Radicals (Obama/Pelosi/Reid) want to control you and your wealth
What is the current budget battle and obamacare debate really about?
There are two ways to become richer.
One is to provide more goods and services; that’s economic growth.
The other is to snatch someone else’s wealth or income; that’s the spoils society. In a spoils society, economic success increasingly depends on who wins countless distributional contests: not who creates wealth but who controls it. But this can be contentious. Winners celebrate; losers fume.
It de-emphasizes production and fuels conflict…
Most Americans seem indifferent as to how they get ahead, whether by wealth creation or redistribution. The choice seems abstract. Fair enough. But for the country, the choice matters enormously. The appeal of the affluent society was that one group’s gains didn’t have to come at the expense of others’. The promise of economic growth was oversold, but it had the healthy effect of encouraging an expansive and inclusive vision of America.
What’s emerging today is more self-interested and self-destructive. The dilemma of a rich society is that its prospects can be undermined by its very abundance. Countries preoccupied by distributional wars are distracted from production. The ambitions of many of its most talented members can be satisfied not by adding to the total output but simply by subtracting from someone else’s. They are merely rearranging economic assets among themselves. If taken too far, this promises more political division and economic decline.
In the end, that is what Obamacare is all about. It is about controlling wealth. It is also what the budget battle is about. Once again we are on Democrat talking points instead of the real issues. Why do we even need a continuing resolution? Because the senate democrats refuse to produce a budget. They refuse to allow the american people to see where and how their money is being spent. They have run up $6T in debt with no accountability and denied the people due process. The ONLY way the people are even aware of this criminal activity is because we stand up to them when given a chance. During CR and Debt ceiling negotiations. It is the only check and balance left in place.
The President calls this unprecedented.
He is right. No President has ever displayed such a complete lack of respect for the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States.
