Nothing sickens me more than a story I’m about to share with you. Nothing disgusts me more than watching free individuals flock to a government program like it is the new shining light in their world. They flock to “free” government handouts as if they actually believe they’re “free,” such as nobody has paid a dime for them.
Here is a story from McLatchy on this subject:
WASHINGTON — Two weeks after President Barack Obama signed the big health care overhaul into law, Americans are struggling to understand how — and when — the sweeping measure will affect them.
Questions reflecting confusion have flooded insurance companies, doctors’ offices, human resources departments and business groups.
“They’re saying, ‘Where do we get the free Obama care, and how do I sign up for that?’ ” said Carrie McLean, a licensed agent for eHealthInsurance.com. The California-based company sells coverage from 185 health insurance carriers in 50 states.
This isn’t shocking considering how President Obama has been teaching his followers that their freedom and liberty can only be expanded under new federal programs. Of course, the exact opposite is true but don’t let that get in the way of creating more Democrat-voters.
It reminds me of these saddening sound bites which came out earlier this year from the City of Detroit:
Obama’s personal “stash” is you and I, the United States taxpayer. These people waiting in line don’t care, they just want their payday from Obama since “they love him” and “that’s why they voted for him.”
The same will hold true with ObamaCare except that some will be perturbed to learn they won’t quite yet be getting the “free” health care they’ve been promised. Furthermore, it will never be “free” since we’ll all be paying tremendously increased taxes in ways we probably haven’t even imagined yet.
When I observe individuals who cannot see past dependence on government programs, I yearn for them wishing they would regain the motivation and independence away from government mediocrity. There is so much more, so many better ways to live life other than waiting on the next government program to get your payout.
President Obama has helped to further the entitlement attitude, he has done nothing to try and empower individuals to achieve their greatest. Reading the story on people calling up to “sign up” for the free ObamaCare brought me back to the sound bites above.
