mythical people called “the rich?” Do they not realize in Obama’s world, they are the rich?
What did they think would happen? Did they think a fairy would magically appear, sprinkle magic fairy dust around and cover the cost?
We are seeing the zombie apocalypse now and it is in the ballot box. Back in the day, when America had the greatest education system in the world, Americans were taught basic economics. Market, supply and demand and cost were not foreign terms. Today for all of the low information voters, trying to explain that someone has to pay for all of these goodies like Obamacare is like trying to explain something to them in Farsi.
Odds are, they will remain clueless.
Our founding fathers dreaded someone like Barack Obama and today’s modern Democrat Party. They understood that a political system based on bribing certain groups with favors and gifts from the national treasury was unstable and unsustainable.
Modern socialism is unsustainable for this very reason. Look at the European nations that are sinking faster than an Italian cruise ship. The socialists cannot cut any facet of government because it would anger a necessary constituency. Those nations are locked into a death spiral that will end very badly.
Barack Obama and the Democrats are trying their best to put America into that same death spiral. Unfortunately for America, they are aided and abetted by the low information voter.
Perhaps those people in San Jose who were so shocked that they had to pay for Obamacare should be made aware of the famous words of the late, great, British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.
“The problem with socialism is sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money.”
