NY Times Reports: The Obama Administration Doesn’t Want You to Call ObamaCare “Redistribution” … Even Though It Is And They Know(Knew) It

 

What’s in a word, except everything.

The New York Times is reporting that Barack Obama and his administration does not want you to call Obamacare the “R” word. Not racism, but “REDISTRIBUTION”. Just as Barack Obama and Democrats have suddenly distanced themselves from calling Obama’s signature piece of legislation Obamacare as it has become toxic. They also do not want you to call Obamacare a redistribution of wealth, when it obviously is. America, how else do you think that so many millions of uninsured poor people were going to miraculously get insurance, from the healthcare fairy?  The fact of the matter is, that they knew it all along and demonized Republicans when they stated the truth. Now suddenly millions of Americans don’t like it when the redistribution of wealth, the money grab is not just from the rich, but from the middle class as well. We said a long time ago, be very careful what Obama and his band of socialist define as rich, it might just be you.

Redistribution

Rebecca M. Blank was a top candidate in 2011 to lead President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, but then the White House turned up something politically dangerous.

“A commitment to economic justice necessarily implies a commitment to the redistribution of economic resources, so that the poor and the dispossessed are more fully included in the economic system,” Ms. Blank, a noted poverty researcher, wrote in 1992. With advisers wary of airing those views in a nomination fight, Mr. Obama passed over Ms. Blank, then a top Commerce Department official and now the chancellor of the University of Wisconsin. Instead he chose Alan Krueger, a Princeton economist.

“Redistribution is a loaded word that conjures up all sorts of unfairness in people’s minds,” said William M. Daley, who was Mr. Obama’s chief of staff at the time. Republicans wield it “as a hammer” against Democrats, he said, adding, “It’s a word that, in the political world, you just don’t use.”

These days the word is particularly toxic at the White House, where it has been hidden away to make the Affordable Care Act more palatable to the public and less a target for Republicans, who have long accused Democrats of seeking “socialized medicine.” But the redistribution of wealth has always been a central feature of the law and lies at the heart of the insurance market disruptions driving political attacks this fall.

“Americans want a fair and fixed insurance market,” said Jonathan Gruber, a health economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who advised Mr. Obama’s team as it designed the law. “You cannot have that without some redistribution away from a small number of people.”

The National Review On-line has 8 takeaways from the NYT article, here are a few:

  • The White House intentionally hid Obamacare’s redistributive goals.
  • Policy experts knew all along but didn’t tell the public.
  • David Axelrod blames American political culture for Obama’s needing to lie in the first place
  • Republican charges Obama feels must be deflected by disguising the truth: redistribution, socialized medicine, redistributor-in-chief, spreading the wealth around, closet socialist. (Read the rest of the takeaways HERE)

Make no mistake about it America, Barack Obama and Democrats lied to you and it was most certainly intentional. Their entire model of Obamacare is based on the redistribution of wealth and bringing others up while taking you down. That’s what socialists deem fair.

      It’s not so bad after all. A family scrapes it’s earnings together
      and buys itself a healthcare plan they want. Next they buy another
      identical plan that they cannot afford and hand it over to the
      ‘Government’ to Redistribute to the family of choice that does
      not have to pay. Really easy, no?

      The good side is that the recipients of your donated plan will
      become dedicated voters for the particular ‘Government’ that
      was kind enough to give them the free plan.

      Sweet and Wonderful!

      Barry and his socialist thugs were all prepared to fool the public about his programs. The Democrat/Socialist party knew the whole program and of course did all the things necessary to bring it about. The changing of words or changing their use is a typical Socialist device to mislead the people.

      The fact that there has never been a budget approved during the time he has been in office allows the Socialists to redirect funds to what programs they choose.

      If John McCain had allowed Sara Palin to attack Obama during the 2008 campaign, we would not be in this mess.
