If I accurately remember some of the campaign rhetoric of 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama claimed that he was going to go “line by line” in addressing the waste in the federal budget, and that he was going to use a “scalpel rather than a sledgehammer” in his attempts to bring our fiscal concerns under control.
Funny — in a macabre way, going “line by line” in the health care bill seems to be quite ironic, especially where scalpels are concerned. Maybe he was trying to tell us something.
So, here it is in the video above: an easily-digestible and fairly well-presented collection of details that begins the undressing of the Crown Jewel of Socialism. Of the many things that we’ve learned about the American radical Left during the past several years, one is simply this, something of which Saul Alinsky would have been really proud: nearly every one of the Left’s goals is always clearly stated to the American people. It’s just that they always express their goals by telling you the exact opposite of what it is that they intend to do.
The universal “healthcare” bill is the most glaring example. It has little to do with taking care of people. It’s actually much more of a death sentence, especially when it comes to seniors. Think “Cash For Clunkers II.” Should any “true believers” doubt the information that is presented in this brief video, feel free to fact-check it against the bill itself. Be sure, however, to remember Yoda’s words toward the end of Episode III: “If into the security recordings you go, only pain will you find.”
