This past election a majority of the voting Americans showed their willingness to accept mediocrity and failure along with all the unintended consequences as long as they were coddled and pandered to.
The immediate consequences were a 700-point drop in the market, the revelation that the poverty level is up 16 percent since the first of the year and unemployment applications hit their highest level in 18 months.
As a result of impending tax increases and Obamacare, Denny's will add a 5 percent surcharge to your bill, Walmart is increasing employee insurance premiums by 13 percent to 30 percent, and Proctor & Gamble will cut 5,700 jobs in 2013.
Red Lobster, Applebee's and Olive Garden are reducing full-time employees to part-time to cut insurance liabilities. Papa John's is cutting hours and raising the prices on its pizzas.
Oh yes, the IRS is adding 16,000 full-time jobs to help enforce Obamacare.
