Leftists sticking the hand out

I'm talking about their tendency to stick their hand out for someone else to give them something, they might not be helping themselves to the contents of your wallet while you stand by, but they’ll raise taxes so you don’t really see the money. Or they’ll put something else in place so that you just end up with less.
"The time has come for universal, affordable health care in America," Obama said in a speech in Iowa City, at the University of Iowa's medical school. "My plan begins by covering every American. If you already have health insurance, the only thing that will change for you under this plan is that the amount of money you will spend on premiums will be less," Obama said. "If you are one of 45 million Americans who don't have health insurance, you will after this plan becomes law."

Obama also called for a series of steps to overhaul the current health care system. He would spend more money boosting technology in the health industry such as electronic record-keeping, put in place better management for chronic diseases and create a reinsurance pool for catastrophic illnesses to take the burden of their costs off of other premium payers. His plan also envisions savings from ending the expensive care for the uninsured when they get sick. That care now is often provided at emergency rooms. The plan also would put a heavy focus on preventing disease through lifestyle changes.
That ‘heavy focus’ means he’ll be regulating and cajoling you on what you eat and how you live, under the guise of I know what’s best for you. This all sounds wonderful, those of you with private health will pay less and those of you with nothing will just be covered. But this is the real world and most of us (not leftists and socialists) know all too well that there is no free lunch, someone somewhere has to pay for it.
"To help pay for this, we will ask all but the smallest businesses who don't make a meaningful contribution to the health coverage of their workers to do so to support this plan," said Obama. "And we also will repeal the temporary Bush tax cut for the wealthiest taxpayers." From FOXNews, photo from AP
Yes the old ‘tax the rich’, Obama doesn’t say that he’ll just be screwing over Bill Gates and Donald Trump to fund his grand plans, who says he won’t expand the group benefiting from Bush’s current tax cuts? What happens when those of you working your way up decide, bugger this, why should I break my back working when I just end up paying for those who didn’t? You’ll be surprised at how accommodating leftists can be when grouping folks as ‘wealthy’.

As for the businesses, they employ people don’t they, what do you think they do when their costs go up? What do you think happens to their share price when the market hears of this? What do you think happens to the country’s economy when people start losing jobs and investors start getting nervous. Americans whinge and whine when they pay 20% tax, well how would you like to be paying 30-40% and waiting for the healthcare you paid for? Careful who you vote for, it’s your money one way or another.
