Boy it must be hard work staying loyal to a man hellbent on destroying the United States.
Barack Obama’s press secretary, Excuser-in-Chief Jay Carney, last week hit bottom (again) by saying that the Obamacare destruction of the U.S. job market is actually a good thing. First, the news he was responding to:
The new, larger estimate of the law’s negative impact on the labor force derives from three factors: (1) Obamacare’s employer mandate, which will discourage hiring and reduce wages offered by employers; (2) Obamacare’s $1 trillion in tax increases, which will discourage work and depress economic growth; and (3) the law’s $2 trillion in subsidies for low-income individuals, which will discourage many from remaining in the labor force. <source>
And now his comments, which were beautifully lampooned in Forbes:
After the CBO review came out, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney published a statement in which he declared, remarkably, that it’s a good thing that millions of Americans may drop out of the work force:
“Over the longer run, CBO finds that because of this law, individuals will be empowered to make choices about their own lives and livelihoods, like retiring on time rather than working into their elderly years or choosing to spend more time with their families. At the beginning of this year, we noted that as part of this new day in health care, Americans would no longer be trapped in a job just to provide coverage for their families, and would have the opportunity to pursue their dreams.”
Bored with your job? No worries—now you can quit, thanks to the generosity of other taxpayers. Want to retire early? No worries—now you can, thanks to the generosity of other taxpayers, and also thanks to the higher premiums that young people will be forced to pay on your behalf. The White House’s apparently sincere belief—echoed by progressive pundits at MSNBC, The New Republic, and the L.A. Times—is that it’s a good thing for fewer Americans to be economically self-sufficient. <source>
So Jay, how does it feel to say things like this?
Run away, my good man, from this diabolical “leader”. No one could fault you at this point — you’ve done your service, been loyal, given tortured explanations of how Barack Hussein Obama didn’t lie when he said if we liked our health plans we could keep our health plans, how he didn’t know about Benghazi, how he didn’t know about IRS targeting of political enemies, how he had no knowledge of the Fast and Furious gun-running to Mexican drug gangs that left a U.S. border agent shot dead, how the constitution somehow does not pertain to his presidency, how it’s not his fault the Middle East is increasingly radicalized and emboldened in its hatred of the West, how having Air Force One buzz the Statue of Liberty was not a willful symbolic resurrection of the nightmare that was 9/11, and so many more that must leave your breath and your soul smelling of rotting flesh.
Enough already, save yourself.
