President Confirms: On Path to Socialism

A news story came out stating what many knew about what Joe Wilson said; he was right. Government issued health care as proposed by Obama and the congressional democrats would allow for illegals to participate in the system.
Today, for the first time as far as we know, the administration is backing a provision that would require proof of citizenship before someone could enroll in a plan selected on the exchange.
Congressman Joe Wilson was right. Congratulations Joe. If you feel like it, drop him a congratulatory gift.

MSNBC tries to white wash the president's error by saying "[Well, any provision barring illegals would not really be enforceable as a practical matter anyway.]" MSNBC, then why have any laws? They are all broken at some point anyway. But the White House's admission is the smaller part of the story.

When this video came out, the White House and its allies denounced it as wrong and taking things out of context. Obama has no intention of moving America off of private health care insurance.

The White House release this today:
Undocumented immigrants would be able to buy insurance in the non-exchange private market, just as they do today. That market will shrink as the exchange takes hold, but it will still exist and will be subject to reforms such as the bans on pre-existing conditions and caps.

The private market is going to shrink because the U.S. government is going to put them out of business. The U.S. government is actively working to put American companies out of business. Something here doesn't pass the smell test. For all his flowerly language and smooth talking isn't changing the fact he is taking a wrecking ball to the health care market. You can put a lipstick on a pig, and it's still a pig.

The president and congressional democrats have said health care coverage will be mandated like car insurance. (We will ignore the fact automobile insurance is not mandatory. Many people do without because they rely on other forms of transportation or family members to get them around.) Mandated? Again, I would like to ask the same questions the anti-pro-lifers use:
  1. How are you going to enforce it?
  2. What if I don't pay the fines?
  3. Is the government going to start locking people up? Are they really criminals?
  4. Will they be denied health care if they don't have their papers and left to die on the streets?
  5. Will "back alley" insurance companies be setup to satisfy federal requirements?
President Obama is not a socialist. He is a statist whose policies have the eventual goal being socialism.
