Democrats are more determined than ever to push through the federal takeover of health care. Citizens have faxed, e-mailed, and phoned their elected representative; attended tea parties, townhall meetings, protested on DC, met with Members of Congress, voted heavily for Republican Governors of NJ and Virginia in November, and yet, Democrats in Congress are even more determined to press forward with health care fascism and socialism.
Democrats do not believe that citizens should be able to exchange their wealth for a doctor's services. Instead, Democrats want to confiscate the wealth of citizens, transfer it to a bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., and control the doctor by imposing regulations, taxes, and mandates on what they are able to do in their day to day practice.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "has reportedly told fellow Democrats that she's prepared to lose seats in 2010 if that's what it takes to pass ObamaCare," according to OpinionJournal.com, part of the Wall Street Journal. If health care 'reform' (which we'll call destruction) is so great, then why would a majority party do something that it knows will result in losing a large number of seats in the federal legislature? It is not because the people want it. They don't. It is not because they want to do what is good for the people. All of the evidence from around the world suggests that such legislation will result in higher costs, the denial of care, and lower quality health services.
The only plausible answer that one can arrive at is that the Democrats are trying to impose socialist health care because they believe that it is the best way to turn the country into a socialist, third-world country.
