Failed Vetting: Obama For Socialist Healthcare, Holder For Brainwashing On Guns

Breitbart is attempting to vet Obama via a series of video and information releases. Some of this stuff is interesting but it seems a little late to be vetting the President of the United States. The information he and others have come up with show how poorly the media vetted Obama in 2008. Other information shows how poorly the media looked into the past of his cabinet appointees and how little the Senate did in doing the same thing before confirmation. Obama and his administration were quite clear about what they wanted to do to the country. You just had to look at their past.
In 2007 Obama spoke to SEIU, the radical service employees union. SEIU is a big supporter of Occupy Wall Street and its board is full of Marxists and other leftists. In addition to Obama telling SEIU ”I’m one of you” he also spoke about healthcare. Obama admitted that his proposed Obamacare would be the intermediary between the quasi free market system we had and the future socialist system. He so much as said his goal was a government run health care system. His proposal would achieve that but not right away, it would take 5, 10, 15 or maybe 20 years to complete.
As it turns out Obamacare will do just that. When Obamacare kicks in employers will have a choice to make. They can continue with their current plan or they can dump employee healthcare and pay an 8% fine. Many employers pay15% or more on employee healthcare so for some the 8% would be a savings. The individual mandate would require individuals to buy health insurance or pay a fine. At the beginning the fine is a modest $600 but it escalates after a few years to more than the cost of a health insurance policy. So what Obama is doing is ensuring that employers give up their employee health benefits and setting up a crisis down the road which will result in people demanding government paid health insurance because employers aren’t providing it. Obamacare is just the intermediate solution before outright socialist healthcare.
Attorney General Eric Holder has been under fire from the right for the past year concerning the Fast and Furious program. You’ll recall that Fast and Furious was a program that allegedly was going to track guns and their use by Mexican drug cartels. The government either paid for illegal guns or told gun sellers to sell guns illegally to those suspected of being involved in drug cartels. Thousands of guns made their way into Mexico, being used in the murders of over 200 Mexicans and one American border patrol agent. The right has long believed this program was created in order to create a gun crisis on the border, which the Obama administration would then use to push for more gun control.
If the media or the Senate would have vetted Eric Holder they would have discovered that this fear of the right’s was completely justified. In 1995 Holder suggested the government brainwash people concerning guns. What better way to brainwash Americans than for the administration to create a crisis which of course they have the solution to? At this point it shouldn’t surprise anyone if Holder not only knew about Fast and Furious long before he claims to have known but was likely involved in its development. After all, he wants to brainwash us into opposing guns.
The media in 2008 spent twice as much time vetting the Republican’s Vice Presidential nominee than it spent vetting the future President. No one bothered to look into the backgrounds of any of Obama’s cabinet appointees. Holder isn’t the only one who has said radical things in the past, Energy Secretary Steven Chu said he wanted Americans to pay European prices for gas. When he said it, Euro gas prices were $8 a gallon. Holder and Chu have both put their radical vision into action as Cabinet members. Fast and Furious was an attempt to brainwash Americans to oppose guns and just take a look at gas prices these days. Meanwhile Obama continues writing regulations for his Obamacare act, which will lead to socialist medicine by his own words. But who in the mainstream press cares about any of this?
