Warren’s child-care plan fails Economics 101


From – Orlando Sentinel – by Jeff Szymanski

We’ve become immune to government paying for people’s housing, food, health care, school lunches, etc. Worse, increasingly we expect, even demand, government pay for these and more. So, it may not raise eyebrows when Sen. Elizabeth Warren calls for universal child care and that child care workers be paid comparable to teachers.

Both ideas likely get applause when uttered in audiences with the poor, single mothers, and day-care workers. But what if we stopped and…

Every single plan or solution, whatever you want to call it, fails economics 101. Socialism isn’t about providing sound economic or political solutions that actually solve problems. Never has been. Socialism is strictly about government control of virtually everything concentrated in the hands of the so-called enlightened few, so that the masses can be managed for the “common good”. Which is defined as whatever the enlightened few think that means on a daily basis. It is a fundamental waste of both time and energy to expect any socialist plan to make economic sense. Nothing any of the so-called Democrat candidates is proposing is about sane, rational, economically sound solutions. It is about gaining absolute power, so the people can be reduced to the role of virtual slaves whose only role is to serve their masters running the government.

Karl Marx modeled his so-called new world order on his love for the old style, pre-Magna Carta aristocracy of Kings and the royal nobilities having an absolute right to rule over the serfs. The whole idea of the masses having any rights, being able to own property and controlling who their elected representatives in government were was viewed by him as the reason he did not have what he considered to be his rightful station in society. So his manifesto was the desperate rantings of a self-absorbed failure unable to cope with his own personal lot in life.

His manifesto has become the blueprint for every other loser who harbors the same delusional vision that they have somehow been wronged by an unjust society and deserve to rule “the people”. Thus the only way to solve that is through destroying the current political and economic system and returning society to the bad old days of absolute rule by one person. All under the guise of selling “economic and social justice” solutions to an increasingly dumbed-down American jelectorate thanks to a public education system dominated by like-minded socialists.

Senator Elizabeth Warren is another looney toon Democrat promoting more socialism. Her “child-care” plan may sound appealing to her liberal-minded political colleagues and to people looking for more government handouts at the expense of other Americans. But take away the rhetoric and gift-wrapped “catch phrases” and you’ll find the devil is in the details; it’s merely another “progressive” power grab using the time-tested principle of OPM (Other People’s Money). As The Sentinel article notes, there are already generous federal tax credits for child care. We don’t need another white elephant costing taxpayers even more billions that’s basically designed to help Elizabeth Warren get elected. I have a better question for Senator Warren: If you’re so concerned about child care, why don’t you concentrate on persuading your fellow Democrats to give President Trump more funds to care for the children of “illegals” who are already being housed in over-crowded DHS facilities? A few extra billion would be nice . . . Apart from the $2 million price tag just for diapers that DHS had to purchase more recently, money for additional beds and facilities for these folks would be a grand gesture. Think you could come down from your high horse long enough to consider doing what you were elected to do?
