The Wall Street Journal has a great opinion piece by Kim Strassel today. In it, she highlights the contradictions inherent in Obama’s ideas. Here are a couple of highlights:
“For his next trick, the Great Obama will jumpstart the economy, and he’ll do it byraisingtaxes on the very businesses that are today adrift in a financial tsunami!”…“Mr. Obama will, with a flick of his fingers, show them how to create more jobs with less money. It’s simple, really. He has a wand.”
“Mr. Obama will now demonstrate how he gives Americans the ‘choice’ of a ‘voluntary’ government health plan, designed in such a way as to crowd out the private market and eliminate all other choice! Don’t worry people: You won’t have to join, until you do. Mr. Obama will follow this with a demonstration of how his plan will differ from our failing Medicare program.” Nice.
