Kamikaze Attack on Our Healthcare System Is Still On

In case anyone was under the misperception that Hopey Change has anything whatsoever to do with the consent of the governed, the moonbats controlling Washington are still trying to ram through ObamaCare, despite massive public resistance:

A mere three days before President Obama’s supposedly bipartisan health-care summit, the White House yesterday released a new blueprint that Democrats say they will ram through Congress with or without Republican support. So after election defeats in Virginia, New Jersey and even Massachusetts, and amid overwhelming public opposition, Democrats have decided to give the voters what they don’t want anyway.

Ah, the glory of “progressive” governance and democratic consent.

“The President’s Proposal,” as the 11-page White House document is headlined, is in one sense a notable achievement: It manages to take the worst of both the House and Senate bills and combine them into something more destructive. It includes more taxes, more subsidies and even less cost control than the Senate bill. And it purports to fix the special-interest favors in the Senate bill not by eliminating them — but by expanding them to everyone.

How could we possibly afford that with the economy already staggering under the burden of government debt? We can’t, as Democrats well know.

Some explain the Dems’ unconscionably irresponsible behavior as intergenerational theft, assuming our children and grandchildren will pick up the bill. Others refer to the Cloward-Piven strategy, the objective of which is to enable a great leap forward into coercive collectivism by causing our system to collapse under the weight of entitlement spending. Given Comrade Obama’s radical background, the latter explanation is probably more accurate.

The reason Dems are willing to vote themselves out of office over healthcare is that once socialized medicine has been passed, it cannot be repealed. If ObamaCare is rammed through, America will never recover from it, just as it never recovered from the disastrous programs imposed by FDR, which continue to bleed us toward eventual bankruptcy to this day.

The difference is, the crop of socialists now in the White House don’t have the patience to wait for America to bleed to death gradually. That’s why Obama et al. are slashing open arteries left and farther left to make the red ink flow. Once it becomes clear that the debt can never be repaid, our currency collapses, and our savings become worthless, our helplessness will clear the path for Fundamental Change.
