It’s time for an “I am Spartacus” moment in response to Henry Waxman’s witch hunt against businesses who call attention to the massive financial consequences of Demcare.
You remember the famous scene in the Kirk Douglas epic — when recaptured slaves are asked to rat on Spartacus in exchange for leniency, and instead stand up and proclaim themselves to be Spartacus at risk of their own lives:
What if countless business owners large and small from across the country showed up on Capitol Hill to stand in solidarity with the CEOs of AT&T, Deere, Caterpillar and Verizon? What if the business each came with a sign publicizing their write downs — and ennumerating all the other costs (jobs lost, benefits cut, expansion plans canceled) that Demcare will impose on them?
Reader Joe H. e-mails: “This is a golden opportunity to reverse-demagogue this hideous clown. Every publicly held company that is required to disclose the ruinous financial effects of Obamacare should do so and queue up for the show-trial. What a beautiful scene. Company after company standing in front of the cameras with…signs showing huge, unprecedented cost problems.”
Yes, it is a golden opportunity to stand together, blow the whistle, and fight back against the Demcare bully boys.
Update: Via BreitbartTV, here’s my call to arms on Hannity last night. Salt Lake City agrees:
