In an interview with CNN Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was grilled on the disaster that is the Obamacare website. Sebelius was asked if she had signed up for Obamacare and she said, “I haven’t tried to sign up for Obamacare, because I already have insurance”.
Of course Secretary Sebelius isn’t going to voluntarily give up her superior healthcare coverage and enroll in Obamacare. She knows full well government-run healthcare is less efficient, more expensive and there will be a lower quality of care. The Obama admin, their liberal cronies, and anyone who had enough power lobbied for an exemption and got the hell out of Dodge. Typical double-standard of the Left. The truth is Obamacare was just a Trojan horse for the Obama administration and liberal establishment to gain more control over our lives.
Back in 1961 Ronald Reagan spoke out against socialized medicine and practically predicted Obamacare. He spoke about government intrusion into our lives which would lead to the erosion of personal freedoms. Reagan said:
Write those letters now; call your friends and tell them to write them. If you don’t, this program I promise you will pass just as surely as the sun will come up tomorrow and behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known it in this country. Until, one day, as Normal Thomas said we will awake to find that we have socialism. And if you don’t do this and if I don’t do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.
