Conservatives would rather their points be heeded beforehand than be proven right afterward. That said, we’re proven right again.
We have been arguing that one of the very worst aspects to ObamaCare is its destruction of freedom. Contrary to the historic goals of liberals to “fundamentally transform” America into a form of European socialism, Thomas Jefferson rightly said that, “With all the defects in our Constitution, whether general or particular, the comparison of our government with those of Europe, is like a comparison of Heaven with Hell.”
“The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.”
Hear him say it on Youtube.
Thank you for your rare moment of inadvertent honesty, Rep. Dingell.
When Barack Obama signed this 2,700 page monster into law yesterday, he said, “These reforms won’t give the government more control over your health care.” But that statement is simply untrue; otherwise over 16,000 new IRS agents wouldn’t need to be hired to enforce the mandates, now would they?
The Reid bill could just as easily be called the “Secretary Shall Bill.” It references the “Secretary” 2,185 times and it uses the phrase the “Secretary shall” a shocking 725 times. Each time it is granting a power to whoever is appointed Secretary of Health and Human Services, instead of empowering individuals.
But it’s even worse than that: ObamaCare creates a whopping 159 new federal agencies to force you to do what liberals want, and to prevent you from doing what liberals don’t want.
Individual mandates requiring you with the full power of law to purchase health insurance from the Reich’s “approved list” of insurance salesmen. Sixteen thousand new IRS agents to poke through your personal life to make sure you did so. A Secretary of Human Services run amok with all kinds of new powers administered through 159 new federal government bureaucracies.
Democrat Dingell couldn’t have expressed it better: he and his fellow Democrats have labored “to put the legislation together to control the people.”
And as of yesterday, they succeeded.
And, amazingly, they aren’t done taking power and freedom away from the people. Only days after they took over health care, Democrats are already planning an even nastier takeover via a public option bill. This ugly, demonic monstrosity will only grow, and grow, and grow.
They can’t stop themselves. They will continue usurping power and spending trillions of dollars until the country implodes or they are booted out of office.
Vote for freedom. Vote the Democrats out of office.
Otherwise, prepare to live in the rat maze:
