More on the Democrats' health care intentions

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) was on Joe Scarborough's MSNBC show yesterday, and give him this much - unlike Barack Obama, he's an honest supporter of a big government takeover of the health care system:

Scarborough: Again… I’m astounded by your question. It sounds like you’re suggesting that there’s no need to have a country that’s run on free market principles.

Weiner: Time out. Let’s focus on one thing at a time. This isn’t a commodity, Joe. Health care isn’t a commodity.

Scarborough: You’re saying that health care is different than everything else.

Weiner: Health care is not a commodity.

Scarborough: But you are making the conservatives’ point. You are making the point of the people at the town hall meetings who say this is Barack Obama’s opportunity to get rid of private health care and turn it completely over to the government. I’m sitting here stunned, saying Oh My God, you’re making the point of the health care protesters.

Weiner: If Barack Obama doesn’t want to do it, I want to do it.

If you want the government to run the health care system, vote for any of the plans that come out of the Democrats in the Congress. If you don't, you need to fight every step of the way. They have lied, are lying, and will continue to lie about their overall intentions. They've complained that "government takeover" is a dishonest label of their current proposals, but the fact is, it's an accurate label of what they'd like to do, and there really isn't any question about it.
