The Orwellianly-named “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” isn’t going to protect any patients and it sure as hell isn’t going to make health care more affordable, but it does create several thousand new jobs… for IRS agents.
Funny — when normal people think about health care, they tend to think of doctors, nurses, dietitians, chiropractors, nutritionists, physical therapists, dentists, optometrists, etc. But when Democrats think of health care, they think of tax collectors. And in a way, that tells you pretty much all you really need to know about the difference between normal people and Democrats.
Is this what America’s founders risked their lives for — so we could be taxed into oblivion and stripped of our freedom by a behemoth of a government that doesn’t give a rat’s rear end what the people want?
In November we’ll have a chance to do something about this mess. Until then, at least it’s supplying political cartoonists with a wealth of raw material.
