The NY Times is officially willing to post anything that supports Obamacare. They are now throwing out red herrings like not supporting Obamacare is like supporting slavery and budding entrepreneurs look forward to sending employees to the exchanges.
An article in the opinion section took to condemning the South for reverting back to slavery by not providing expanded Medicaid – Obamacaid.
The South is always a good target and slavery always draws nods in affirmation from the left. It doesn’t have to make an ounce of sense.
Here you go:
“I [Lincoln] have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists,” he said, reaching out to the breakaway South. “I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”
He was saying to a Confederacy that would enshrine owning another human being in its new constitution: If you like the slaves you’ve got now, you can keep them. It was a lie in the sense that Lincoln made a promise, changed by circumstances, that he broke less than two years later — and probably never meant to keep.
The comparisons of President Obama to Lincoln fade with every day of the shrinking modern presidency. As for the broken-promise scale: Lincoln said an entire section of the country could continue to enslave more than one in three of its people. Obama wrongly assured about five million people that they could keep their bare-bones health plans if they liked them (later amended when it turned not to be true).
…the South is once again committed to taking a backward path. By refusing to expand health care for the working poor through Medicaid, which is paid for by the federal government under Obamacare, most of the old Confederacy is committed to keeping millions of its own fellow citizens in poverty and poor health. They are dooming themselves, further, as the Left-Behind States…
What a metaphor. He must have sat up all night to come up with that one. I was thinking more along the lines of Obamacare enslaving those of us who actually pay taxes.
The Times is working 24/7 for Obamacare.
An article popped up just hours ago titled, In the Health Law, An Open Door for Entrepreneurs, and we are happy to bring the grand news to you.
The Times says that startup business owners will no longer have to worry about insurance and they can concentrate on spending the money on their business.
They found one man, a Mr. Jeyakumar, who said he was somehow able to get insurance and will only pay $74 a month with subsidies. He will now be able to tell his employees to go to the exchanges and he will give them a salary increase to help them cover the cost.
Then they found a businesswoman, a Ms. Petrou who is looking forward to finding plans on the exchanges.
