Say Anything reports:
|Hillary goes off on a reporter at the National Association of Black Journalists Presidential Forum for daring to call socialized medicine... well... socialized medicine. [Video here]|
What do you think she’s angry about more, that she’s essentially being called a socialist or that a black man dared wander off the liberal plantation to question her “we liberals know what’s best for you” policies...?
But, it’s not wrong. The health care system Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats support consists of taking wealth from everyone (or, more accurately, the top 50% of wage-earners who pay all the taxes) and redistributing it to everyone in the form of medical care. Wealth redistribution, put simply. And what is socialism if not wealth redistribution?
Regarding the original version of HillaryCare, the Mises Institute wrote (July 1996):
By every reasonable definition, the initial version of HillaryCare was socialized medicine. And when Hillary denies it, she's spinning fairy tales -- again.
It's a canard, to be sure, but here's how you call tell when Hillary's lying: her lips are moving.
