Health care: Liberals Taking vs. Liberal Giving

Democrats in the U.S. Senate have voted to move forward with debate on the health care bill that will cost into the trillions, lead to rationing, raise premiums, cut Medicare for the elderly and disabled, fine those who don’t buy into their program, send them to jail if they don’t pay the fine and tax businesses (ie: employers) that make life changing, enhancing devices such as artificial limbs. And all this when 90% of Americans have health insurance and most like their policies! It ought to tell you something when Congress is so desperate for money that Democrats want to tax Botox (the Bo-tax) and other cosmetic procedures. Smile everyone!

Then again liberals are the caring people, the ones who have the big hearts and in Congress especially the really big wallets. But evidently liberals don’t like to spend much if it means spending their own money. Yours: yes; theirs no. When it comes to charitable giving, those who believe in big government give less than those who believe in limited government. Those from conservative states give more than their liberal counterparts. It reminds one of the quote often attributed to Margaret Thatcher: “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
