Seriously, This Must Be Their Plan

So Obamacare is being fought by Ted Cruz right now and for good reason. I don't think he'll win this battle. But I do think it's a good battle to be fought and here's why:

...earlier this year, Porter’s hours were cut. Her employer cited the Affordable Care Act as the reason, she told The College Fix.
“Then they told us that they couldn't afford to pay us health insurance,” said Porter, 22, who is no longer allowed to work more than 25 hours a week.
So she now has to be on food stamps. One way or another, they are going to get you dependent on them. And then you'll vote Democrat, if you know what's good for ya.

As usual the people who it's supposed to help, it hurts. This is the problem with government. The ideas start with the best of intentions, the favored building material for the elevated bypass to Tartarus. They always balloon up with unintended consequences. Minimum wage laws cause teenage unemployment. Rent control keeps housing unaffordable. Price controls cause shortages. Everything the government attempts to control seems to always backfire. Yet people just believe the constantly in the government to be answer to our problems.

They are the cause. Why can't health insurance be sold across state lines? You hate big business, why set up a system that creates 50 monopolies? My stepson is 14 and wants a job but can't get one because of labor laws. How is that better?

"You want to children to work in mines!" No I don't, I want people who can work and want to work, even teenagers to have the same opportunity and protections that adults have. What the heck is wrong with that? That is the argument a leftist will take you to though. Wanting my 14 year old step son to have a part time job is the same as wanting children to work in mines. It's that ridiculous.

I'm exaggerating? Remember that every criticism of Obama is only because you are a racist. If they can raise that ridiculousness, they can do anything.
