Our great president Ronald Reagan passed away in 2004, but he said something that still resonates today.
Reagan said: "One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.”
Boy does that resonate!
It sounds like President Reagan had the foresight to see the dangers of Obamacare.
Even more amazing is that Ronald Reagan spoke those words in 1961, before he ever ran for office.
But Reagan's comments are not surprising if you understand liberalism.
Creating a national health care system has been a major priority for the left wing for over 50 years!
Time and again the Congress and the American people have rejected socialized medicine.
Now Obama is pushing for a radical takeover of one-sixth of the U.S. economy.
But Obama is perhaps the most clever liberal ever.
He knows the American people would never go for a national system like they have in Britain or Canada.
So his plan calls for several steps for Obamacare to become a reality.
