This video montage is that of various democrats and their allies discussing their support for a single-payer health care system.  Naked Emperor News brings together various clips from different periods, including a 2007 clip of then Senator Obama speaking to an SEIU Healthcare Forum:

“My commitment is to make sure that we have universal healthcare for all Americans by the end of my first term as President.”


He later said  in the same clip:

“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.”

In 2003, he told an AFL-CIO audience:

“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer health care plan.”

Barney Frank(D-Mass.) and Jan Schakowsky,(D-Il.) show their slips as well in this montage, where their support for a single payer system comes out along with a hope to put private insurance out of business.

Mr. Frank’s more recent video clip is shown where he says:

“I think that if we get a good public option, it could lead to single payer, and that’s the best way to reach single-payer.”

The lawmakers on the hill of a single-payer system must be well aware that it is likely to be such a low quality eventual failure, they will exempt themselves from it, as Congressman Waxman, (D-Calif.), recently announced.  Despite Mr. Obama’s objection proclaiming the “illegitimate concern by those who are claiming a public option is somehow a Trojan horse for a single-payer system,” the evidence says otherwise, and the hush-hush nature of the Democratic health care plan only makes Americans more suspicious.
