With Tuesday’s State of the Union speech looming and with threats of higher taxes, small government writer Seton Motley stated that he
“believe(s)in the Yellow Pages Rule: If you can find it in the Yellow Pages, the government shouldn’t be doing it.”
Motley wrote in The Daily Caller, Tuesday that
“just before the 2008 election, soon-to-be-President Barack Obama “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” His transformational aim? To by any means necessary repeal the private sector – and replace it with government. “
“ObamaCare is an excellent example. The law’s architect is – who acknowledges the heads-government-wins-tails-we-lose nature of the law. In 2012 Gruber “we’ll have to revisit single-payer” – i.e. government-only health care. And in 2014 he “if you like single-payer then ObamaCare has to succeed.” No matter what, we all get government.
Please read the rest of Motley’s piece at the Daily Caller, here. It’s too good of a preview to miss. He goes on to compare Obama to Hugo Chavez.
Also in the speech tonight, The President will discuss the so-called “Net Neutrality” proposal. The NC Beagle will have more on this in a later post today. Look for it.
