…remember the Democrats’ original rationale for their national health care takeover scheme? They wanted all uninsured Americans to be covered, right? Remember? But now they concede that their mega-upheaval of a plan would still leave about 15 million without medical insurance. Yet they still advocate the plan! Why?

First, a digression: Don’t believe that “47 million uninsured” number. That canard is beyond a hoax. It is a fraud and a lie. For example, it includes at least 10 million illegal aliens (yes, that is the right term for those who enter our country by violating American law) and another five million or so legal foreign residents. Those categories are not “uninsured Americans” because they are not Americans. The notorious 47M also includes millions of wealthy people who do not purchase medical insurance—rendering themselves self-insured, not uninsured. The biggest deceptions of all may be counting a large cohort of the young and vigorous who make the rational cost/benefit decision not to buy medical insurance yet, and several million others who qualify for free insurance and just don’t bother to sign up! Bottom line, subtract out the un-uninsured and other inapplicable categories and the true number of Americans without health insurance is somewhere around seven million, maybe ten conservatively (compared with 15 million after Democrat “reform”?). Google the issue for about ten minutes to verify.

Another way the Democrats inadvertently reveal their own national health insurance dishonesty is through infidelity to a second objective, cost control. Remember that one? They are hoping you don’t, especially since the Congressional Budget Office has reported that the Obama-Democrat scheme would add $1 trillion to the national health tab over the next decade. Yet the Dems still want their plan. Why?…

…Have you noticed how the Washington Democrats like to take control of things, particularly big things in the economy such as the major banks and the auto industry, as well as health care? (Barack Obama has realized that he doesn’t have to literally own the banks to control them. He can, instead, achiev e control through bank dependence on TARP money and through his own coercion and intimidation. Step out of line, that is, and a bank will be publicly vilified by Barney Frank and other operatives, and maybe even have its executives prosecuted.) When American business, American jobs, and the American people become totally dependent on Barack Obama and the Democrats for money and credit, including student loans for good measure, how much power will that give the Obama Democrats over our country? The portrait coming into focus is one of either totalitarian socialism or an unholy socialist hybrid with fascism.

And when you are dependent on the decision of a Democrat bureaucrat for crucial medical treatment, how much power does that give the Democrats over you? …
