Democrats’ New Message on Health Care:
Kill the Evil Insurance Companies
But Then How Do You “Keep Your Plan?”
Washington, DC – While the Democrats continue their infighting on health care reform, they’ve been fumbling around for someone to blame for their troubles . At last, it seems, they’ve settled on a target .
On Thursday, reporters pelted Pelosi with questions about an insurrection by liberal Democrats against a deal cut with Blue Dog Democrats that would significantly weaken the health care public option — and she responded with a withering attack on the insurance industry.
“They are the villains in this. They have been part of the problem in a major way.” (Politico, 7/31/09)
Uh oh. Hide your health insurance card. The Speaker’s on a rampage.
“It’s almost immoral what they are doing,” she said. “Of course, they’ve been immoral all along,”
Hmm, does this sound like a person who wants to make sure you can keep your personal, private health insurance? Of course not. Because, as Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) made abundantly clear recently, the Democrat health care plan is designed to destroy personal coverage, and create a government-run or single-payer system, in which your only option for health care is Washington.
“I think if we get a good public option, it could lead to single payer. And that’s the best way to get to single payer.”
Americans rightly seek changes to the current structure that will make insurance providers responsive to patients, but the Democrats’ plan won’t empower individuals to make their own medical decisions. It will merely insert the government as the permanent arbiter of health care decisions. As Democrats spread out across the country to demonize personal coverage, patients are left to ask, “Who then will provide my coverage under the Democrat vision of reform?” We’ll give you one guess.
