“We Told You So America”
When Obamacare was being debated in 2009, Senator Harry Reid clashed with Senator’s Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman over proposed language. The two Democrat Senators echoed the sentiments of Republicans and Libertarians at the time, stating that many provisions within the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” were thinly veiled attempts toward ushering in “Single Payer” health care, a full Communist takeover of the system, which many countries across Europe have adopted over the last few decades.
“You’ve got to take out the Medicare buy in,” Mr. Lieberman said. “You’ve got to forget about the public option. You probably have to take out the Class Act, which was a whole new entitlement program that will, in future years, put us further into deficit.”
Mr. Nelson said he wanted to know the cost of the Medicare buy-in. “I am concerned that it’s the forerunner of single payer, the ultimate single-payer plan, maybe even more directly than the public option,” he said.
The spring legislative session in Washington D.C. has featured a bizarre struggle by the Republican Party to take ownership of Obamacare, bolstering the Libertarian position that the two parties are still one party, continuing an internal struggle that began with the split of the Democrat-Republican Party into the two factions following a contentious election in 1824. What was supposed to be a repeal of the Socialist law, is now leading to the next phase. The pendulum of power will swing back to the Democrat faction in a few years, and the Republican faction will be blamed. The failures will be used as the justification to usher in the original goal of the whole psy-op, single-payer.
While most of the members of the one party system play games before the mass media, Harry Reid is at least being forthright. On Wednesday, Avik Roy wrote in Forbes about a PBS interview with the corrupt Nevada Senator:
When I speak to conservatives about health care policy, I’m often asked the question: “Do you think that Obamacare is secretly a step toward single-payer health care?” I always explain that, while progressives may want single-payer, I don’t think that Obamacare is deliberately designed to bring about that outcome. Well, yesterday on PBS’ Nevada Week In Review, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) was asked whether his goal was to move Obamacare to a single-payer system. His answer? “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”
In one sense, this isn’t shocking. Reid and many other Democrats, including President Obama, have often stated that their ideal health-care system is one in which the government abolishes the private insurance market. Video of the PBS discussion isn’t yet online, but here’s how Karoun Demirjian of the Las Vegas Sun described it:
Reid said he thinks the country has to “work our way past” insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS’ program “Nevada Week in Review.”
“What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” Reid said.
When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”
Reid noted that he and other progressives fought hard for a “public option” in the exchanges as a Trojan horse for single-payer, but Democrats didn’t have 60 votes in the Senate to achieve it.
Not to be willing to suffer the charade by the Globalist puppets in Washington D.C., California has introduced SB 562, “The Healthy California Act”. Despite a failed attempt in Bernie Sander’s Vermont, the left is not deterred. In addition to the California bill, Hawaii, and New York have movements to create state level single-payer. Don Berwick’s failed primary race for Governor of Massachusetts also featured the idea as a plank. The California bill directly references the ironically named “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” in its opening language, and does not mince words:
“This bill, the Healthy California Act, would create the Healthy California program to provide comprehensive universal single-payer health care coverage and a health care cost control system for the benefit of all residents of the state.”
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
(a) The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:(1) All residents of this state have the right to health care. While the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) brought many improvements in health care and health care coverage, it still leaves many Californians without coverage or with inadequate coverage.
The Republican faction is not going to repeal Obamacare and propose a free market solution. The Democrat faction is pushing onward towards single-payer. Health care was 17.5 percent of the US economy in 2014, and is expected to grow to over 20 percent in coming years. You are witnessing the seizure of 1/5th of the US economy by Marxist Globalists. If we continue to allow the puppets of the global banking system to govern this country, it WILL happen. There is only one political solution. Join the Libertarian Party, help us elect a few US Senators. Given the current deadlock, a handful of Libertarian Senators would prevent any bill relating to health care that was not a free market solution from being passed.
You were warned when Obamacare passed, and the Libertarian Party was right. Do not ignore us this time, vote Libertarian.
