from the article…Obama’s goal was never an individual mandate. He, like all leftists worldwide, knows that health care is the most powerful means of achieving direct, all-encompassing control over a population. Socialized medicine — i.e., the “single payer” method, ends individual liberty. It declares the government the owner of your body, and thereby overrides the right to life. And it will be much more difficult to fight legally, because, unlike the individual mandate, the Supreme Court precedent of Social Security will be there to undergird the government’s case. Socialized medicine must be stopped at the legislative level — i.e., in the U.S. Congress.
Will the next Congress have the will, or the numbers, to stop it? Let’s hope and pray that we never have to find out.
