In the movie Batman Forever, the Joker plays the role of the progressive in America, and he creates an idea that tricks the general public, including police officials. When things look like the Joker is losing, he says, "It's all part of the plan." I wrote about this in more detail in this post.
The Joker, like progressives, has a plan of taking baby steps in order to change society to the way they want it to be. We can see examples of the progressive plan in the paper daily, and the most recent example are the recent failures of the Healthcare Plan.
Of course McDonald's is denying this claim, yet that's beside the point.
Something bad is happening right now, yet, as the Joker would say, "It's all part of the plan." Yet like the Joker, the progressives will never say this in public. If they were completely honest, they would never get elected or re-elected.
Fox News (as you can see here) is reporting that McDonald's is one of many companies who pay low income wages, and offer minimal health care insurance programs, is pondering dropping the health care program altogether because of "unintended" premium increases.
The report, which was initially reported in the Wall Street Journal, notes that, "Trade groups representing restaurants and retailers say low-wage employers might halt their coverage if the government doesn't loosen a requirement for "mini-med" plans, which offer limited benefits to some 1.4 million Americans. The requirement concerns the percentage of premiums that must be spent on benefits."
This would involve 30,000 workers currently working for and receiving health insurance through McDonalds. Since the report was released I've seen this topic discussed many times on CNN and Fox News and on the Today Show. I've heard many of the interviewed saying things like, "We are surprised of this outcome. The purpose of the new Health Care Law was to get more people covered, not fewer."
They also have said things like, "I am shocked. This in an unintended consequence."
They are shocked because they do not know the people who wrote this bill. The people who wrote the bill are progressives. They knew the American people wouldn't support a law with a single payer healthcare program, so they had a plan to get what they want.
Progressives have a solution. It would give everyone healthcare. Yet that solution is single payer, and not popular with the people. So they passed the Obama Healthcare program knowing it didn't have the single payer provision in it.
Yet, as we know, progressivism is creating a revolution by baby steps. They take one step at a time. They know the Constitution doesn't allow for a revolution, and the people would never go for it. So they do the following:
1. They create a solution (single payer healthcare
2. Create a crisis (healthcare crisis)
3. When system crashes, they are right there in the waiting with their solution.
You see, there really is not health care crisis. The U.S. Healthcare system is the best in the world. Yet liberals convinced some people there was a crisis. They had the media and teachers talk about it, and hence we have a crisis.
Then they passed whatever they could get regarding health care reform. It wasn't the "ideal" system, because their ideal system would be single payer. So they put stipulations in the bill that would cause the current system to fail, and when it fails people would have no choice but to come begging for single payer.
One of the stipulations to make it fail was that insurance companies would be forced to pick up people with pre-existing conditions. These people are debts. To allay the cost, insurance companies would be forced to raise premiums. And that's exactly what's happening.
Because of these increased premiums, companies like McDonalds are faced with the dilemma of simply dropping health insurance altogether. Many smaller companies will be sure to follow.
Most insurance companies are already claiming they will raise premiums by 20%. It's all part of the plan.
To those analysts on TV, this is a crisis, it's an unexpected consequence of Obamacare. Yet to you and me who know progressives, we know it was not an unexpected consequence, it was, as the Joker said, "Part of the Plan. It was all part of the plan."
It's true. The democrats planned on companies like McDonald's dropping healthcare plans because they are too expensive. Yet it wasn't supposed to happen until after the 2012 election. That's why most of the plan doesn't take effect until 2014, so democrats wouldn't get blamed for it.
Obama says he wants to make the system better. But to make the system the way they want it to be -- the progressives that is, the current system has to be destroyed. It's all part of the plan.
Trust me folks: it's all part of the plan. The only way to stop the train is for conservatives to take over the House, the Senate and the Presidency in 2012.
