Pulling the Wagon or Taking a Ride

Posted by Steve Markowitz on December 13, 2013

It takes a special type of optimism to find some benefits within Obamacare.  We will share some with you today.

The Obamacare program and its rollout have been unmitigated failures even by the low standards we often place on government.  This debacle has open the eyes of many, including some that have previously placed significant trust in the benevolence and efficacy of governmental programs.  Given the failure of Obamacare and the likely pain it will inflict on many people, that trust has been severely eroded.  This will not only make passage of further large governmental programs problematic in the future, but also could become the starting point of a movement to defang the federal government’s power.

Blog reader John sent in the video below of Dinesh D’Souza eloquently stripping off the camouflage of government benevolence.  It also defines the issue of an increasing number of Americans who take from a government, which is being supported by depreciating number of benefactors (taxpayers).  While this video was posted on YouTube over a year ago, it’s six minutes are profound and describes an unsustainable direction for the United States.
