Pelosi: ObamaCare is the beginning of taking America “in a new direction”

I’ve said it before but it bears repeating: Their candor about O-Care being a starting, not an ending, point for “fixing” American health care is simply astounding. Given public angst about the on cost and effect on quality of care and conservative objections to the bill as an irreversible, transformational lurch towards statism, you would think Obama and Pelosi would be scrupulous about selling the bill — even privately within the caucus lest their comments leak out — as something self-contained and modest in scope. Instead we’ve seen The One winking at House progressives about a public option down the line and now Madam Speaker hinting at god knows what to come. If you want to reach for that brass ring of single-payer eventually, you have to start the socialist carousel turning. So cue the calliope:

Pelosi said passing the bill would allow Dems to undertake a “debate” with Republicans over “what is the balanced role that government should have.”

“We have to take it to the American people, to say, this is the choice that you have,” she said. “This is the vision that they have for your health and well being, and this is the vision that we have.”…

Pelosi also sought to reassure those unhappy with the Senate bill by stressing that future legislation would follow, suggesting that after they passed this legislation Dems might try to do away with the insurance industry’s antitrust exemption, among other unnamed initiatives.

“Kick open that door, and there will be other legislation to follow,” she said. “We’ll take the country in a new direction.”

As I recall, sadly, O-Rings took The Challenger in a new direction.

Why can’t the Communists in America just go to some Communist nation and “improve” that system? Why toss out our Constitutional form of government? Why?

“Kick open that door, and there will be other legislation to follow,” she said. “We’ll take the country in a new direction.”

The hard part about Nancy’s quote is that... I’d bet she’s not just thinking metaphorically. BHO has already gone on record wanting to create a civilian army as well funded as our own US Army. These folks minimally want a socialist state and don’t care how they get there.

We might as well get used to it. The fix is in and this Health Care Bill is probably going to pass. All those years of Republican Presidents and Republican Congresses failed to even shut off funding for PBS. Utter failure for all of us. We are just outnumbered by those who who think a free ride is the best thing going. I am feeling really bad about this, because from now on, the "health care" issue will rule the Governement and elections until finally only utter bankruptcy will be able to save us.

Europe lifestyle, here we come. Get ready for everything to be crowded, oversold, and crappy. Expensive tiny cars, expensive to operate and expensive public transportation or a bicycle for traveling around. Your meat will come in tiny packs and costs twice as much and you'll pay for the plastic shopping bags that you have to fill up yourself.

Obama is to the rebuilding of America as World War II was to the rebuilding of Europe.

I can understand that sentiment. Who said that these Democrats are entitled to overturn freedom and wreck America? Many of them actually think they are doing the right thing, but the ones at the top are pure evil.

How's that going to happen, when consumer purchases come nearly to a standstill. And there's not enough of a manufacturing base to tax for the trick of printing too much money and inflation to work.

Do some real work (gardening, animals, hobby of producing a necessity) and prepare for the default. It's going to happen.
