Everyone is complaining that ObamaCare will remove 2.5 million jobs from the economy. They don't realize the ObamaCare reduction in the work force is part of a 200-year long trend.
"ten-hour" day movement started in 1810, it became the "8-hour day"
movement by 1817, granted in England by 1847. The
less-industrialized French won a 12-hour workday one year later in 1848.
By WW I, most industrialized countries had adopted England's 8-hour day. This cut the effective work force size by at least one-quarter.
1930s child labor laws permanently removed the entire under-16 workforce.
1930s Social Security permanently removed the over 65 workforce. Post WW
II government college loans permanently removed 50% of the 18-25
workforce as they were told they needed college degrees to find jobs.
Obamacare permanently lowers the work week to 30 hours.
Up to 50% of our jobs will be automated in 20 years. It is not luddite to point
out the facts: technology has steadily removed work from human hands for
200 years, and it promises to continue to do so. It will idle the
blue-collar work force first, the white-collar last. The people who
create the robots (slaves) will become rich while the people who are
replaced will not.
The rich are all population control freaks
because they realize that their own factories don't need the manpower.
The idle poor can be fed, but it would be better if they weren't there
at all - people who don't exist don't revolt. The welfare population must remain small
and easily controlled. So, it's in their interests to make sure the
lower classes don't breed. Free birth control in ObamaCare, destruction
of marriage, lousy health care, poverty, females working and/or in
school instead of married at home raising kids - these all contribute to
a steady reduction in the size of the lower classes.
ObamaCare will not be repealed. The ruling classes can't afford to let that happen.
