Some folks on the right are gloating that certain politicians who supported Obama Care (Affordable Care Act/ACA) are now publicly admitting that it is a “train wreck”. Allow me to advise that the consequences of this train wreck may be more damaging than what they are hoping for.
Some may be delusional if they believe that ACA will be repealed and everything to do with healthcare will just go back to the way it was before. Rather, I can just about guarantee that the “progressive” solution will be a single-payer health care system. We will all be on Medicare. It’s all part of the “transformational change.” As someone familiar with government controlled health care through the VA, I can say from experience that it won’t be pretty. In the end, Sarah Palin, that laughing stock of the liberals, will have been proven to be correct. Here come the death panels.
It continues to frustrate me that so many “conservatives” give Obama the benefit of the doubt, thinking that he is a well intentioned nice guy who just can’t figure out the right policy track. My contention, as I’ve written before, is that he’s an evil man and perhaps an empty suit. But, those pulling the strings are devious and brilliant. So far, their plans are working without a hitch.
Planned chaos and crisis is a technique of the Alinsky school of social engineering. We all remember the famous utterance of Rahm Emmanuel, “Never let a crisis go to waste.” Of course the community organizer in chief studied Alinsky. The radical Columbia professors, Cloward and Piven, advocated a strategy of creating chaos to spur social change. The coming chaos in health care is no accident. It was planned.
Nobody knows who actually wrote the health care law. I doubt that anyone in Congress ever read it before it was passed. You can bet that the 2400 page law was not written after Obama took office. It is thought that much of the law was copied from the health care law crafted by Hillary Clinton and her secret committee during Clinton’s first term. Of course, they were not successful in passing their version.
There was also a group that worked with Obama on health care reform while he was a state senator in Illinois. Dr. Quentin Young was part of Physicians for a National Health Program, a Chicago-based advocacy group for single-payer. The group features Obama as part of its Web site. There is a well known video of an Obama speech to an AFL-CIO meeting where he claims that he supports a single payer government program, but admits that it could not be achieved without first resorting to less radical reform.
Progressives are still pushing for a single payer government run program. Even those in the medical profession who are opposed to such a system can see the hand writing on the wall. This past January, Dr. David Mokotoff wrote an article entitled, “ObamaCare: All roads lead to single payer”. He writes,
When the marketing of ObamaCare began in 2009, I always believed that the end game was for a federal single payer system. Since the present Affordable Care Act, (ACA), was passed in 2010, there has been nothing to convince me otherwise.
Describing the present ACA, he says,
….rationing will then increase, as it has in every industrialized country with national health insurance. Private insurance premiums will escalate, and the populace will become increasingly angry and demand changes. The politicians will throw up their hands and say, “Oh well, we tried to do this through the private sector, but it just hasn’t worked out as we had expected.” Voila: single payer.
