EATING WITH A PIG

This past week several major corporations stated that they will be losing over 1.5 billion dollars because of Obamacare. A provision of this health care disaster will result an added tax to employers who do not use Medicare part D for prescription drugs, even though it is cheaper for the employer to provide this coverage through their current providers. The obvious result will be less coverage for the employee, higher costs for the employer, or the true destination of this bill, a complete reliance on a nationalized health care program.

The employers of this great nation provide health insurance for over 35 million Americans. So they are the natural target of the liberal madness that has engulfed the Congress and Senate. With this incremented dismantling of private insurers, they will take yet another step in their pursuit of power by making all Americans dependent on the government.

This step by step destruction of our rights and liberties reminds me of a story the Ronald Reagan use to tell to illustrate the liberals amongst us. It is a fitting tale for the situation we are in today, so please enjoy;

A traveling sales man stays the night with a farm family. When the family gathers to eat there’s a pig seated at the table. and the pig has three medals hanging around his neck and a peg leg. The salesman says, “Um, I see you have a pig having dinner with you.”

“Yes,” says the farmer. “This is a very special pig. You see those medals around his neck? well, the first medal is from when our youngest son fell in the pond, and he was drowning, and that pig swam out and saved his life. The second medal, that’s from when the barn caught fire and our little daughter was trapped in there and the pig ran inside, carried her out and saved her life. And the third medal, that was from when our oldest boy was cornered in the stock yard by a mean bull, and the pig ran under the fence and bit the bull on the tail and saved the boy’s life.”

“Yes”, says the salesman, ” i can see why you let the pig sit right at the table and have dinner with you. and i can see why you awarded him the medals. But how did he get the peg leg?”

“Well,” says the farmer, “a pig like that– you don’t eat him all at once.”

God Bless You All
