According to its proponents, Obamacare will enable us to work fewer hours or not work at all. Because of this, we’ll be able to stay home and “spend more time with our families.” At night, we can “tuck our children into their beds.” And, we can “follow our dreams, become entrepreneurs.”
We’ll be able to stay home? With so many workers “following their dreams,” there won’t be enough workers to build your home.
“Tuck your kids in bed?”
Tuck them in with what? Who’s going to manufacture our cozy blankets? Our delicious comforters? (They’re great today, aren’t they?) Sorry, not enough workers. Takes a lot of people working for that blanket manufacturer to make enough blankets and sell them to you. (Those workers are all at home, trying to tuck the kids in bed without any blankets.)
If the product is to be made in another country, who will be at the corporation to travel there and do the deal? What will they travel in? Need a jet? Need a ship? A container? Sorry, there aren’t any workers to arrange that for you, and besides, who will be there to build the jet, the ship, the container? Who will distribute the product?
“Tuck them into their BEDS? What beds? So many are at home following their dreams that employers, corporations, find there are too few people looking for jobs. Sorry guys – no beds for you.
You guys like to eat? Me too. Too bad. No trucks are being made now to distribute the food we eat. Railroads are going out of business. No one to maintain them. Not enough workers to build them. No workers to nail the rails to the railroad ties. And besides, no one is making nails anymore! Paper companies have no workers to manufacture the tickets, builders can’t build the train stations, corporations and companies can’t manufacture the booths where you buy your ticket. No one would be in those booths anyway – They’re all “spending more time with their families.”
Like your Jimmy Choos? Beautiful, gorgeous shoes? You’re out of luck. You have to get the leather (how do they do that?), design the shoe, cut the leather, and find workers to make those beauties.
Like your children to have shoes? Want them to have quality boots for our tough winters? Can’t be done. Not enough workers to make that happen.
UTOPIA? More like HELL.
