The White House made some headlines yesterday when it responded to a headline on the Drudge Report that linked to a 2003 video of Barack Obama singing the praises of single-payer (read: socialized) health care.
The White House’s three-minute response to the 50-second clip claims that “the people who always try to scare people” are at it again.
Uh huh. And up is actually down, grass is purple, the stimulus package is working wonderfully and your doctor wants to take your tonsils and sell them for profit.
If only that one clip that Drudge linked to was the only example out there. But it’s not.
Let’s just take a look at a few of the administration officials and members of Congress (some very recently) explaining that the “public option” is another brick on the path toward single-payer, socialized medicine.
Barney Frank, July 27, 2009:
Rahm Emanuel, June 17, 2009: ‘The objective is what’s important, it’s not the means.’
Russ Feingold, May 5, 2009:
Jan Schakowsky, April 18, 2009:
Kathleen Sebelius, 2007:

And this is just a case of “the people who always try to scare people whenever you try to bring them health-insurance reform” rearing their ugly heads again.
