We got to cut the size of government and Obamacare is the best place to cut!!!!

We got to cut the size of government and Obamacare is the best place to cut!!!!

 

During the big-spending Bush years, economic and fiscal people inside the Administration often would sympathize with my complaints about bad policy, but say that there was nothing they could do since all the big decisions were being made by the political types in the White House.

In other words, Karl Rove and his crew were the ones who helped encourage Bush to hurt the country for short-run political gain.

So you can imagine I’m reluctant to give favorable attention to anything associated with Rove, but this new video from one of his organizations is too good not to share. The Department of Health and Human Services has a video contest to sucker gullible young people into signing up for Obamacare, and here’s the satirical gem put together by Crossroads GPS.

Obamacare: if millionaire celebrities can afford us, why can’t you?

And since we’re mocking the Obama Administration’s wasteful video contest, let’s enjoy a great Lisa Benson cartoon on the same topic.

Cartoon Obamacare Video Contest

Perhaps not quite as good as my all-time favorite Benson cartoon, which perfectly captures Obama’s fiscal policy, but still an excellent contribution to the debate.  I also very much like her fiscal cliff cartoon, this Keynesian economics cartoon, and this one about jump-starting the economy with tax hikes.

In conclusion, let’s remember that young people are suffering for reasons other than Obamacare. Here’s a video from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation that looks at four examples of how Obamanomics is especially bad news for those under age 30.

How Big Government Undermines Your Future

Published on Jun 11, 2013

This mini-documentary from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation highlights the devastating impact that big government has on America’s youth, who are ironically also its strongest champions.

Four major challenges facing today’s youth: 1) High youth unemployment, 2) Unreasonable healthcare burdens, 3) Poor returns from Social Security, and 4) burgeoning student loan debt. http://www.freedomandprosperity.org

Though, to be fair, everyone is suffering from the President’s statist policies. As shown by these charts from the Minneapolis Federal Reserve, the United States is enduring the weakest economic recovery since the Great Depression.
