BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR: IF IT QUACKS LIKE A DUCK…
Let there be no mistake, the current President of the United States favors socialized medicine.
If Americans were listening carefully to the rhetoric during last year’s campaign, they would have heard that the plan that was being pushed by then-candidate Obama is, in fact, socialized medicine. Regardless of whether it is called “single-payer,” “universal coverage,” or, now, [the buzzword of the day] the “public option,” it is socialized medicine.
As more Americans have started to realize over these past few weeks, the current majority (and a few in the minority) party in Washington wants to the government to control health care. The only debate left open is not the principle, but the cost. In other words, comrades, do you want the Red pill or the Pinko pill?
Lest there be any remaining doubt, Breitbart has posted a video wherein the President specifically advocates for a government takeover of health care.
…And while the White House may wonder why posters like this are mysteriously popping up, we suspect there will be many more appearing over the weeks and months ahead. [So far, these posters have appeared in Los Angeles and Atlanta, according to NewsBusters.]
SHOUTING DOWN GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS
In the meantime, as the videos below illustrate, Americans opposed to the government takeover are becomimg more vocal and, in some cases, shouting down their elected representatives.
Meanwhile, as unions and their fellow pushers of the government healthcare takeover spend up to $20 million on advertising and canvassing in August [see our Saturday post on the 10.2 billion reasons the AFL-CIO, SEIU, et al, are spending other people’s money are sending ACORN squads out to neighborhoods].
We close this post with just one question:
As America moves closer to the socialist ideal that many on the left have preached, pushed, and mandated, why are not more Americans happy?
