Free stuff is great when someone else is paying for it

Original post made by Another independent, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Aug 21, 2012

Two ZeroHedge entries today that caught my eye. First one highlights the fact that more people today get money from the government than give.:

Second, how according to the CBO Obamacare is being paid for via 18 new taxes. Subsidized healthcare is a right is the mantra these days, just as long as you personally don't have to contribute to pay for it.

So which Presidential candidate is promising more free stuff on almost a daily basis and expecting others to pay for this free stuff? Who will likely get re-elected this year?

Some of the little satisfaction I will get out of this insanity is to watch the different progressive factions turn on each other in the coming years when this all grinds to a hault. And it will - the markets will ensure this.

....eventually, they will run out of other people's money. But, not to worry, they'll just print more!

To the folks on the dole above, 'they' are the pandering dems you continue to vote into office that use productive people's money to keep up your supplies of Ritalin. I'm sure O loves it when voters are high when they go to the polling booth.....he gets more votes from people with impaired judgement. Why else would anyone vote for that half wit?
