When Obamacare was passed, a lot of people said things like “wait until it starts being implemented — it’ll kill jobs, people will hate it and take it out on Dems at the polls.”
That would of course be how it would go down in a place where logic rules the day. Sadly, we are no longer in that place, and we have now pierced the outer atmosphere for a descent into full-blown Idiocracy. Evidence of that can be found in the early reaction to businesses preparing for the implementation of Obamacare.
From the time Obamacare was signed into law, it became clear that Obama and the Democrats had figured out how they’d handle the inevitable backlash: Make sure anger from their sub-stupid base is directed at those businesses being forced into cutting worker hours and issuing layoff notices and not at the people who are responsible for enacting the economy-crippling laws in the first place.
So far that approach is working like a charm.
Class warfare… we ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. The next four years will eventually come to be known as the “going Galt” epoch in 21st century American history.
