How Dare They

I can't believe my health care premiums went up this year either. They've only gone up a combined 300% over the last 10 years. Obviously, this last year was Obama's fault. I can't believe gas is high either. It's not like gas shot up to $4 a gallon after 9/11 and we started wars in two countries.

I also can't stand that Obama has added to the debt after Bush wasted Clinton's surplus, the nerve of someone doing something so unprecedented. I also can't stand that we currently have the lowest taxes in the last several decades thanks to these Bush and Obama guys. They should've raised taxes like Reagan did. As a middle class American, I protest the $400 tax credit I got that Obama shoved down my throat.

I can't wait until the Republicans have full control again. Then they can do real things that will create jobs. We can reduce government spending, that way nobody will be spending money here. That consistency should be good for the economy.

We can ban abortions, creating jobs by putting abortion doctors out of work and increasing the future population that will compete for jobs. A surplus of workers should cause wages to rise.

We can reinstate Don't Ask, Don't Tell so gay soldiers can't fight for their countries and put a Constitutional ban on gay marriage so that gay people can't spend money on weddings. Gay money hurts the economy.

We can ban Sharia law in this country so that Muslims can't pray five times a day and are forced to drink alcohol.

It's equally important that we deport young people who were brought into this country illegally by their parents who are tax-paying otherwise law-abiding citizens who have even served in our military to protect this country. We have to make them pay for the crimes of their parents without giving them a chance to make things right.

We can further reduce taxes on the rich. That way, corporate executives can have more money to spend on private islands outside the country. It's the corporate tax rate that matters for big businesses, not the personal income tax, but we needn't worry about that.

We can go to a completely laissez-faire capitalism, even abolish unions, so that businesses can pay workers as little as possible in order to pay their CEOs as much as possible, turning America into another third world country so that we can compete with foreign labor. Obviously, charity will feed and house all the hungry, un-housed people and cover their medical expenses. After all, charity has had thousands of years to work. Just look at how it's success now means nobody has to worry about food, housing, or medical bills.

It's not like the USA is a country with a sense of community where everyone should pay into some sort of social safety net in case they might someday need it. It's not like there should be some sort agency to protect consumers, to protect us from poisons in the air and soil, to keep roads open for transportation, or the internet open for information.

Obviously, the Democrats were wrong for using the Republican idea that everyone who can afford insurance must buy insurance so that the cost goes down for everybody. That this part of the law hasn't yet gone into effect and health care costs have continued to rise is obvious proof of the failure. We should have continued with the model that hospitals must provide un-reimbursed aid to the uninsured, the costs of which they pass on to everyone else who does pay.

Also, the crazy health care reform bill requires that most of the money collected on premiums actually be used for health care. This is an insult to the excellent business model of using every tactic to deny health care claims so that health insurance CEOs can get richer. I saw nothing unethical, immoral, or evil about that.

Lastly, how dare small businesses get a tax credit for buying their employees health insurance and more impoverished people get access to Medicare. We don't need a social safety net because as we know today, a time where the rich are richer than ever and taxes are low for everybody, impoverished people get all the help they need in the form of charity. All their needs are met.

It's not like the government should use some sort of tax incentive to fix the economy by increasing domestic hiring and increasing wages. Although, that would be simple and the only real fix.

If you agree with this as I do, vote Republican. Otherwise, I guess you could vote Democratic if you think that makes sense.

[Update: I received notice that my health care premiums have lowered for 2012. Also, some insurers have been lowering their projected increases due to the health care law's requirement that most of our premiums be used for health care. How dare they indeed.]
