Ronald Reagan on government-run health care
Ronald Reagan provides a compelling argument against government managed health care (socialist health care), which is what the Obama Democrats want to impose on America. In this video, President Reagan describes how, even though the American people will always vote against a government-run (authoritarian) health care system, Members of Congress, seeking to enlarge their authority, will attempt to implement these policies incrementally. As Reagan states, the openly stated goal of many of these socialists in Congress is to first enact a very minimal program, and then seek to expand the program inch by inch every few years, to a point in which the program becomes a massive authoritarian program. That is exactly what we have seen over the years in health care: from the introduction of Medicare (meant for the elderly) and Medicaid (for the poor), and the State Children's Health Insurance program (meant for lower-middle class families with children), to the new program of providing a "government-run" health insurance program for "everyone," which essentially gets us to the stated goal of the Statist, which is to have an authoritarian, government-run health care system for everyone.
