I often wonder what the real motives of politicians are. The healthcare law that was supposed to be the end-all and be-all of all laws, touted as the best way to help all Americans does not provide health insurance for everyone and as of today has 729 approved waivers to the law. These waivers create a competitive advantage for those companies and unions, which the list is littered with, that the Obama Administration deemed as above the law. This is how free markets are destroyed. It is another kind of economy altogether when the government picks the winners and losers.

Today a new report has surfaced of Obama’s plan to tax every car by the mile driven, pathetically titled: “The Transportation Opportunities Act”. Combined with today’s historically high gas prices, this makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. It is clearly an economically destructive policy. However, in reality, through regulations and exemptions, winners and losers will again be picked. The friends and donors of the politicians will be just fine and the rest of us will have to survive on even less.

Or the President simply wants to destroy our economy. It does not make sense.
