On the Wednesday “Glenn Beck Program,” the host warned of the dangers of socialist medicine and the ulterior motives of those trying to foist it on America.Â OfÂ course he’s right.Â
America has the best health care system in the world. Is it perfect? No. But it’s still the best. Yet we’re about to throw it all away in favor of –government-run health care.
But here’s the one thing: The Democrats’ latest health care plan has nothing to do with “health” or “caring” and everything to do with power and control.
Beck noted that the Democratic Party, “who hates being called ‘socialist,’ is proposing to fund government care with a 5.4 percent surtax on those making over $1 million a year, with gradual taxes starting at incomes of $280,000 a year.”
Beck said theÂ “huge tax hike only funds part of the plan. The rest is coming from â€” and I’m going to try and say this with a straight face â€” the expected windfall of savings the government will achieve.”
He ridiculed the idea that the U.S. government, which “racked up an $11.5 trillion debt, will fund a massive new programÂ with “savings.” The healthcare legislation, he explained,Â “isn’t about getting little Sally Muchenfuch medicine for her elbow-warts and it isn’t about making every chubby American a beanpole.”
If it becomes law, the government would control an additional one-sixth of the economy,Â Bexk said. “Combine that with the industries they’ve already infiltrated â€” namely the banks and the auto industry â€” and the ones they are trying to infiltrate â€” like the energy industry â€” and you have something that looks nothing like America.”
The ACORNs of the world, that’s not, that isÂ not about voter registration. That is about framework. That is about community organizing. That is about getting people to stand up and extort other people. It is, in the future, those kinds of organizations will be about riots, planned riots.
In fact Beck is correct. He describes both the tactics of the leftist Machiavelli Saul Alinsky and the Cloward-Piven Strategy of orchestrated crisis that was long ago embraced by ACORN. ACORN founder Wade Rathke acknowledges at pageÂ 122 of his new book, Citizen Wealth, the debt that the so-called welfare rights movement owes to Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven for devising the “overwhelm the system” strategy for radical political change. Rathke calls the strategy “an exciting call to arms.”
