On October 13, 2009, the Citizen Wells blog explained what the Obama plan for Health Care Reform is all about.
All you need to know about health care reform
What is the current attempt by Obama and liberal Democrats at health care reform all about?
- Appeasing their far left core support.
- More control over the American people to get votes.
- Payback to trial lawyers and other big supporters (refer to contribution table above).
- Achieving the goals of far left, socialist, communists who are controlling the party with the goal of redistribution of wealth..
Ultimately what this boils down to is control. Control of the American public to get votes and retain and build power.
An article from Doug Patton, dated Pctober 21, 2009 addresses the control aspect.
“Health Care Bill Is About Control, Not Health Care”
“What do these momentous documents have in common with each other? They all contain fewer pages than the bloated Senate health care bill, S. 1796, which totals a ridiculous 1,502 pages.
In other words, the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, the father of modern Communism, three of history’s most prolific Russian writers and even God Almighty Himself didn’t need as many words to get their entire message across as the self-important blowhards in Congress trying to express themselves on one single issue: health care.
But let’s be honest. What’s going on in Washington right now is not really about health care; it is about control. The Senate leaders, in conjunction with the White House, are doing the same thing they did with the stimulus bill, the omnibus bill, the budget bill and the cap and trade bill. Thousands of pages of rules, regulations, restrictions and, most of all, astronomical spending. They believe that if they so overwhelm the American people with mind-numbing legalese, we will simply take their word for it that this poison pill isn’t going to hurt us.”
“President Barack Obama and the domineering Democrat leadership in Congress never talk about freedom. They whine about “fairness” and “security,” but the word “liberty” is not in their vocabulary. The Founders would have considered the current “reform” going on in Congress as nothing short of criminal. They would rebel against this tyranny as surely as they revolted against the despotism of King George.
One thing on which we can depend: this process will not improve the bill. If this piece of statism passes, the federal government will eventually tell us what we can or cannot eat or drink, how much exercise we must do to stay fit, what we can and cannot smoke (pot yes, tobacco no), whether or not we can have guns in our homes (they’re dangerous, you know, and therefore affect our health care costs) and how many children we can have.
And they will do it all in the name of “health care reform.””
