What They Said: Liberals Gladly Admit To Redistributionist Agenda After The FactMar 30, 2010
We wanted you to hear it for yourselves in case you haven't already, but over the last several days, the emboldened liberals have felt safe spilling the beans and being forthright. Finally, they're calling the government takeover of health care what it is: redistribution of income and wealth; control over individuals and companies; and even outright socialism. It started last week whenU.S. Representative John Dingell (D-Mich.), the most senior member of the House, told a radio show the bill was about "control" of "the people" (see previous post here). It's refreshing that they are so honest now, but we wish they would have been so during their town hall meetings last summer and throughout the entire debate and process on the bill. Instead, they acted undecided about it, flat out said the opposite of what's being said now — or hid. It reveals their disingenuousness.
Still, this wasn't without proper warning. There certainly were glimpses and peeps about their intentions in 2008 (see below). But, just so you will see and hear it for yourselves, as seeing is believing, here is a sample of recent frank admissions by prominent liberals: We start with U.S. Senator Max Baucus (D-Mont.), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee; former Democrat National Committee Chairman Howard Dean; Al Sharpton; Vice President Joe Biden; and, we cap it off with a classic by the head man himself.
All are only seconds long, except the Dean interview which is about three minutes. It's instructive and worth it to hear all of them as well as the Dingell interview, especially for people who still think the takeover was altruistic. But, just for good measure, here's a recent endorsement of the health care takeover by Fidel Castro. Nice. Hard to keep your cover when he's exposing you (David Horowitz's NewsRealBlog.com).
Senator Baucus: make no mistake about it — this IS "income redistribution."
Howard Dean: He admits it's all about confiscation and redistribution, and only the governing elites decide what the "right balance" is; and the U.S. is way "out of balance."
Al Sharpton: We're all socialists now because socialism is what we voted for.
The Veep: Dingell is only part right. We're controlling the insurance companies, too! (Why not, government controls the banks, GM, AIG, . . . .)
The Redistributor-In-Chief where it all started: Let's "spread the wealth around!"
