Obamanomics is the art of convincing everyone that someone else will pay their bills.
Here's Heritage's Chart of the Week: Nearly Half of All Americans Don’t Pay Income Taxes. Of course, according to Democrats, the people who are already paying everyone else's bills still aren't paying their fair share.
America has become a train with too many cabooses and not enough engines precisely because our government incentivizes people to live off other people's labor. The reason our Founders limited voting rights to property holders was because they knew if others had the right, they would simply vote the property away from the rightful owners.
No, I don't believe we should return to that system, but I do believe we should actually do what Democrats only say we should do: have everyone pay their fair share. Everyone needs skin in the game, even if it's a small amount.
We are on a dangerous precipice here. Once the majority of Americans have abandoned any concerns for actually paying the bills, the spending will accelerate and the people who were paying everyone else's bills will simply flee. It's not an exaggeration to say that at that point our republic will collapse.
