There are numerous stories about the employees being affected by the government shutdown and we are only two days into their financial nightmare. Understand that I’m not wishing for, or happy about, anyone losing their income, but wait a minute… the shutdown is only temporary — Obamacare financial losses are long term, if not permanent. Why aren’t those Obamacare affected employees/former employees as important as the government ones?
Listening to everyone carry on about how unfair this all is, the thought “entitlement” keeps coming to mind. It’s as though the government employees are entitled to their jobs, though no one else is entitled to theirs. It’s as though everyone else is considered expendable and simply collateral damage.
I get it.
The news media is headed towards government run organizations.
Government employees are protected, while private sector is destroyed.
Then we come to the government being in complete control of every aspect of our lives and deaths.
Orwellian fiction is fast becoming our 21st Century reality. And so few seem to notice what is happening around them or realize how they themselves are being led to what to believe and not believe. As for now, it is a tragedy that the government employees have lost two days of pay, while a shoulder shrug that so many private sector workers have lost their jobs or the hours they were counting on. Where is the outrage for their long term lack of pay? Where is the fight to get the job killers talking and fighting to get the private sector workers back on the job? Oh, that’s right… the job killers are the ones fighting to keep Obamacare intact regardless of what devastation and destruction it causes.
Government workers = entitled to job and pay.
Private sector workers = expendable and entitled to nothing.
This should be all it takes to open the eyes of the willing-blind. Do you now see by the actual “Victims of Government Shutdown vs Victims of Obamacare” where we have come to be and where we are headed? We should all be more than a bit concerned. Is Obamacare, as is, really worth it?
