The American family makes less than it did in 1989. (wapo.st/1bBiYoe) Over the last 4 years, American families have seen a drop of $3,040 per household. (bit.ly/16thrsy) Today we learn that Obamacare will increase health spending by $7,450 for a typical family of four (onforb.es/18lbu3z).

At one point in history, the most learned experts on the planet thought the Earth was flat. We laugh at those people now because empirical evidence shows the foolishness of their beliefs. The empirical data is trickling in: The impulse to create wealth through the government does not work.
