As expected, the Democrats’ assault on the free market is not letting up. Recently, his eminence Barack Obama unveiled plans to control the rates that insurance companies can charge as part of his new revamped health care initiative. This, of course, will reverberate through the entire health care system, pushing quality down across the board while allowing the government to control one sixth of the economy. The winners are the government and those big companies that are opportunistic enough to go along with the Democrat neo-monarchists, to quote Romney, who run this country. This is an acceleration of the new Socialist model in America, the one that uses corporations to monopolize power in the hands of the state, by enacting price controls, individual mandates, small business mandates, penalty fees, higher taxes, and larger bureaucracy. All this big government control in one fell swoop. Of course, the Democrats want to frame this recent proposal in populist terms, saying that recent rate hikes by certain insurance companies show that they need to be regulated, especially in light of the current recession. So here’s the logic: in order to alleviate the suffering caused by government intrusion into the economy through interest rate manipulation and government pressure on lending institutions we need another, stronger dose of government intrusion. Make sense? This comes from the Harvard law professor, the “Spock” (as our media christened him)… from the community organizer turned president. This man is either grossly incompetent for failing to understand the causes of our problems or exceedingly brilliant for pushing us along the road to socialism at a breakneck pace. Either reason is enough to throw this man out before he finishes destroying America.
