Obama Nation: " ...dream of a life of care-free welfare dependency."

Bud Norman writes a wickedly delicious column about the CBO report that predicts that ObamaCare will mean that 2.5 million will lose their full-time jobs.
The report projects that the law will result in the loss of 2.5 million full-time equivalent jobs in the next decade, leave 31 million people still without health insurance but paying for the privilege, add $1.4 trillion to the federal deficit, cause millions of Americans to lose the health insurance plans that they liked, and wind up costing the average American money out of his paycheck. Given that the law’s eponymous president repeatedly promised that it would spur economic activity, insure everyone, wouldn’t add a single dime to the deficit, anyone who liked his health insurance plan could keep it, and the average American would wind up with an extra $2,500 in his paycheck, it seems fair to say that things aren’t going as intended.

He then unloads on the hapless Jay Carney, who - and you can't make this up - actually tries to sell the idea that losing your job is a good idea:
By far the most entertaining portion of White House spokesman Jay Carney’s juggling act was his insistence that the 2.5 million lost jobs is proof the law’s unexpected success. After correctly noting that the report does not blame the job losses on disincentives for employers to provide jobs, and without noting that it also said such an effect might well occur when the delayed employer-mandate at last kicks in after the mid-term elections, Carney seemed proud that CBO found the initial job losses would result from Obamacare’s disincentives for employees to accept low-wage jobs rather than relinquish their health care subsidies and other benefits. As Carney thus explains it, those 2.5 million lost jobs mean “Americans would no longer be trapped in a job just to provide coverage for their families, and would have the opportunity to pursue their dreams.

Any Americans who don’t dream of a life of care-free welfare dependency probably wouldn’t put it in such poetic terms”

While it may seem ridiculous to us now, but to the Left's Left who are in thrall to the writings of Karl Marx, not having a job is actually the ideal goal.

“In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.”

Of course this was written by a man who didn't hunt, fish, or rear cattle.  Instead he spent his time in the library.  And who is this "society" who regulates the general production?  In the mind of the Left that would be the hordes or regulators that go forth like Viking raiders from academia via Washington. 

Of course the Obama Palace Guard (formerly known as the press) immediately swung into action telling us that the "free money" coming from Obama's Stash makes it a great thing that more people can now go on the dole.  We can hardly wait for them to go hunt, fish, herd cattle and become critics after dinner.  Yeah, that's what they will do.  Here's a handy chart from Zero Hedge.

Just think of nascent Great American Renaissance of poetry, art and music about to burst forth from this mass of people just aching to fulfill their dreams --- unless their dreams happen to include GOOD-PAYING jobs with, you know, “benefits” and other such bourgeoisie accouterments.

Dontcha just love it when a plan comes together….and it is…
