To The Daily Sun,
Paula Trombi of Meredith wrote to The Daily Sun supporting Medicaid expansion in N.H. under the headline, "Doesn't Medicaid expansion speak to the kind of society we want to be". Good question? Do we want America to be seen as the biggest WELFARE provider in the world because its citizens can not support themselves? That people fail in such huge numbers there is no alternative but to nipple them to taxpayers at the state and federal level for perpetuity. While refusing to recognize and acknowledge the heightened taxation required to fund loosened welfare has the DIRECT CONSEQUENCE of forcing even more millions OUT OF THE MIDDLE CLASS that has been shrinking for 20 years. Is that the how we want America to be seen in the eyes of our enemies and global competitors?
When are bleeding-heart socialists like Paula ever going to grasp the only way possible to reduce poverty and dependence is through economic policies that vigorously stimulate investment, growth and job creation. Policies that focus on poverty directly through handouts and re-distribution (like Obamacare) only INCREASE the problem as we have seen for five years. If expanding welfare and dependence on government worked, why do the millions dependent on government keep increasing? We have had straight 70 years of easing and expanding the welfare definition. I challenge any person to show ONE PLACE where it has been effective in REDUCING POVERTY. There is no argument what so ever about lifting the the poor out of poverty. The disagreement come entirely in the method to accomplish it. If Paula or anyone else has EVIDENCE that prove generous government benevolence reduces the numbers in poverty, PRODUCE IT. No need for a personal attack, just produce the EVIDENCE. We all respect facts! All I ask is that liberals stop trying to B.S. their way into more bankrupting, sure-to-fail policies from BRIBING, government on the Trojan horse of benevolence all while trying to SHAME others in the process for not buying the "snookering job". The only sure cure to POVERTY is a JOB, not a HANDOUT!
The Supreme Court decision made it crystal clear. The federal government was BULLYING and coercing states with the Medicaid CRAM-DOWN under Obamacare and removed it. Paula wants the BULLYING IMPLEMENTED. SHE LIKES BULLIES. Government is trying to BRIBE states with a carrot to entice states to take over the care and COST for millions more poor. Bribe MONEY starts high, then dwindles quickly. The states are then are stuck with paying endless billions more for the poor out of STATE REVENUES for eternity. These MUCH HIGHER costs will then SQUEEZE money from every other much needed cause including education going forward. Then the LIBERAL screams. . . WE CAN'T CUT EDUCATION SPENDING! FACE IT. Government has over promised FIVE TIMES more than it can ever deliver or WILL EVER DELIVER without totally killing the MIDDLE CLASS to pay for it. The latest CBS news poll on Nov. 20 shows an ALL TIME record of 61 percent of the public now are OPPOSED to Obamacare and an all time LOW of 37 percent give Obama a favorable job approval rating. It proves Americans do not like to be LIED TO, and they do not like being BULLIED by government, democrats, Obama or Paula.
