The Huffington-Puffington Post.com has it all wrong, again, this time on the ACA

The Huffington-Puffington Post.com has it all wrong, again. The HPP opined: "Affordable health care is a key component in our fight against inequality," then went on to bombard the reader with a bunch of statistics that show the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer without mentioning that the rich who got richer were taxed out the wazoo and the poor who got poorer not only paid zero tax, quite often they received Earned Income paid for by the "rich" and soon will benefit from free or heavily subsidized healthcare insurance courtesy of the rich. The outrage would, of course, be somewhat justified if the assumption was that every poor person is a victim of uncontrollable circumstances and the rich were unwilling to help the legitimately poor without government extortion. That, of course, is not the case. The federal government and its policies are responsible for creating more poverty than rich people (arguably, who, unlike the federal government, cannot easily (if at all) create whole classes of impoverished people).  The Motley Blogger does agree with one premise, to be found in the post's headline: "It's Inequality, Stupid." Except, the inequality here is that people who work for a living are getting soaked yet again to support those who won't work or who so screw up their lives that they cannot work. The real injustice here is that government contributes little if anything to changing the dynamics and the forces of poverty, then blames it on those who pay for government and their handouts.
