Every 4 years, right around election time, the libs like to remind us of how much bigger the gap between rich and poor in this country has become. They are usually able to drum up some professor type, supposedly an economics porfessor, who reports that, once again, the gap has widened, and may get worse.
Last night the gap was widened again by our Congress and soon our President. While the libs shout "Hooray" because all Americans are now covered by the new welfare style of healthcare, the gap that libs love to inform us all about, will grow.
There is a part of human nature called incentive. If we desire someting, we will strive to gain it. That is the reason most of us get up and go to work everyday. Anytime that someone will give us what we desire, instead of us having to work for it, we will take it. Take a look at a neighborhood where welfare is rampant. Free housing and food. Why should a person bother to work?
There will always be a certain segment of society that is content to take what is given to them. Just give them the government check every month, and leave them alone. While they will be jealous of those who have more than them, they will never quite have the gumption to do what it takes to "work" for a better life.
On the other hand are the folks who will work harder no matter what. They do not want to simply exist, they want to excel. Take something from them and they will get it back, plus some. These are the achievers. They are not content.
Just like with any kind of socialist program, a little more incentive has just been removed from the average American's life. Once again, the libs brought it on under the guise of helping.
Prepare to see more jealousy in America.
