Yesterday's verdict by the Supreme Court has taken a full day to set in, but wow, today I feel like shit. America has fundamentally shifted course to a route that may very well lead to its demise. 17% of our nation's GDP has been thrown into bureaucratic hands and will now be a heavy burden on taxpayers going forward. Quality care may be compromised, prices will be regulated and the system will become a typical government mess. Such as Social Security, welfare and other entitlement programs have failed, so will this, and the middle, upper-middle class will receive the shaft.
Today, I feel the heavy burden from the taxes I will be paying in the future for benefits I will never receive. The worst part is, that I feel as if there isn't much I can do. I'm ready to vote in Nov and today I requested Atlas Shrugged from the library to reread (glad to see that all 31 copies in the system were checked out).
I feel as if most of the monkeys on this community will be in the "Atlas" category, working hard to better themselves, all the while paying into a black-hole entitlement system that will never repay us for our work - in addition to our paychecks taking heavy hits, we will also be degraded by the media and community at large for our "greed."
Does anyone else feel this burden? What are you doing about it?
