    Now they tell them!

    President Obama’s enemies often accuse him, in the starkest political terms, of crudely acting to shift resources toward his political base: Green energy donors; single women; Latinos; African-Americans.

    But the next 12 months are likely to reveal the opposite. Imminent elements of Obama’s grandest policy move, the health care overhaul known as ObamaCare, are calculated to screw his most passionate supporters and to transfer wealth to his worst enemies.

    The passionate supporters are the youth, who voted for him by a margin of 60% to 36%, according to exit poll samples of people 29 and under. His enemies are the elderly: Mitt Romney won 56% of the votes from people 65 and over. And while one of ObamaCare’s earliest provisions was a boon to the young, allowing them to stay on their parents’ insurance through the age of 26, what follows may come as an unpleasant surprise to many of the president’s supporters. The provisions required to make any sort of health insurance plan work — not just ObamaCare, but really any plan of its sort — require healthy young people to pay more in health insurance than they consume in services, while the elderly (saved by Sarah “Death Panels” Palin from any serious attempt to ration expensive and often futile end-of-life care) consume far more than they pay in. There is always a push and pull, however, and this year will be spent laying plans to shift the burden further toward the young.

    BuzzFeed - Obama prepares to screw his base

    We’ve been pointing that out forever.  Smith tries to turn it around as a good thing — that Obama doesn’t only stick it to his enemies — but try explaining that to the kids who thought they were getting Obamacare with their Obamaphones.

    Time to bring back this photo from 2008?

    My dad used to say, “make sure the screwing you get is worth the screwing you take.” He also said, “don’t let your alligator mouth overload your hummingbird ass.” Somehow both are appropriate when discussing politicians in general and Obama in particular.

    How could he do this to them? Doesn’t he understand who they are? They’re the next generation. They’re our kids. The promise of our future.

    You know……….. morons.
