When I saw this story, the only thing I could think of is that those on the Right warned us that this is what the Left was actually after with Obamacare. Then I realized just how many of these type of “I told you so” stories have been run since Obama was elected and I had to wonder: “How many times must one side be proven correct before the other side starts to listen?”
Reid said he thinks the country has to “work our way past” insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS’ program “Nevada Week in Review.”
“What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” Reid said.
When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”
They have been after a national healthcare system all along, and they fully intend for the government to run it. But make no mistake: the drive for national healthcare is NOT about helping people. That is just the sales pitch, and they use it because it appeals to the greed in all of us. But this is not the ultimate goal. No, the goal is control!
