The big lie
I'm not sure why Team Obama is trying so hard to pretend that their goal is not a complete government takeover of the health care system.
Well, yeah, I do know, it's because the American people are horrified by the prospect of single payer.
But that doesn't change the fact that destroying the private market is the goal, no matter how much White House hacks try to paint Obama's own words as "disinformation," as Linda Douglas did yesterday.
The president's feelings on the subject are crystal clear, the videos don't lie.
Transcript of the second video:
I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that's what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that's what I'd like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.
Can't be much more clear than that, can you?
