ACORN founder-turned-pariah Wade Rathke explained in late July SEIUs and ACORNs involvement in the push for socialized medicine.
Who really wants a government takeover of health care? Labor unions and tax eaters. The question remains: if and when the Congress passes reform, will the American people understand who is really behind it?

I think that the main purpose of Health Care Reform (HCR) is to be a direct assault on individual liberties.
That means that health care providers have no individual rights. The collective right of the people to receive health care would supersede the provider's individual right to set their fees, their hours or change their occupational status or even decide how to apply their skills and knowledge. A collective right, by practical definition, is a state right because it is a right that is provided by the government to all not protected by the government as something possessed by each person. It is also a state right because it supersedes the individual rights of others when the two come into conflict.
It isn't stated in any of the bills that a patient's rights to care supersedes a provider's right to set fees and hours etc, but it doesn't need to. Rights are always adjudicated in the courts. The legislation simply establishes the foundation for the courts to rule in favor of the patient's collective right to health care.
Weiners view is collectivist, fascist and totalitarian. Collectivist because it is superior to an individual right. Fascist because it is overseen by one entity the Federal government. Totalitarian because the Federal government is the true possessor of this collective right and the administrator and enforcer of it as well.
Congressman Weiner's view is the underlying philosophy of the entire Health Care Reform legislation the House and Senate have put forth. Consider the setting up of community watch dogs to monitor various health parameters of citizens in the Senate version of the bill. Look at pages 382 - 393.
Even the citizens themselves will be subject to state set regulations on their behavior in order to fulfill the human right of universal health care. It isn't the individual's liberty that is being protected by that it is the state's control over its health care system that is being guarded. How much clearer can it be that these bills abrogate the concept of individual rights?

“We must organize unorganized Healthcare workers, extending to them the gains of unionism while securing control over the Healthcare industry.

Proof of the total destruction of our healthcare system.
In my opinion it makes them the single most dangerous (and deadly) union there is.
Imagine a system where the quality of care doled out is directly related to union and democrat party standing. They get top notch modern medical care in the best new hospitals. We get care of a veterinarian if we’re lucky in a filthy hospital while we lay on filth covered cots.
