Obama, in delivering on his campaign promise to the oxymoronic “private medical insurance” corporations, is going to make purchasing one of its defective, extortionary products mandatory for all U.S. citizens.
As The New York Times reported on Sunday:
[I]nsurance companies have never wavered. Starting two weeks after the 2008 election, they have said they would accept greater federal regulation of their market practices if Congress also required everyone to have [private-sector] health insurance.
[Obama certainly delivers for his overclass patrons, doesn't he?]
This, of course, necessitates a constant river of Reaganesque lying to voters.
One of the latest whoppers came right in Obama’s woeful and patronizing (one wonders what percentage of those who voted for him fit under the belittling label “my progressive friends,” i.e. all those who expected Obama to deliver at least some beneficial, public-spirited changes) “health care” speech last week. It was this:
This is patently, brazenly, Ronald Reagan-style, false.
Purchasing automobile insurance is not mandatory. If it were, it would long ago have been turned into the very kind of public, single-payer, not-for-profit system that was, is, and ever will be the only possible solution to the nation’s medical insurance scandal/disaster.
Clearly, we radicals, progressives, and realists need to find ourselves some actual friends.
