Health care: really about income redistribution!

Now that the health care bill is a done deal, one of its primary movers and shakers, Democrat Max Baucus, explains what the agenda was really all about. It was not about health care. It was about income redistribution!

"Income redistribution" is just Communist-speak for theft. The commandment does not say, "Thou shalt not steal from the poor" (as if it was OK to steal from the rich)!

Hugh Hewitt comments: "Baucus' candor is appreciated, though the fact that he waited until the bill passed to announce the real agenda behind the massive tax hikes isn't a profile in courage. And the seniors on fixed income who are about to lose Medicare Advantage would laugh at Baucus' pseudo-populism."

Who are these rich who have gotten too rich... will Bill Gates and Warren Buffet going to fund everything? No! Tell us who will be taxed to pay for your power. I bet the threshold for who pays is a lot lower than Baucus implies... I bet the companies they target just pass the buck right along to consumers.

Baucus point of salaries not keeping pace... is that true?! Why is that?! Perhaps... there is greater international competition, meaning salaries may level off, perhaps this economic disaster created by the government is to blame, perhaps the increased cost of healthcare due to excessive litigation and regulation is to blame.

Perhaps the problem is with the disaster of an education system we have... thank you government. Perhaps the problem is that individuals are handed more and more and not faced with a real need to better themselves... perhaps those dependent on the government serve the government's purpose. Perhaps the problem is with communities, and towns, and cities who always have someone else to blame instead of taking responsibility for improving themselves. Perhaps the government that preys on these people offering them bogus solutions and stirring them up against their neighbors in exchange for their freedoms is to blame.
