Nah, Obamacare is not about socialism

Or perhaps it is a little slip of the tongue from Max Baucus now that "health care reform" has already been passed.

After the Senate passed a "fix-it" bill Thursday to make changes to the new health care law, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of the influential Finance Committee, said the overhaul was an "income shift" to help the poor.

"Too often, much of late, the last couple three years, the mal-distribution of income in American is gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy and the middle income class is left behind," he said. "Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America. This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America."

So our benevolent keepers in Washington have decided that they and they alone are the arbiters of how much one person can earn, what is too much and what is too little. As I have said before, this monstrosity was never about health care. It has always been about controlling the American people by seizing private wealth and making as many ill-informed voters dependent on the Federal government as possible.
