The installation of the ACA amounts to a declaration of eminent domain over the private sector practice of medicine and transfers the controlling interest of that profession over to the government. From the conception of the Obamacare scheme to its implementation, that was the plan all along. The only unplanned occurrence in the process of nationalizing the medical profession was the collapse of the machinery – three years and six-hundred million dollars in the making – that failed upon ignition. The machine took off from the drawing board at the speed of a clunker – losing parts as it limped forward and then shut down. The debacle made it appear as though the devil in the details had arisen to plague the rollout of Obamacare with a pox of “glitches.”
Obamacare is not the final stage of the Affordable Care Act. It is preamble to the more sinister “single payer” system – the lynch-pin that, if put in place, will lock the doctor into a system of compulsory servitude. When government becomes the single payer of society’s medical bills, it becomes the single employer and the single source of a doctor’s income. This means that every doctor in the medical profession is subject to the non-negotiable authority of absolute power. The single payer system will deliver the practice of medicine in America to where the British already are. It’s a very scary place – for doctors and patients alike.
The “free” health care system of socialist Britain is not just a failure; it is a “catastrophic” failure. In four years, from 2005 to 2009, “hundreds of patients died unnecessarily” in the Stafford Hospital in central England. To change the unidentified behavior blamed for the disaster, Jeremy Hunt – Britain’s counterpart to Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius – said that the government is passing a myriad of legal liabilities that will effect a “profound transformation” in the culture of the British medical profession. Mr. Hunt has not bothered, and no doubt will not bother, to wonder if the existing laws of the single payer medical system may have any causal connection to the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of British patients. The doctor’s union – The British Medical Association – warned the government that intimidating doctors with threats of criminal prosecution would “worsen the culture of fear amongst medical professionals that [already] prevents people from speaking up.”
By way of the Affordable Care Act, this administration is leading our nation down the road of Britain’s crumbling single payer medical system. The American people, however, having seen with their own eyes and having heard with their own ears, the brazen, in-your-face deception of which President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are capable, are no longer willing to follow their marching orders in lock-step. Enlightened now by the evidence of their own experience, they have lowered the credibility rating of the Democrat leadership to “untrustworthy.”
The millions who lost their doctors, their health care plan and their trust in President Obama and big government, are willing now to give the Republican’s arguments for “limited government” a listening. We can win this debate and reverse the political madness of the last five years, come 2014 and 2016. The facts are “aligned.”
