In addition to unleashing the union goons, the Obama regime is also astroturfing the blogosphere with canned talking points. The latest leftist talking point to filter its way out of David Axelrod’s office, through the left-wing blogosphere for the use of his left shill commentators is that if nationalized health care is socialist, than so are social security and medicare; and surely those programs are working as intended, so ObamaCare will work great, too.
Leaving aside how a pair of bankrupt and fraud-ridden Government Ponzi schemes are examples of socialist programs that “work,” let’s say for the sake of argument that social security and medicare are working “as intended.”
Heroin works as intended, it makes you feel good for a while, but in the end, you’re broke, sick, and too weakened to do anything about it.
So it is with these government programs. They may feel good, at first, but addiction and dependence on them will destroy you. And the people who are pushing them don’t give a damn about you, they just want your money.
The decision of when you stop draining valuable and limited government resources and accept your demise is an intensely personal decision, between you, your doctor, and the yet-to-be-appointed members of the medical review board.
Don’t let these crowds of nervous seniors confuse you; they’re probably confused themselves. Government programs never have unintended consequences, and federal programs never expand and grow beyond their original purpose and mandate.
