Moderate what? Obama is no moderate. He ran as a moderate but his policies have gone more and more left.
You have no apparent understanding of the left. Look at the Green Party as an example. They are HIGHLY critical of Obama and the Affordable Care Act, by the way. The left (generally) wanted a single payer system.
As does Obama. The entire thing is set up to fail and force the country to single payer. Reid has already come out and admitted that. And let's not even start about pulling power from Congress and shifting it to EPA, HHS, IRS, etc.
Maybe Obama does want a single-payer plan. He compromised and implemented a MODERATE market-plan. Intending it to fail is conspiracy theory rubbish I won't waste my time on. As for shifting power, if true, it has nothing to do with the left.
Why would Harry Reid start a conspiracy theory about the Democrats & the President? Get a grip. The man came out and said it bold as brass.
About how they wanted single payer, how he knows the law won't work forever, step 2 single payer, 3:30 http://youtu.be/SXgSKwYMnWo
Believing a program to be a step along the way does not mean it is "set up to fail and force the country to single payer." Incremental changes is pretty much how things work. Of course he's looking ahead. that's what politicians do.
I gave u the nice interview with the nice liberal. there are others out there as well where he says it is a step to removing health insurance completely. Keep downing that kool-aid though.
It's no secret that some see it as a step towards a certain end. That still is nothing like intending something to fail as a way to force in outcome. If you see no difference in those two things than, I'm sorry, but you are dumb.
you want to get to point d. you can't use a straight line. It's a steip toward he said. you take steps to get where you initially want to go. if u think it isn't set up to push the county into single payer than u are worse than dumb. you are naive.
If the country decides in the future to take another step to a single-payer system, than that would simply be democracy. Your implying a level of deviousness that just isn't here.
junkseller: and there in lies the rub, this is not a democracy, it is a republic.
There are many that treat the US as a democracy, in fact it gave the Democrats their name. This is a republic, which gave the Republican party its name. Government 101.
Very well: "If the country decides in the future to take another step to a single-payer system, than that would simply be republicanism." Not sure how that would alter my point of denouncing SS's allegation that this is some sort of devious plan.
