…and exacerbate business and workers?

The Chicago Tribune article titled, Former users warn marijuana users of addiction, reported this statement.

“The end stage of addiction is you lose your job, and when you lose your job you lose your insurance,” he said. That is an already underserved community, and we are going to continue to see that exacerbated.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to link an ancient proverb to give an example of the folly being presented by liberal and socialistic government agendas exacerbate business and workers who pay taxes.

Exacerbate Definition

make (a problem, bad situation, or negative feeling) worse. (google)

King Solomon

“The leech has two daughters. ‘Give! Give!’ they cry. “There are three things that are never satisfied, four that never say, ‘Enough!’: (Proverb 30:15)

Excerpt Gils Bible Commentary

and the fire that saith not, it is enough; but let what fuel will be cast into it, it devours it, and still wants more:

What’s My Point?

The article explains how 1 in 10 or 1 in 6 marijuana users will become addicted, perhaps lose their job, their insurance and then serve to exacerbate an already strained for funds government medical network.

Meanwhile, the news reports liberal Presidential candidates making promises to provide free medical care to everyone.

Problem is that not everyone either pays taxes or insurance premiums. If you add an incentive not to have to work to obtain or pay taxes or insurance premiums now being funded by businesses and workers, will that exacerbate the problems in a Nation with a present 22 TRILLION DOLLAR NATIONAL DEBT.

As for the present glee in Illinois that in a short time ten million dollars of taxes from recreational marijuana has been produced to fund everything other than the costs to rehabilitate the addicts who become addicted, will that add to the exacerbations of business and workers taxpayers?  

In My Opinion

One of the problems of Obamacare is it covers evert medical ailment that may occur to an insured including foolish choices they may make that exacerbate needs for medical treatments such as drug addiction, STD, etc. etc.

Frankly, many people now work because they are afraid of losing medical insurance.

In history, a lot of Nations and leaders have failed over time, some lasted longer that the present USA has been in existence, and some a lot sooner.

You Decide

If you are a business or worker, are you exacerbated and concerned about the present paths of governing agendas in process or being proposed by political candidates both local and national?

If your are a business or worker, are you ever exacerbated when you hear government call ourt to you  with the names of the proverbs two daughters?

Regards and goodwill blogging.
