Universal healthcare for all Americans his stated goal
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.
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.
