Back in the days when the Democrats were breathing the rarified atmosphere they were living in after their left-wing coup in 2008 took over the White House and both houses of Congress, they thought they could do anything they desired. They didn't need bipartisan dialog to write new laws, they didn't need public debate, they didn't even have to read the fine print of the laws they were told to vote on. That's what then Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi actually said, remember? So without debate or open discussion the Democrats created the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, subsequently known as ObamaCare. They wrote the law behind closed doors in the back rooms of the most nontransparent administration this country ever had.
And without the give and take of bipartisan negotiations or the compromises to appeal to alternate points of view, the Democrats created a law that did exactly what they wanted it to do. Fail.
While the rumors of this new law were leaking out, something called public opinion began to swell in vast opposition to what this law was being described as going to do. And the liberal news media worked overtime to dispel the rumors from Republicans about the Death Panels and high costs, all of which have subsequently been confirmed. Socialized Medicine was not part of the culture of America. But the back room powers behind the Democratic Party paid no heed to what the public wanted. Barack Hussein Obama, who once described himself as The One who would cause the rise of the oceans to slow went out on a campaign to calm the troubled waters with promises of Hope and Change. And LIES such as "If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it." which he repeated 37 times in 2013. Never mentioning, of course, that his landmark legislation redefined the basic standards that existing healthcare plans had to meet in order to remain, which most did not. Minor details such as these that were always ignored by his unindicted co-conspirators in the left-wing news media that fell over themselves in abject adoration of his messianic image. So in passing, ObamaCare became law with only Democrats voting for it and later on Democrats were taking all of the credit for it. Then the rules and regulations began to be written. And written they were, some 20,000 pages counted to date. A most complete blueprint for disaster.
There were so many convoluted rules that murmurs of discontent began to rise within the most loyal ranks of Democratic supporters. Starting with Congress itself, the elected members decided they wanted no part of it for themselves or their families or their staff. Then the diehard unions who were all loyal Democrats wanted to be exempted from it, too, and exemptions were granted by executive fiat in the hundreds. Then as the deadline approached and the rules became public, employers began looking for loopholes and found that only full-time employees working 40-hours a week had to be covered. So millions of employees suddenly had their work week reduced to 30-hours. The public discontent mounted.
Then in the months preceding the implementation date, insurance companies began sending out a flood of cancellation notices and the true meaning of Obama's LIE about keeping your healthcare plan finally hit the fan. If anything could top this mountain of dung it was the web site designed for Americans to use to seek out and sign up for their new insurance coverage. In true political fashion, the contract to create the web site was not put up for competitive bid. It was handed out to a company run by a former classmate of Michelle Obama. Of course no one bothered to investigate the credentials of the recipient of the 800-million dollar contract so it only came to light after the web site crashed that the company behind it, CGI International, had a record of failure. But the crashed web site only contributed to the failed concept of ObamaCare and millions of Americans who were being forced to find insurance coverage were not even able to do so if they wanted to.
So the greatest liberal minds in the nation, working in unison to create the dream legislation of their careers all produced nothing but a worthless, unworkable fiasco. And we are really supposed to believe this was all an accident?
If the public opposition to Socialized Medicine was being rejected by the single-minded Democrats they did in fact take care to make their plan vastly different to quell the fears. So why design a healthcare plan that was intended to create havoc and disrupt a major part of the U.S. economy? Why put at risk in an election year the very Democrats who had placed their careers on the line to support it? The answer is part of a scripted plan to make the leadership of the Democratic Party come out looking like heroes. When all seems to be lost, and no hope can be found to fix the disaster, Barack Hussein Obama will offer a solution that would have been totally rejected a few years earlier. ObamaCare wasn't designed to be the ultimate healthcare plan for the nation, National Health Care was. The so-called Single-Payer System whereby every American will receive "free" healthcare paid for by the government. This is the utopian dream of every Marxist-Socialist. From Fidel Castro to the Soviet Union to the British Empire. This is the system used by our good friends to the north in Canada. It is so good that Canadians flock to the United States for medical treatment. It is so good that Hollywood liberals like Michael Moore traveled to Cuba to produce a documentary film about it but who now says that ObamaCare is not for him.
UPDATE: 3-12-2014. Glad to read that a prominent Republican finally admitted this.
In an exclusive phone interview on Tuesday afternoon, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) warned that Democrats in Congress appear to be angling to move toward a single payer healthcare type system as the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare continues to march on.
“Secretly and not so secretly, it’s a desire many on the left have had for a very long time,” Rubio said, noting that liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), chairman of a key Senate subcommittee, just held a hearing laying out the case for single payer Tuesday.
“I believe single payer is always the goal that they wanted. In fact, I think Obamacare was designed to eventually lead us to that point. What I think you’re going to see now is as Obamacare begins to fail, instead of recognizing it as a failure, we need to back and embrace free market principles. I think you’re going to find the left increasingly saying that Obamacare’s failure proves we need a single payer system, so I’m not surprised by it at all,” he added.
