In just about seven weeks, people will be able to start buying Obamacare-approved insurance plans through the new health care exchanges.
But already, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is predicting those plans, and the whole system of distributing them, will eventually be moot.
Reid said he thinks the country has to “work our way past” insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS’ program “Nevada Week in Review.”
“What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” Reid said.
When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”The idea of introducing a single-payer national health care system to the United States, or even just a public option, sent lawmakers into a tizzy back in 2009, when Reid was negotiating the health care bill.
Of course, we in the conservative new media warned you all of this back in 2009, especially when Linda Douglass at the White House wanted Americans to snitch on their neighbors who were telling the truth about Obama's socialist healthcare grab.
We also have the videos of candidate Obama to prove how he is a proponent of "single-payer universal healthcare" and talked about "transitioning" from the coverage we had at one time to a single-payer system (see below).
But since we have a "mainstream media" who act like lapdogs instead of watchdogs, and partisans who can be bought like a cheap trick on the street just to help the party, this risky scheme was shoved down the throat of America.
Now we're paying the price for it.
