    The Real Goal of Healthcare Reform

    04/28/2009

    Via NewsAlert and HotAir comes this damning video.  Watch Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) gleefully admit that the goal of healthcare "reform" is to run private insurers out of business.

    Today, the House is going to take up the conference resolution on the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Budget.  Despite the fact that even many Democratic Senators have said they oppose the use of reconciliation to pass healthcare reform, and the fact that several amendments and a motion to instruct tried to both keep the reconciliation out and protect taxpayers from losing their choice of healthcare, it seems that reconciliation lives after all.

    That means that only a mere 51 filibuster proof votes could stand between us and socialized medicine.  Or between us and Great Britian.  Or between us and Mexican medicine.  This should go well.
