suppress the vote. Gaffney complains that the Affordable Care Act website asks users if they want to register to vote (other conservatives are also upset about this). Gaffney envisions millions of low-income voters registering, resulting in "a permanent majority demanding government hand-outs – and the end of America as we have known it." More people voting? Why, the implications are positively un-American! Listen:
GAFFNEY: For some time, it’s been apparent that the Obama presidency is promoting creeping socialism. Obamacare’s intervention in, and substantial takeover of, one-sixth of our economy is a particularly ominous manifestation of the administration’s agenda – and evidence of its progress.
Not content with creeping, though, Team Obama’s socialists have broken into a full gallop. That’s the practical implication of a newly revealed facet of Obamacare: Whatever its other shortcomings and outright failings, the health care registration process is being used effectively to compel Americans to register to vote.
The process lends itself to abuse and fraud. And allies of the President say the goal is to register sixty-eight million, mostly low-income voters. If successful, expect a permanent majority demanding government hand-outs – and the end of America as we have known it.
