As we discussed yesterday, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reports that Obamacare will reduce the size of America’s labor force by some 2.5 million full time equivalent (FTE) workers by 2024.
The response from the White House and its propaganda mouthpiece, the New York Times, that this is a good thing is simply appalling. I am reminded of the Superman comic book Bizarro world where everything is in reverse. And so it seems in the Obama administration, where work is bad, staying at home for government subsidies is good, and the “fundamental transformation” advances.
Why work when you can just stay at home and receive your guaranteed government income? Every day we move closer to the end goal of the Cloward-Piven strategy.
Avik Roy of Forbes provides his take on this bizarre assertion emanating from the White House,
The CBO wasn’t responsible for the most amazing thing that happened yesterday. That title belongs to the Obama White House, where Press Secretary Jay Carney claimed that 2.5 million Americans leaving the workforce was a good thing, because they would no longer be “trapped in a job.”
Trapped in a job? So now President Obama will liberate us from the toils of actually earning a living by just paying us to stay home and produce nothing. And exactly how, more importantly who, will be generating the resources to free us from being trapped in a job?
Shall we just borrow more money ad nauseum, ad infinitum? Apparently yes, which is why Obama will go down as the president who doubled the nation’s debt on his watch. Remember, it was $10.67 trillion upon his arrival, it’s now $17.3 trillion — and for those low information voters, $10.67 trillion was the total amount accrued by every previous president. The other option is that we shall just tax those who work, build, create and innovate in order to meet the progressive socialist utopian dream.
So what will be the incentive to work?
