America, You Asked For It!

Single-payer is the goal, no matter what they say

They’re lying through their teeth when they say their goal isn’t a single-payer system like Canada’s and Great Britain’s!

Their goal is to eliminate the private health insurance market. Not for the good of the people, but to control the people.

Don’t believe it?  Watch what they were saying not so long ago.

Ask yourself this question, where are the most economically depressed areas in the country? The major metropolitan areas that have been run by left wing liberals for decades have the highest crime rates and the highest poverty rates of anywhere in the country. All the promises liberals have made to these constituencies have never come to fruition!

Why on Earth would you believe their pie-in-the-sky promises on health care?

They took over Amtrak and said it would be profitable again within 3 years. Almost 40 years later, it’s still billions in the red.

The post office loses billions every year.

The VA health care system attempts to steer vets to throw in the towel and decide life isn’t worth living. This government-run health care system is well known for the substandard care it provides.

According to Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), approximately 1/3 of all the files in the custody of the government are lost.

Again I ask, is this who you want tasked with “fixing” the health care system. Do you trust these same bureaucrats to keep costs down?

I don’t.

And I certainly don’t believe their lies, because they’ve wanted a single payer system for a long time!

  3. Just to be clear, Amtrak was not nationalized. While it is, legally, a private firm, its stock is held by the Federal government. It was created as a repository for the assets contributed by the private railroads when they were relieved of their obligation to operate passenger service. This is explained in more detail here, if you wish to read up on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amtrak

    • “While it is, legally, a private firm, its stock is held by the Federal government.

      Just what does it take to be considered nationalized? Its stock is held by the Federal gov’t! That’s a nationalized company. They claimed it would be back in private hands, and profitable, within 3 years. It’s not.

  4. As I said above, it was created to be owned by the Federal government. It had no existence as a truly private firm before this time. To be nationalized, a firm would need to have been created and then operate as a private entity for some period of time prior to nationalization. Amtrak was always conceived of as a government entity. Nixon may have suggested three years to profitability, but no one in his administration seems to have believed that. I do not wish to be pedantic, but all of the comparison of GM and Amtrak, for example, miss the point that Amtrak never operated truly privately.
