From the very start of the process to ram socialized medicine down our throats, many top Democrats admitted that the end product, Obamacare, wasn’t actually the end.
Rather, it was simply a way station on the way to full-on socialized medicine, known euphemistically as “single-payer.” President Obama, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senator Tom Harkin, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius….they’re all on the record early and often calling for “single-payer” and urging “patience” to their followers.
Socialized medicine will come, they said, but first we need to seize government control of the entire health care system, have the Obamacare way station collapse on itself, and then move rapidly to “single-payer.” (For more, and to see the direct quotes from Obama, Reid, Harkin, et al, please see my book, “What The (Bleep) Just Happened?” I have it all documented there.)
That’s been the plan all along. Some of us have been pointing it out all along. Now, it seems, the Left is willing to admit it as well. Again.
Please see this piece by Noam Scheiber in the New Republic. Some leftists now feel free to admit that it was “a deceptively sneaky way” to get to a “single-payer” system.
As I was saying. As the leftists were saying. Only now people are actually paying attention.
