Obama Speaks: Elimination of Private Healthcare IS the Plan

Obama's own words could not be more clear, "I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal healthcare plan." However, "I don't think we'll be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There's going to be, potentially, some transition process..." of 10-20 years.

Received this email in my inbox this morning from Bill Clinton and the DCCC (CCCP?),

It seems like the 1993 health care debate all over again. Back then, I led the charge for comprehensive health insurance reform. I fought tooth and nail to get it done, keenly aware that millions of Americans were living in fear that a serious illness or injury could spell economic disaster for their families. Americans needed health care reform then and we urgently need it now.

But, just as I did in 1993, President Obama has run into a buzz saw of special interest opposition to his top domestic policy priority -- health care reform. He is facing off against some of the most powerful special interests in Washington who've launched a furious campaign to preserve the status quo.
Billary Health Care was being touted as the only plan to save Americans from being thrown out of hospitals and physician offices. Sixteen years later, we still have the best health care system in the world, no one is denied health care, and we have survived just fine without socialized medicine. I think we can survive very well for another decade, or 15 years, or 20 years without Obamacare.
