One of the things Obama said when presenting his budget proposal was “Our government is so deeply in debt after what can only be described as a decade of profligacy.” and “We have to address the failure that led to [this crisis], and that includes the failure to rein in spending.” and “It would be a terrible mistake to borrow against our children’s future to pay our way today.”
With these very words he proposes to dramatically increase spending and raise the debt our children must pay. The audacity of the man! Has he always thought we were fools or did he just conclude so when we elected him President?
The American people know the quality of our health care has no peer. We also see what is wrong with our health care system. It is too costly, too complex and so burdened with lawsuits that some doctors are leaving their practices. Those that remain find it necessary to prescribe tests dictated by tort law and not medical need. Obama proposes a plan that fixes none of the problems, adds to the cost, threatens the quality and increases the power of government over the people.
The American people don’t want it. Obama knows they don’t want it. The Democrats know they don’t want it. But the people be damned, Obama wants it, and he is willing to throw even some Democrats under the bus to get government run health care imposed on the people.
Obama’s goal is single payer healthcare. Single payer, just one payer – the government. He who pays has control. He who is the only payer has total control. When speaking to friendly audiences Obama has stated clearly and on the record that single payer is the goal. It may take time, he says, we may not be able to do it in one step. Just as clearly, when speaking to general audiences he denies that it is the goal. To whom is this man lying, to the unions and ACORN, or to the people? It has to be one or the other.
