Remember when health care reform was actually about health care reform?
Talk about incrementalism and a foot in the door. Iowa Senator referred to Obamacare as a “starter home,” not a mansion when trying to garner support for the government take over of health care.
Think of it as a starter home.
“What we are buying here is a modest home, not a mansion. What we are getting here is a starter home. It’s got a good foundation: 30 million Americans are covered.
Funny thing is Obamacare would started as a mega-mansion and then got scaled back to a starter home when so much there became so much opposition to the government take over of 1/6 of the US economy.
The fact of the matter is because so so compromise and pay offs were needed to get the necessary votes, the health care bill is nothing more than a piece of terrible legislation containing sweetheart deals.
Harkin’s comments regarding Obamacare being a starter home should frighten the hell out of every American. What does it mean? Democrats, Liberals and bout and paid for moderate Democrats look to gain even more control over your lives and the private insurance industry. Make no mistale about it, Democrats want a government run option and they eventutally want a “single payer health care system”.
“We may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we got to take back the Senate and we have to take back the House.” (Barack Hussein Obama)
There end goal is socialism.
