In George Orwell’s “Animal Farm,” the pigs exert total control over the farm by passing one simple law:
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
Orwell’s novel was a devastating critique of Communism. But the Democrat party, with its totalitarian impulses no longer disguised or in check, are the new pigs, the new rulers of the post-modern American Animal Farm.
ObamaCare reduces health insurance and medical care—complex, voluntary interactions—to a one-size-fits-all system. The American people are moved around like chess pieces. This is the DNA of the left; to create a universe of dumb bureaucratic systems that impose rigid order on millions of individuals.
This is not to say that the state should never intervene. For instance, we have empirical evidence that without polio vaccines, children will get this dreaded disease. Thus, it makes sense for government to mandate vaccines.
But the empirical evidence for s state controlled health care system is that it results in second rate medical care for the majority of citizens. We need only look to Great Britain, Cuba, or the socialized medicine of the Arab world, to see quite clearly that state controlled health care does not work for a majority of citizens. Not to mention the ruinous taxes and deficits that will, eventually, bankrupt the state.
In fact, the Democrats who passed ObamaCare were well aware of the misery they were about to impose on the American people. We know this because the Democrats authored specific provisions within ObamaCare to protect themselves against ObamaCare.
Welcome to the Democrat Animal Farm.
