Evil is Inherent in Government Programs

A government entitlement program invariably creates great harm and mischief. That is why those who wrote our Constitution limited our Federal government to protecting We the People with the specific intent of not providing money and benefits to the people.
A government that provides money and benefits to the people must first take that which was earned or produced by one person before they can give it to another person. The politician must insure that the recipients of the government's largess are greater in voting strength than those from whom the wealth was taken. Barack Obama's promise to take nothing from the voters in the lower 95% of income earners, but only from the upper 5% of income earners, focused and excited the Democratic Political Machine.
Government programs almost always cost more and provide less than was planned and intended. Politicians realize this and provide cover for themselves for the initial time of the program. Once the program has commenced, others can be conveniently blamed for the cost overruns.
Cover is given to obscure the real costs of government programs. The current version of ObamaCare in the Senate will really cost at least $3 trillion extra over the first 10 years of its full implementation rather than the $1 trillion suggested by its sponsors and supporters. This deception is easily achieved by implementing the massive Medicare cuts and new taxes immediately but not beginning the program benefits until 2013 (after the next Presidential Election) with a gradual implementation of the benefits over the following 4 years. Ten years of tax income would fund only about 4 total years of the ObamaCare program, with an additional $1 trillion needed to make up the projected deficit. After 10 years, ObamaCare will create massive new deficit spending.
Cost overruns occur because the bureaucracies that administer the programs invariably grow. In a bureaucracy, people do not matter. What matters are the elite administrators and their social plan. Money is increasingly diverted from the intended recipients of the plan to the growing bureaucracies administering the plan. The bureaucracies grow and consume most of the money allocated to the plan. The primary function of the bureaucrats quickly becomes the rationing and denial of the benefits of the plan to the recipients.
People suffer and die under government health care plans. This is blamed on the opponents of the plan who invariably oppose the escalating confiscatory taxes necessary to fund the plan. The politicians supporting the plan promise more money for the plan following their next successful reelection.
Socialized health care programs are inherently Evil as they assure rationing and denial of care, a place in line for delayed care, and misery for the patients and for the taxpayers.
