he President's health care law is only eight days old, and already it has cost our economy billions of dollars. Late last week, AT&T alone took a $1 billion charge because of the impact of the bill, and the consulting firm Towers Watson told the Wall Street Journal that the total hit this year will reach nearly $14 billion."
Why? Because "businesses across the country realized that the cost of abiding by Obama's new regulations will be quite high.... It will cost the makers of John Deere tractors $150 million. It will cost 'Caterpillar, $100 million; AK Steel, $31 million; 3M, $90 million; and Valero Energy, up to $20 million.'
"Sounds something like 'Armageddon' to me."
It's even worse than that, comrade boys and girls.
Not only has "wireless giant Verizon realized the legislation is going to force their operating expenses up to such an extent that they've 'warned (their) employees about... new higher healthcare costs'" but "[t]he world's second-largest commercial-plane manufacturing company Boeing Co. is planning to take a charge of $150 million in the first quarter of this year. This charge has come into effect owing to the impact of the U.S. health care reform law on the company."
Conclusion: "implementing Obama's healthcare reform is what's going to drive costs up, while repealing it would keep costs where they are (or would allow the market to eventually drive them down)."
Oh, and senior citizens comrades, "the truth is that benefits for seniors, like plans covering prescription drugs, are greatly diminished under the new legislation."
Keep that particular Øbarmageddon in mind, too, when you go to the polls this November.
In the meantime, as the impact and experience of the DemØfascists's sinister theft of your personal and economic freedoms starts to really hit hard and sink in, here's a bit of light reading for you to simmer bring to a roiling boil over that same, hopelessly corrupt and villainous pit:
Farewell, happy fields,
Where joy forever dwells! Hail, horrors! hail, Infernal World! and thou, profoundest Hell, Receive thy new possessor — one who brings A mind not to be changed by place or time. The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven. What matter where, if I be still the same, And what I should be, all but less than he Whom thunder hath made greater? Here at least We shall be free; the Almighty hath not built Here for his envy, will not drive us hence: Here we may reign secure; and, in my choice, To reign is worth ambition, though in Hell: Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.