The horror stories of free healthcare in Great Britain can fill a book. The worst is the enormous wait times for treatment, the underpaid Doctors, the shoddy treatment, the untrained bureaucratic staff and the sick and neglected dying patients. That's not the story line from a B-movie, its a review published in the British newspaper The Telegraph. Read the stomach-turning details:
By Laura Donnelly, Health Correspondent
7:20AM GMT 06 Jan 2013
Hundreds of hospital patients died needlessly. In the wards, people lay starving, thirsty and in soiled bedclothes, buzzers droning hopelessly as their cries for help went ignored. Some received the wrong medication; some, none at all.
Over 139 days, the public inquiry into the Stafford hospital scandal has heard testimony from scores of witnesses about how an institution which was supposed to care for the most vulnerable instead became a place of danger.
Decisions about which patients to treat were left to receptionists, inexperienced junior doctors put in charge of critically-ill patients, and nurses switched off equipment because they did not know how to use it.
Desperate relatives told the inquiry, chaired by Robert Francis QC, how patients were left so dehydrated that some began drinking from flower vases.
By the time the hospital's failings were exposed by regulators, in 2009, up to 1,200 patients had died needlessly between 2005 and 2008.
It happened in simple terms because managers attempted to cut costs and meet Labour's central targets, so they could achieve the coveted "foundation status" for Mid Staffordshire NHS trust – enforcing 160 job cuts as they tried to succeed.
Now a public inquiry, which opened more than two years ago, is attempting to address fundamental two questions. How was it that the regulatory and supervisory systems which should protect all patients failed so catastrophically – and what is to stop it happening again?
Mr Francis and his team have heard from 290 witnesses, and considered more than one million pages of evidence, in an inquiry which has so far cost almost £13 million. Repeatedly, the evidence has led to one question – whether a "culture of fear" means that the demands of the NHS hierarchy take precedence over the most basic needs of patients.
The inquiry heard that at Stafford, NHS targets ruled supreme.
Orders were cascaded down the management hierarchy, from the executive board, to the operational managers, to the senior nurses and matrons; nurses and doctors who failed to meet them were threatened with the sack.
It led to junior nurses and doctors abandoning seriously-ill patients to treat minor cases who were in danger of breaching the four-hour Accident & Emergency (A&E) waiting time limit.
For the same reason, patients were often moved out of casualty soaked in urine or covered in faeces, because the target – to admit or discharge patients within four hours – was under threat.
Meanwhile, nurses were instructed by senior nurse colleagues to falsify waiting times, and to claim that patients had been seen more quickly than they were.
And a few months later an investigative commission revealed:

8:39AM GMT 16 Mar 2013At least 20,000 hospital deaths could have been prevented if warnings about high mortality rates had been acted on quickly, a government adviser has said.
So why are the Democrats so determined to push us into a similar system? The answer is twofold. Controlling healthcare means controlling lives and that equates to controlling people. Just as every dictator strives to disarm his subjects to prevent rebellion (but that leads to another lie spoken by Obama about his support for our 2nd Amendment Rights). It was never about just controlling healthcare. Secondly, Obama is obsessed with destroying America's greatness. His Communist leanings from the time he was mentored by the card-carrying CPUSA member Frank Marshal Davis to the affiliations he made with left-wing radicals at Occidental and Columbia and his friendship with Weather Underground founders and domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn seem inline with those earlier enemies from the Left.
People look at the performance record of Barack Hussein Obama and either laud over his liberal policies or condemn him for his failures. But what they miss is the fact that Obama has set out from the beginning to wreak havoc on everything great about America and instead of failing he has succeeded in everything he wanted to do. He has created a racial divide by ignoring black on white crime, even publicly sympathizing with the Florida thug Trayvon Martin who had the misfortune of attacking and trying to kill an armed community watchman. He has a Black Attorney General who had directed the Dept. of Justice to drop charges against the Black Panthers who were found guilty of intimidating white voters in Philadelphia. The same Attorney General who tried to blame gun crime in Mexico on gun sales he arranged in Arizona where the ATF purposely allowed licensed firearms dealers to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers. They called it Operation Fast and Furious. This operation was a failed attempt for more Gun Control laws.
Barack Hussein Obama has purged our Armed Forces of hundreds of high ranking officers thus weakening our military command and drastically cut the Defense Department budget. He has threatened court martial against Chaplains for preaching Christianity. He changed the Rules of Engagement placing our soldiers at high risk fighting radical Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan which greatly increased the casualty rate. He has alienated our allies and supported the Muslim Brotherhood, our sworn enemy and placed their members in high-ranking positions in his administration. He has committed scores of treasonous acts in violation of the Constitution by exercising legislative authority to write laws, change laws and refuse to enforce laws. And his attempts at changing our healthcare laws are aimed at wreaking 1/3 or our economy, the same economy he has virtually bankrupted by borrowing trillions of dollars of new debt.
Obama has not failed, he has done everything he set out to do. And if he gets his way he will suddenly act to take advantage of the pending healthcare disaster he created by offering a ready solution. Obama will be made to look like a hero just in time to advance the Democrats interests in the November elections and he will offer a much needed solution to those millions of Americans who will have suffered many months this year with health insurance they couldn't afford since ObamaCare went into effect on January 1st. Obama will admit the failure of his original plan and announce a substitute plan, a Single-payer National Health Care plan, a system in which the government, rather than private insurers, pays for all health care costs. Just like in Canada and the U.K. Paid for with higher taxes. The one he wanted all along.
