Progress? Not so much. Citizens let President Obama know that “progress” doesn’t entail punitively taxing others, nor does it entail turning adults into dependent children.

But, hey, the children are only 26 years old! Here’s a little tip for you, President Obama: Most people believe that if their children expect them to pay for their health insurance when they are 26 years old, then they have, you know, failed as parents.
Also, by insanely claiming that 26-year-old adults are still children, President Obama is punishing all working parents. But, then, he does think that parents are “punished” by children.
Why do you hate parents, President Obama?
