Well, There It Is: It’s All About Control (Update: Statist Health Care and Car-Buying)

Filed under: Economy,Health Care,Life-Based News,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 11:43 am

Of course, it’s about “control(ling) the people.” Anyone who has studied and followed the far left has known this for decades.

But John Dingell just said so. Anyone who hears this clip can no longer claim ignorance.

Answering a brilliant left-imitating rhetorical question from Paul W. Smith (more info here) at Detroit’s WJR, Dingell explains why many ObamaCare items don’t take effect until 2014 (HTs to Michelle Malkin and Hot Air):

Partial Transcript:

Paul W. Smith: Are we readly to let 72,000 more people die in our country, if 18,000 died, or whatever the number is, a figure that anyone comes up with, per year because of a lack of health insurance or health care, when this bill doesn’t basically take effect until 2014?

John Dingell: Paul W, we’re not ready to be doing it. But let me remind you that 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 [million] 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.

The rest of what Dingell says has to do with the GOP’s supposed lack of alternatives. Horse manure.

UPDATE: Especially since Mr. Dingell is from Michigan, here’s a question — How can anyone with a freedom-loving conscience conceivably defend buying a new car from General Motors or Chrysler? It’s one thing to bit the hand that feeds you; it’s quite another to effectively feed the hand that has said that it will control you — and in fact has said that the only thing stopping it from controlling you right now is the administrative difficulty of making that control airtight.

  1. That one statement says it all! I guess he doesn’t have to be shy any longer, just get it out there. Thanks for the alert.

  4. [...] Well, since we’re on a “no major problem” track with party uber alles, party hearty on this: Every one of the 219 Democrats who will more than likely (barring a sudden appearance of conscience and statesmanship) vote to re-affirm their Sunday vote before this week is out will be confirming John Dingell’s statement to Paul W. Smith that this isn’t about health care, it’s all about control. [...]

  5. When will people start believing us? These ultraleftists don’t care about people or health care except as means to an end.

  6. Hey, there’s this gem from Jesse Jackson, Jr.:

    “Let me be clear: There’s probably going to have to be a significant reform of other social programs as the Federal Government assumes more responsibility for health care for the nation’s people, there are other social programs that are probably going to undermine some elements of social cohesion, there’s no doubt about that.”

    That’s clear, all right!
