The American dream

By From page A4 | January 08, 2014

For President Obama the American dream seems to be to take from those who have spent their lives working, saving and paying taxes and giving their money to those who are merely whining. This means doubling Medicare payments for those above a certain income level. It means giving Obama phones — free cell phones with 250 minutes — to millions, including the homeless. It means taking away health care from 6 million who bought the insurance policies on the open market. It means charging the young and healthy more than the old and chronically ill. It means raising the cost for seniors on the Medicare Advantage plan and trying to eliminate their plan altogether.
