Only the dumbest among us believe the politicians saying they can add 20-30 million people to the health care roles with no cost to anyone but the evil rich. But in fact there is no such thing as a free lunch as history has shown us time after time.
The politicians will not impose a straight income tax hike to pay for the free health care. That’s far too honest. Instead they will impose fees, penalties, mandates, and a hundred additional ways to extract money from everyone, including the lower 50% who pay no income tax now.
They are hoping the media will help them cover up what they do, and they are probably correct. And the bottom 50% is probably too stupid to realize what has been done to them.
It will be like the proverbial death from a thousand cuts.
