At least no one can say that the Democrat agenda is incoherent. Every major policy pursued by our current government shares a central objective: to drive up unemployment, thereby increasing the public’s reliance on socialist bureaucrats who will “spread the wealth around.” Until they get Cap & Tax through, ObamaCare is the crown jewel in this regard. According to a congressional report:
The CBO estimates that the legislation, on net, will reduce the amount of labor used in the economy by a small amount — roughly half a percent — primarily by reducing the amount of labor that workers choose to supply, which is more than 788,470 employees.
That’s almost 800,000 more families herded into the Democrat camp — according to theory, anyway. The strategy worked like a charm for FDR, keeping him in power for ages. Unfortunately for Dems, the public has more access to information than it did in the 30s and 40s. This time, we know what’s being done to us.
