Government Has Twins! (You Get to Raise Them)

Posted By Nicola Moore On September 3, 2009 @ 5:25 pm In Economics | Comments Disabled

Social Security and Medicare are already tens of trillions of dollars in debt, and if Obama’s national health care program is passed, that will add another $9 trillion in debt [1]. All of that debt gets to be paid for by you, dear taxpayer.

As this clever video shows, that’s like adding 2.3 children to every household in America. Only this government-newborn doesn’t come with the joy of raising one of your own or even an “It’s A Boy!” cigar. All you get is a lousy $400,000 in debt. Congratulations, new parents!
