I’m beginning my first road trip for work under the Era of Obamacare this morning. I start in Charlotte, head to Baltimore, then off again to spend the night and most of Wednesday in Pittsburgh. And yes, as Dan mentions below, PatriotPartner and I are headed to Los Angeles on Thursday for a long weekend.
How will this new Era of Socialism Utopia treat me as I travel the TSA-mandated skies of America? Will people be nicer now that they have a new bloated entitlement program that will bankrupt this and successive generations? I haven’t seen it yet. The TSA agents and US Airways ticket agents had the same scowl on their faces as they did last week.
But haven’t they heard that we are in the Era of Sunshine, Unicorns and Lollipops? I mean first Obama raised his hands and single-handedly stopped the 15 foot Chilean Tsunami from ravaging Hawai’i. He did tell us the seas would fall after he was elected!
And now everyone is walking around with the statisfaction that we all have healthcare coverage. Nevermind that our taxes will go up significantly. Nevermind that the cost of healthcare will continue to rise. Nevermind that the premiums that the middle class pays for their health insurance will also go up. And nevermind that those who are covered by Domestic Partner benefits will be the first to be dropped when the Individual Mandate is enforced.
Nah, what is really important is that the Obama Presidency was saved!
Funny, the Americans walking around the Charlotte, NC airport this morning look as worried and stressed and anxious as they did last week.
I guess it really isn’t funny at all.
