It’s not us; it’s you. It’s all you.
In the election in which you sought and gained ballot access while repeatedly disregarding pleas of the actual Democrat candidates- candidates who wanted nothing to do with you-- and just wanted you to sit down and shut up, you got beat.
And now Democrats know how Chicago feels.
Just like you did with your “hometown,” you used the Democrats to build a legacy for yourself. And then left them to burn and rot.
How’s this for a legacy? In addition to losing Libya, Egypt (only for a time), Iraq, Afghanistan and parts of Ukraine, you now have some other failed states to put in the loss column.
You lost Illinois.
You lost Maryland.
You lost Massachusetts.
You lost Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Montana, North Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia.
Those are only the statewide races you lost.
It was all the more fitting that it happened on the day on which I got the news that my insurance premiums are going up by $3,000 per year.
I know you are math challenged, so let me add it up for you.
That money that I’m paying for increased premiums will cost the average worker who needs to save for retirement $475,770.12 over a 35 year working career.
That’s a house. That’s an Ivy League education. That’s the difference between being able to afford a standard of living that includes things like food and medicine or being stuck on another crappy government program that you designed, pushed and walked away from so it could rot and burn.
I’m not the only one this happened to either.
According to the Washington Examiner 2014 saw healthcare premium increases across the board, regardless of age.
“Average premium increases ranged from a low of 22.7 percent among 63-year-old men to a high of 78.2 percent among 23-year-old men,” writes the Examiner. “Among women, the range was 35.1 percent for 30-year-olds to 44.9 percent among 23-year-olds.”
