Skip to comments.Giuliani:Number One Priority was an ‘Ideological Commitment to Government Takeover of Medicine’

Former New York City mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani minced no words when it came to the Obama administration's massive health care overhaul. In an exclusive interview with CNBC's Maria Bartiromo, Giuliani stated that, plain and simple, it "was an ideological act by the Congress" liberal Democrats "are very happy about."
"Instead of privatizing - which is what our government should be doing - we're taking major roles of the economy for the United States government," Giuliani told "Closing Bell" anchor Bartiromo. "And it is not an exaggeration to say we are starting to look more like a European social democracy than we are an American free-market capitalist society."
A self-avowed free-market advocate, Bartiromo attempted to defend the Democrats' actions for a second: "Let me take devil's advocate for a minute here and say, Okay, you say socialism and we're seeing this government takeover. Well maybe some of this stuff wasn't working before, so how do we know this isn't going to work better?'" she posed.
Giuliani lamented how disingenuous Obama's entire argument about a health care "crisis" was, seeing as how much of the significant provisions do not go into effect for years - and quite possibly under the watch of a Republican president.

Because, now.....all of their healthcare would be free....paid for by the government!
That...is how the Dems secure votes. They rely on illiterate immigrants to keep them in power.
Yes, I’m with you there. He could win and he’d be in or corner more often than not.
So...................................Jack Squat lied about jobs being #1? Who would have thought..... =.=
