I hestitate to agree with people who shout "Teddy Roosevelt was a [communist] Prog!" One of the people shouting that loudest has been Obozo, trying to use a Rushmore Republican President to "endorse" posthumously his Sovietcare scheme.
In fact, Roosevelt never even came close to endorsing Communist medicine. The plank the Obamaliars point to in the 1912 Progressive Party platform refers to what nowadays is called "key man" insurance, or "short-term disability", and would have been a private insurance arrangement paid for privately by industrial employers (only -- not everyone), to help deal with serious, crippling mill and plant workplace injuries.
Obama lied. As usual. Repeatedly, again as usual.
“...Obama lied. As usual. Repeatedly, again as usual....”
Well, I think many of us have discovered that if his lips are moving, our messianic transparent King Pinocchio is lying. Unless it’s some minor tidbit that will further his grand illusion of a totally communist utopia named the USSA. ...with him playing the role of Hugo, of course.
