Biden: Healthcare Takeover Is About Nationalizing Insurance Companies Too
Posted By Matthew Vadum On March 19, 2010 @ 4:12 pm In NewsReal Blog | No Comments
As we all know by now, the Obama administration insists the healthcare proposal is needed to control costs. Anyone who knows anything about government programs knows this is a lie. ObamaCare is about introducing government into every aspect of our lives.
It’s about power. Government-run healthcare is the progressives’ Holy Grail and they will stop at nothing to achieve it.
In an interview with ABC’s Jake Tapper, Vice President Joe Biden just admitted this blindingly obvious truth. In a discussion of the healthcare push, Biden baldly stated, “You know we’re going to control the insurance companies.”
If the socialists in support of this plan had the integrity to admit that they don’t give a rodent’s rectum about costs and were to admit that this is really about material equality and redistribution of wealth it must be possible to have a little bit of respect for them.
But they won’t admit the obvious because they know that it won’t sell in America, a tax revolt nation founded on principled hostility to overweening government. Clearly the thugs in Congress and the White House learned well from Saul Alinsky, the Marxist Machiavelli who insisted that socialists had to learn to sound like patriotic, Constitution-loving Americans when making the case for redistributionism. Alinsky wisely advised the long-haired hippies of the 1960s to get a haircut and start wearing ties in order make their radical ideas less frightening to the American public. Alinsky knew that in America honesty about socialism gets socialists nowhere.
Even today the Obama White House barely acknowledges the size and the depth and the intensity of the opposition to its un-American healthcare plan and to its authoritarian tactics.
