The Disappearing Value of Hard Work

Read this Larry Kudlow column, and  also read the comments. I like this one by Kurt NY:  "I have no particular issue with someone choosing not to work extra hours to qualify for employer-based health care should they have the resources to pay for that insurance on their own - it's just everyday prioritizing. However, if what we are talking about (and, for the most part, we are), is someone choosing not to work those hours because someone else will be paying that health insurance bill, that is not freeing, it's parasitism. Sure, you are 'free' not to work those hours, but someone else has to pay more taxes to pay the bill for you." (Cartoon by Michael Ramirez.)
