Now, with his comments about taking away the incentives for success and people losing interest in working hard in mind. Lets look at another video:
Think about this for a second. They’re penalizing success and there are large groups of people who instead of working live off of entitlements from the government. As RobertaX said, we cannot reverse the slope, but we can at least change it to give us some time. Given time we might be able to reverse it.
The ACA is going to have some serious repercussions that many probably don’t even realize. Especially in large parts of the voter base that is most likely to support Obama. What am I talking about? College internships are liable to get screwed.
There is no way a company is going to bother paying for benefits for an intern, doubly so since usually they are on school or their parents healthcare. So now when you’re working 40 hour weeks in the summer they’ll have to provide care of face a fine. Well instead they’ll limit you to 29 hour work weeks.
This is significant because during the summer I regularly worked 40+ hour weeks to pull overtime to save up for my upcoming semesters. Now instead students will have to incur more debt because they will be prevented from earning money to pay for school. Wait, who is it that subsidizes most of the loans, which are exempt from most laws governing debt, that’s right the government.
That’s right folks, the government passed legislation that will force more people to take loans and pay them interest. Nice huh? Don’t worry though, they’re from the government and they’re here to help…
Ultimately though Bill Whittle nails it with this one:
The money quote:
The left has these same failed ideas from about a 20 year window at the end of the 19th century. That have never worked, don’t work now, and will never work. And this clinging to an ossified discredited model based on envy and resentment has killed no less than 100 million people. And many people call this progressive as they cover themselves in glory, but not in the blood or the failure.
It may be the recent history of the 20th century, however I think it’s certainly in the current path of the future for the United States.
