Kamala’s Obamacare for Rent

Obamacare for Rent

Here’s how it works:

Democrats create a problem through overregulation and government control.

The problem causes the cost of something to rise.

So Democrats decide the way to solve the problem is through regulation and government control.

The solution causes the cost of something to rise even more.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

This is what happened with Obamacare.

Healthcare costs too much largely because of overregulation and government control.

The Democrats decide to make healthcare “affordable” by increasing overregulation and government control.

The “affordable” healthcare causes prices to skyrocket.

And now this losing formula is being advanced once again by Kamala Harris. This time to make rent “affordable” in those housing-strapped enclaves in California.

California’s housing crisis was caused largely by government regulation that so restricts the ability of anyone to build housing. This caused a housing shortage. Which, in turn, forced housing costs through the roof.

But rather than urge California to dial back the regulations that caused the housing shortage to begin with, Kamala believes the solution is to force taxpayers throughout the country to pay a rent subsidy to those who can’t afford California’s onerous rent.

It’s the stupidest idea since Obamacare.

Every time the government subsidizes something, the cost increases.

And here’s why.

There’s no motivation to make rent affordable when the landlord knows that the government that made the rents so expensive to begin with will cover the costs by way of a taxpayer confiscated subsidy.

It happens all the time.

Look at the student loan situation.

The Federal Government guarantees student loans which mean even if someone can’t afford to pay it back, that loan will be guaranteed by taxpayers.

Therefore colleges and universities have zero motivation to make tuition affordable. They can keep jacking up the costs of college knowing full well they’ll get their money.

Thanks to the American taxpayers.

This Obamacare for Rent is an idea so stupid only Kamala Harris would think it made sense.

What never occurs to her – or any Democrat for that matter – is the idea of not spending more than you can afford.

But the other thing that never occurs to someone like Kamala Harris is tracking the cause of the problem.

She never asks herself “Gosh, why is it housing costs in California are so damn high?”

Because if she did, she’d be forced to acknowledge that it is government regulation and control that causes it.

This is the problem with Democrats. They cause a problem then decide the solution to the problem is double down on the things that caused the problem to being with.

And the end result is always the same.

The problem ends up costing people more after the Democrats attempt to “solve” it.

Because at the end of the day, Democrats don’t want to solve the problem.

What they want is redistribution of wealth.

And that is at the heart of every single one of these schemes.

In fact, Kamala pretty much acknowledges that her Obamacare for Rent is about redistribution.

It’s not extra money they earn themselves. And it’s not extra money because the government is taxing them less.

That extra money in their pocket will be money that used to be in your pocket.

Like I said the other day, Democrats believe that your money doesn’t belong to you; it belongs to the government.

Obamacare charges more for the healthy in order to subsidized others. So your premium is not only paying for your insurance; it’s also covering the costs of other people’s insurance so they don’t have to pay as much.

And her nonsensical “Rent Relief Act” is Obamacare for Rent. So in addition to paying for your own housing costs, you’ll have to foot the bill for other people’s as well.

In other words, the “relief” in the Rent Relief Act is at the expense of those who will get no relief.

In fact, instead of relief, Kamala is demanding you carry more of the burden.

Democrats man. They just can’t keep their grubby fingers off of your money.

Now why on earth would anyone vote for that in 2018?

    This is a perfect example of Hegel’s Dialectics. Create a problem, offer a solution, create a new problem. It can go on forever. The Federal Reserve was built on this fraud, as was Obamacare, etc, etc.

    Jerry Bown: Our state is in a real mess. And I’m not going to give you any phony plans or snappy slogans that don’t go anywhere. We have to make some tough decisions. We have to live within our means, we’ve got to take the power from the state capital and move it down to the local level, closer to the people. And no new taxes without voter approval.

    He lied! California Democrats always lie and cheat.

    Oh it isn’t just high in California due to lack of building. You cannot leave your border open, increase demand, then ignore the demand.

    You also have fires adding to the cost and those are out of control due to rabid environmentalism…but hey let’s ban straws!

    All Democrats; not just Cal.

    Let me give you a painful, personal experience with an immoral, dishonest Dem.
    In ’76 I not only voted for ; but was a proud, vociferous supporter of the man who said:

    When I am President I will erase the IRS code, abolish the IRS, fire all IRS agents. Maybe in their new jobs some of them will actually do things to help Americans.
    When people ask me how will we pay for government without an IRS; my answer is that I will cut government in half by ’80. I will do this with ZERO BASED BUDGETING!

    I was the only resident of “Mahogany Row” who openly supported Gov. Carter. With my help he won.

    My boss (I think to punish me) sent me to several ZERO BASED BUDGETING seminars in ’77. The 1st was “great” – got to do a lot of drinking (Any Jarhead saying he stays sober all the time should be looked at with the “Gimlet Eye”!) on the boss’s dime. The 2nd on my conscience got to me. When I got back to work I went to the CEO (MY friend, even if he was GOP) and said, “lloyd please do not ask me to go to any more ZERO BASED BUDGETING seminars. I admit my President is an immoral liar – and I was both foolish and naive to have believed him”. Lloyd smiled an said something like “Learned your lesson?”

    There were probably 15,000,000 – 20,000,000 conservatives voting for JImma in 76 who where were “Mad as Hell” by 78 and helped Ron win a landslide in ’80. I count myself in that group.

    Again virtually all Dems lie. Dems from NY, Ga, as wall as Cal!
