Congratulations, America! We’ve turned the page. According to our illustrious president, we are in a new age of security and prosperity. Let the milk and honey flow from the multi-teated state! Come on, grab onto a nipple and start sucking. Our lords and masters will make sure we never know want, because everything is free!
Child Care, free! College education, free! Health care, free! So sayeth the carnival barker behind the dais. You ask, what is the price of admission to this federal government freak show? Why, it’s a life of servitude to the state, yea!
What are you complaining about? It’s free!
You aren’t feeling the love? Obama’s middle class economics model isn’t working for you? Surely, you’re mistaken.
What’s that? Food prices are high? Well, can’t you sign up for food stamps? Under the Obama presidency we’ve had a 50 year record high participation rate. Over 47 million people receive food stamps. What’s one more!
Your health insurance premiums and deductibles have skyrocketed? That’s too bad. I’m sure you qualify for a government subsidy. How about Medicaid? Hell, states are expanding their rolls. How can’t they with all that free money flowing out of Washington D.C.
One saving grace is gas prices are low. But you know, Washington D.C. needs to raise taxes for all that infrastructure that needs to be maintained and built. But don’t worry. I’m sure there’s a government program out there somewhere for the fuel disadvantaged. After all, Obama’s middle class economics is the new paradigm in this classic Marxist page turner.
