Morning Musings for Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Today, it’s about the IRS, Obamacare, and the real unemployment numbers.
- The IRS is a necessary (said grudgingly) agency, but disliked and unloved. The only issue that I’m currently finding more egregious than than the shifting of $500 million to hire IRS agents to implement Obamacare is the recent Supreme Court decision on strip searches. They got that as wrong as the eminent domain decision.
- Are we a nation of “American Idol” fools, or am I the idiot? Granted, it’s the Washington Post-ABC News poll, but Obama holding a double-digit lead in “who would do a better job of protecting the middle class, addressing women’s issues, handling international affairs and dealing with health care.” And the Romney campaign is doing exactly what to counter?
- Just when you think all hope is lost for November, maybe the 19% unemployed and looking for work will remember whose policies have made this the worst economic/jobs recovery in the history of our country.
- And to finally fill out your morning, by the time Obamacare becomes fully operational and drives the country to bankruptcy as its full economic impact becomes known, if you’re 55 and older and the day comes when you need that “care”, euthanasia will be legal.
