Letting the mask slip Pt. I

As Nancy Pelosi suggested, once we pass the bill, we will be able to see what's in it. Additionally, we will be able to see and here the motives and the rationales of the people who have been pushing ObamaCare.

Here's John Dingell (D-MI) on the radio yesterday explaining why it is that it will take so long (starting in 2014) for the actual ObamaCare goodies to start kicking in (taxes to fund it start immediately, of course).

As a set up, the radio host, Paul W. Smith of WJR, questions the assertion by the Democrats that approximately 40,000-45,000 people a year die because they don't have health insurance so it would stand by our reasoning that ObamaCare is actually letting 160,000-180,000 people die.

Dingell counters that it's just a matter of time and administrative socialization in order to dull the public's senses to the point they will submit to an authoritarian nanny-state.

Let me remind you this has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

Along with Alcee Hastings, "were making the rules up as we go along", these clips are providing some nice insights to the command and control nature of the statist mindset.

Thanks for keeping up the good fight to you, Bdaddy and associated bloggers and commenters

" control the people"??? I think he left something out but it was there by innuendo - "to control the people's health care and thus control the people." Seems like the dems are digging themselves deeper and deeper holes. I hope so. And repubs need to take note!
