Ebola-nomics: Democrats try to politicize Ebola


WASHINGTON, October 9, 2014 — In a last-minute attempt to save political hides, doomed Democrats are claiming their Republican opponents are responsible for the Ebola incident in Dallas.

“Tom Cotton voted to cut billions from our nation’s medical disaster and emergency programs,” said desperate incumbent Senate Democrat Mark Pryor in an attack ad. Pryor said America’s Ebola threat is being made potentially worse thanks to House Republican “austerity cuts.”

Nevertheless, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel told a gathering of reporters that Ebola, the Islamic State and the Russian incursions in Ukraine “dominate. And so, part of the headwind [for Democratic incumbents] was it did make it a little more difficult for us to break through on those middle-class economic contrasts when people were so focused on global issues.”

In other words, economic progress under Obamanomics is not evident enough for Americans to notice without campaign ads and while news distracts the Democrat’s media amen corner.

In fact, the imposition of unforeseen “global issues” proves that no matter how much of our money government takes, while borrowing against the future incomes of generations yet unborn, America’s Progressive Utopia speeds further and further from our clutches. And the middle class, class-warfare dupes that they are, shrinks while awaiting a future that never comes.

Democratic incumbent Senator Mark Pryor sees no limits to government expenditures and taxation. In fact, he views any restraint as a menace to public safety and the Utopian future.

In that sense, the Democratic Party hopes to fulfill the “dreams” of Obama’s father.

In a 1965 article for the East African Journal, socialist economist Barack Obama Sr. wrote, “Certainly, there is no limit to taxation if the benefits derived from public services by society measure up to the cost in taxation, which they have to pay. It is a fallacy to say that there is this limit, and it is a fallacy to rely mainly on individual free enterprise.”

In other words, it’s like Obama Jr. said, “America has to make the investments [government spending] necessary to promote long-term growth and shared prosperity [wealth redistribution].”

Or, as he put it more simply, “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Just like Ebola.

    Ebola yes, common sense no. They invite a sick infected Ebola host into the country, and someone else is to blame. Same goes for the ed 68 virus. They bring in infected adults and “children” and it is a freakin mystery virus paralysing and killing our children. Every other virus has a name for the host country, except this one. The CDC is a useless group of political hacks.

    Like marxism, the “big idea” of today’s liberalism is the notion that a small group of academics and intellectuals are somehow magically entitled to consciously direct the future of mankind.
