Or, wanna play a round? (Geesh, can we just get real???)
"I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer health care plan, universal health care plan. That's what I'd like to see." Barack Obama, AFL-CIO Civil, Human, and Women's Rights Conference, 2003
"...but, I don't think we're going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There's going to be, potentially, some transition process. I can envision a decade out, or 15 years out, or 20 years out."- Barack Obama at the SEIU Health Care Forum, March 24, 2007, after stating his "commitment" was to have universal health care by the end of his 1st term as president.
"...let me also address an illegitimate concern that is being put forward by those who are claiming a public option is somehow a trojan horse for a single-payer system...." Barack Obama, at the American Medical Association (AMA) in June, 2009
Do you think that Obama is talking about the same single-payer, universal health care system he talked about "transitioning" to in 10 - 20 years, as recently as 2007, before the AMA, when he calls people's concerns about a single-payer system "illegitimate?"
Apparently, Representative Barney Frank took an "illegitimate" posture when he said:
"I think if we get a good public option it could lead to a single-payer and that's (a good public option) the best way to reach single-payer," on July 27, 2009 (you'll see the quote at the same link provided numerous times above).
...and, by the way, continuing on the issue of Health Care: Obama to Jane Sturm: Hey, take a pill:
"...outside the medical criteria for prolonging life for somebody who is elderly, is there any consideration that can be given for a certain spirit, a certain joy of living, quality of life or, is it just a medical cut off at a certain age?" -Jane Sturm's question to Obama, after setting it up with a personal story about her mother, who at the time of receiving a pace maker was a feisty 100 years old. She lived to, or lives today at 105 years of age, with a pace maker.
Obama: "...what we (the government) can do is make sure that at least some of the waste that exists in the system...at least we (the government) can let doctors know, and your Mom know that, you know what? Maybe this isn't going to help, maybe you're better off not having the surgery but taking the pain killer."
So, the question remains, whether you like the rhetoric used by some or not, do you want the decision about your health care and the health care of your parents and family members to be determined by you and your family or by the government?
