Barack Obama has really shown his true colors, as the Socialist he actually is with the passage of the health care reform bill.
A complete power grab a taking over of 1/6th of the American economy and a complete disgrace, not only because it is the absolute wrong thing to do, not only because it was opposed by the majority of the population, but also unconstitutional. There is absolutely nowhere in the constiution where our founding fathers outlined healthcare as a basic right and in fact, this kind of socialized health care has failed time and time again.
The government health care programs that now exist, Medicare and Medicaid are abject and utter failures. They never should have been passed into law and if Republicans had some real backbone they would work to privatise these programs, along with Social Security. Due to the massive amount of waste, these three programs alone take up over 50% of the United States budget. It is obvious adding another program will only hurt our country.
So the question is, why did the Democrats support this bill and overrule the will of the people. Was it because they are dedicated Socialists? Was it because they want to destroy the country? Is it both?
