With Obama passing the SCHIP (read SHIT: Socialist Health Insurance Travesty) bill that makes the working poor and middle class subsidize those who make more so they can get off their OWN health insurance and suck off Obama's teat? Here's the scary part: This is just THE BEGINNING. As per Chairman Zero's own words:
"We fulfill one of the highest responsibilities that we have, to ensure the health and well-being of our nation's children," the president said before a cheering audience of families, lawmakers and interest groups. "Providing coverage to 11 million children is a downpayment on my commitment to cover every single American."
So in order to raise the money for the socialistic medicine (and there's more to come that'll make the UK's National Health look competent) they are going to tax smokers an extra 62 cents to pay for the 2 million per American child, so it'll pay for itself, right? In one way, this is stupid. Having people exercise bad behavior to their health in order to gain the funds for the kids' healthcare? "Surgeon General's Warning: Quitting smoking now greatly reduces serious risks to your health, but smoke up since we need to pay for little Timmy's tonsillitis!" They just need to find 22.4 million more smokers by 2012 to pay for this (Has Obama pledged to light up more Newports?).
This is just the beginning. We will see more stupid bills go through, more taxes being raised, losing more and more of our liberty, but HEY! It's OBAMA! He's HISTORIC! Yeah, he's historic alright. I never thought they'd find a president worse than Carter, but somehow they did it. But we will pay for it, along with our children, and our grandchildren once Obama rapes the economy and enacts a socialist utopia and we become (to quote Mark Levin) America with a K.
