Fast becoming one of our favorite commentators, here's Bill Whittle on why
ObamaCare Obamatax just won't work.
When we make a commodity into a right, their will be consequences.
If housing and food are right, you are under no obligation to do anything for it in return.
Whittle makes the point that we have for years here: making commodities a right will necessarily entail the involuntary confiscation of time, resources and wealth of others. If housing is a right, well, then we guess that contracting firm will be doing your house for free would be a gentler way of looking at it. And kindly add back deck off the master bedroom, would you, please?
Another point made we've been banging on our dinner plate: We don't care what the hell piss-pour life-style choices you make. Well, at least we used to not care. If we are now socializing the cost of healthcare, it suddenly becomes our business to know exactly what you are doing and who you are doing it with. Nothing better illustrated this than that dog and pony show congressional hearing a couple months back involving the 30 yr. old Georgetown Law School student, Sandra Fluke, making a heartfelt appeal for free birth control.
A matter that was once the exclusive domain of the consenting participants was reduced to glorified pan-handling. We take that back. More like pan-handling at gun-point.
Vietnam vet. Going to have sex tonight. Fork it over. God bless.
The entire liberal ideology pretty much imploded on itself at that point.
