  Universal healthcare for all Americans his stated goal

“My commitment is to make sure that we’ve got universal healthcare for all Americans by the end of my first term as President.”

     Candidate Obama, SEIU health forum 2007

If the House passes the Senate healthcare bill tomorrow, it will be seen merely as a stepping stone to further reforms, including the public option, which has always been and always will be part of achieving universal healthcare, i.e., total federal takeover of the American healthcare system, fully 1/6th of the the U.S. economy.

“The only way we can get single-payer (universal care) is to have a public option,”  Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass.  “I’m a co-sponsor of it.”

Mitt Romney said Thursday Democrats will  pass the Senate version in the House and repeal efforts are already underway, even as 38 govenors prepare to sue to stop healthcare reform from being implemented.

If the federal government eventually achieves single-payer, universal care, complete government control of a socialized system, with that kind of power over people’s lives, government can do almost anything.

Here, Ronald Reagan, private citizen in 1961, explains the dangers of socialized medicine.
