Barack ODracula: Putting On His Santa Claus Suit To Hide The Blood

Obama Santa ClausPresident Obama’s shining image has dulled as his Obamacare’s costs and complications have come to clarity in the public’s minds. His cure: Obscure the money he’s taken by switching to money he wants to give. We note that Obamacare collects from the same folk whose cost of living will be increased by a higher minimum wage, so the President’s proposed gift is an illusion. Not to worry; few will notice.

A special fillip is added to the current push; the Prez, besides going for a $9 hr. minimum wage, endorsed his union supporters previously moribund fast-food industry campaign for a $15 minimum. Apparently, burger flipping should be a family-supporting career.

Last years ‘national campaign’ by the unions flopped; too few McDonald’s and Dunkin’ Donuts workers were willing to walk out and set up picket lines. Now we expect paid pickets and a larger commotion.

As always, politicians raising minimum wages are using other people’s money to buy votes. People forget that their higher wages will result in higher prices; they forget too that high labor costs attract mechanization. There’s a new burger maker coming out that replaces three kitchen worker…

Back at the White House, the Prez will be looking for still more money to siphon out of the listless economy; further extending unemployment benefits looks good for that. The primary unanswered question: Where is the money to be found? The Prez hasn’t answered that one. Can’t recall folk asking Count Dracula where he finds his blood, either…
