This post is dedicated to all the voters who actually believe Bernie and Hillary are going to give you all that “free stuff” if you help get them elected. Your greedy, low-information, selfish desires epitomize everything that is wrong with this country right now. Oh, I’m sorry, did that offend you? Was that a micro-aggression? Good, because your entitlement ideology offends me.
For starters, the most basic truth of all is: nothing is ever “for free.” Somebody is always going to have to pay, which liberals and socialists are fine with as long as they think they aren’t the ones paying. The most recent and most obvious example of the ignorant liberal voters thinking yet again they would get something for free is ObamaCare! Obama and his administration officials repeatedly lied over and over again to the American people. I’m sure you recall the broken promises that ObamaCare would “lower the average family’s insurance premiums by $2,500 a year” as well as the reassurance that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” If you need a reminder, you can watch it here or here now.
Why did democrats lie to you? They knew if they told the truth no one would vote for it. In fact Jonathan Gruber, the architect of ObamaCare, stated the “stupidity of the American voter” helped Congress approve ObamaCare. The “stupidity” that he was referring to was specifically aimed at describing liberal voters who put Democrats in office, since they passed this law down a party line vote. If you don’t believe me, that’s fine. You can take him at his own word since he said it on multiple occasions to different audiences, all caught on video.
Since the passing of ObamaCare, how have the folks who helped get it passed reacted since it’s begun to be implemented? Well, let’s take a look at proud Obama voters like Cindy Vinson of San Jose, California and Tom Waschura of Portola Valley, California who helped elect and re-elect President Obama. Their insurance policies were replaced with pricier plans that were changed to conform to the new requirements of ObamaCare. Not only did neither see a reduction of their premiums by $2,500, but Vinson’s plan increased by $1,800 a year for her individual policy, and Waschura’s increased by nearly $10,000 a year for his family of four. When asked about this increase, he said, “Of course, I want people to have health care. I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."
Typical. He was fine with Obamacare when he believed others would be stuck with the bill, but he’s shocked by the reality of his own healthcare costs going up.
And of course we shouldn’t forget Peggy Joseph who was so excited for Obama to become the President. If you recall, Peggy believed that her vote for Obama meant she would no longer have to worry about expenses, such as putting gas in her car or her mortgage. Like a typical liberal, she believed Obama and the Democrat policies of giving out free stuff would take care of everything she needed. Where is she now after two terms of Obama economic and social policies? Documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert tracked down Ms. Joseph in 2014 to see how all the “Hope and Change” worked out for her. Sadly, it would appear the promises have not lived up to the reality for poor Peggy; she now says “we needed a change, a change for the better, not for the worst. He had a very big voice, just like the Wizard of Oz…What I learned was to never trust the Wizard.” Ouch. It would great if all liberals could learn the lesson that nothing in life is free.
