First, socialized medicine; next, free society ends

In a few days, health care will go the way of the national car insurance industry. By force of law, socialized medicine will become a nightmare, not just a reality. How is that for keeping campaign promises?

Obama promised us change, straight out of Friedrich Engels' slogan (Karl Marx’s buddy): “We must change the world.” 

Thanks to the guilt-ridden, the guileless, and the gullible, we will now be saddled with more, not less, costs to pay for health care plus all the liberal, hidden, abortion rights agendas like abortifients on demand and abortions at taxpayers expense, care which violates and restricts religious freedom. This from a so-called professor of constitutional law.

Oh yes, before I forget, common wisdom says that this legislative act was rammed through Congress overnight. Poor unsuspecting idiots. Not true. President Richard Nixon, in his book, "Beyond Peace," published in 1994, tried to warn us of the Clinton health reform: “If we go down that road, we will destroy not only our health care system but the underpinnings of our free society.” 

Remember Hillary and her much ballyhooed, robber-baron plan for reform of health care for our nation? Well, I've got news for you. Obamacare is Hillary-care. It’s Clinton leftovers warmed over and crammed down your throat. 

And if you have not had enough of Obama in 8 years, Hillary is waiting to claim her husband’s title of the comeback kid. Can’t believe ”the party of the people” is so stupid as to be talking about running her for president.
