The Dumbplumber finds inspiration in strange places. So it was just a few days ago that he read that healthcare demands in Utah are far lower than other parts of the country. Gee, whoda thunk it?
A Utah has a large population of Mormons,
B Mormons, for the most part, don’t drink alcohol; don’t smoke; don’t do drugs; don’t eat to excess; don’t consume junk food, soft drinks and many are vegetarians.
C Mormons tend to family life instead of a wild and crazy single life. They are often active in sports, civic activities and recreation. They take care of their own instead of relying upon public financed handouts, programs or entitlements.
D Mormons, for the most part, are very self reliant, industrious, and hard working.
And they don’t tend to fight, but if Obama tries to shove his Obamacare down their throats, they will fight to the end. They have every right to resist a “one size fits all” federal penalty, when their healthcare costs are a fraction of the rest of the nation.
So there you have it. Besides the Muslims--who believe that insurance is a form of gambling, the Christian Scientists--who believe that God will heal them and now the Mormons--who will be penalized for staying healthy, there are probably millions more reasons that this Plan is a farce and unconstitutional on its face.
But in this day and age--as compared to 7 months ago--we will probably have this travesty pressed upon us and enforced with the threat of arrest, fines and incarceration. God, it sucks to be us.
