This is SO not surprising:
I came across this by watching Glenn Beck. He credited Verum Serum for the video, and then improved it. Only for some reason my browser doesn’t access Fox News video. Just to give full credit to where it is due, and to direct attention to what may be an even better damnation of the liberal-Obama agenda on health care.
Some great quotes:
“A public option will put the private insurance industry out of business and lead to single-payer” – Rep. Jan Schakowsky (to wild applause).
“Someone once said to me that this is a Trojan horse for single-payer, and I said, ‘Well it’s not a Trojan horse, right? It’s just right there! I’m telling you! We’re going to get there. Over time, slowly, but we’ll move away from reliance on employment-based health insurance – as we should – but we’ll do it in a way that we’re not going to frighten people into thinking they are going to lose their private insurance” – Dr. Jacob Hacker, New America Foundation.
“This is not a principled fight. This is a fight about a strategy for getting there, and I believe we will” – Rep. Jan Schakowski
We see that there is no intention of telling the American people the truth; rather, the idea is to keep the American people from realizing what is happening until it is too late. And the people who are running this deception-campaign don’t give a damn about principles, but only about the ends they are trying to impose.
Verum Serum is on top of this: they also have videos revealing that prominent Senator Russ Feingold sees the ultimate goal of the health care plan to be a single-payer universal health care system.
They have a very good article to show that there is a clear agenda to sell a “public plan option” while smuggling in universal health care by poisoning the health insurance industry. That article includes this statement by Rep. Jan Schakowsky with a corresponding video.
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and co-sponsor of HR-676 answered criticisms from single-payer advocates. She said the public option is not a compromise, but a strategic step toward the single-payer system and the elimination of the private insurance industry…
The public option is simply the opening salvo against the private sector, Schakowsky and other speakers said.
Both Schakowsky and McNary stressed the need for solidarity among health care reform activists, in order to build mass support and momentum toward the goal of a single-payer system.
Liberals such as Schakowsky are literally boasting at liberal rallies for Obama’s healthcare initiative that their government-provided healthcare plan will put private insurers out of business – ending any privatized system.
The American people need to wake up and realize that they are NOT choosing any sort of compromise between a private system and a more government-controlled system, but that the Democrats are determined to usher in a total-government controlled nationalized socialized healthcare system based on the failed European model.
We have frankly known this was coming since the so-called “Stimulus” bill was passed. And even back then, we learned that the bill would ultimately create a rationing system that would result in the premature death of senior citizens as bureaucrats determined that their care was too expensive.
Aged-based health care rationing will be the cornerstone of any Democrat universal healthcare plan. You can count on it. Bottom line: it is a fact that the largest consumption of health care resources occurs in the final six months of one’s life.
The problem is that there is no way to know exactly when that “final six months” actually is. Take a 75-year old woman with cancer: she may very well die in six months without treatment; but she might well live another 20 years if she HAS treatment.
What you need to do is decide RIGHT NOW whether you want a bureaucrat making that assessment based on a chart in some office in Washington, rather than you and your physicians.
D. James Kennedy made a prophetic statement:
“Watch out, Grandma and Grandpa: Because the generation that survived abortion will one day come after you.
And that day of reckoning is coming under the first president to come from that very generation. Unless we stop him.
As a PS, Obama in his speech today claimed that 46 million Americans are uninsured. That claim is false, and in fact is an implicit statement as to his intention to cover illegal immigrants.
My mother – who is nearing her mid-70s – has been undergoing treatment for an aggressive form of breast cancer. The oncologist repeatedly said that the chemotherapy mortality studies did not even include women in her age group. In hindsight, I reflect on those words and realize how easy it would have been for some bureaucrat to deny her lifesaving treatment.
And when I realize that my mother – who I would throw myself under the path of an oncoming bus to save – might well someday be denied essential treatment so that someone who doesn’t even belong in this country can gave full access to our medical system, I am enraged.
