I Was Way Ahead of Strassel & Steyn

Quoting Kim Strassel:
“Barack Obama emerged from his meeting with Senate Democrats this week to claim Congress was on the ‘precipice’ of something historic. Believe him. The president is demanding his party unilaterally enact one of the most unpopular and complex pieces of social legislation in history. In the process, he may be sacrificing Democrats' chances at creating a sustainable majority.

Slowly, slowly, the Democratic health agenda is turning into a political suicide pact…

So why the stubborn insistence on passing health reform? Think big. The liberal wing of the party—the Barney Franks, the David Obeys—are focused beyond November 2010, to the long-term political prize. They want a health-care program that inevitably leads to a value-added tax and a permanent welfare state. Big government then becomes fact, and another Ronald Reagan becomes impossible. See Continental Europe.”

Kim & Mark are correct in their analysis. But, I was way ahead of both of them.

On June 18, 2009 -- in my first post on this topic -- I said:
“America’s so-called ‘Progressives’ most often point to Canada’s single payer government monopoly as a model for what they would like to perpetrate on Americans. After the abject failure of HillaryCare, the Dims adopted a strategy of getting to HillaryCare incrementally -- by ‘boiling the frog slowly’, if you will.

No matter what the nature of the legislation that gets passed, know that it will be just one more step toward their end game -- a total government monopoly over health care.”
Even if -- by some miracle -- the current version fails, something will get passed and it will take us one giant step closer to the devastating single payer system which THEY ADMIT they’re gunning for. Ronald Reagan warned us about this in 1961.

I said it first, but -- on August 1, 2009 -- Steyn said it more eloquently and more comprehensively.
