This is exactly why it was always unthinkable that Democrats would have a party advantage of (D+7) this year: it seemed impossible that as many people would turn out for Democrats in 2012 as they did in 2008 when that would mean making Obamacare permanent and forcing companies to layoff millions of workers.
Here in Chicago, I know three or four companies that are downsizing to under 50 employees and another business that’s going to shutter completely because it just won’t be profitable to continue operating under Obamacare.
A while back I went to an event in Peoria and sat next to a man and woman who owned some sort of industrial parts-supplier outfit…and their 40-ish daughter was at the table too. They told me the plan had always been for the daughter to takeover the business from them, but that the succession plan was going on hold until we saw what would happen with Obamacare. This was back in 2010, not long after it had passed in the House. This family employs about 80 people and the daughter was being groomed to continue the business so all of those jobs would be safe…but the owners said that they were just breaking even as it was and with Obamacare there would be no way for the daughter to inherit the company and keep it operational. I bet those people are looking to sell or just close down shop right now.
It’s shocking that Americans voted to subject our country to this…but it might be an instance where people just don’t understand how bad things will get until they get burned by it. Like little kids with a stove. You can warn them all you want until you are blue in the face, but until they get burned they just won’t understand why you keep telling them not to touch the stove.
Americans, it would seem, needed to touch the hot stove and be burned by the full effects of Obamacare in the years ahead.
If you believe God always has a plan, then perhaps this was meant to prevent something even WORSE from happening in the future…if Americans in 2013 and 2014 see how terrible things will get, perhaps that will force a sea change against the Left in the future that wouldn’t have happened otherwise. With several generations of kids brainwashed in Leftist public schools and completely devoted to the cult of Obama, maybe putting Obamacare into practice and having it ruin our economy was the only way to wake people up to the dangers of allowing Democrats so much power.
Hard times are ahead…but perhaps there is a spiritual master plan for why we’re going to have to endure all this.
