The Origins of Obamacare

A book documents for the first time the radical origins of President Obama’s health-care law revealing the principal author of the foundation for the legislation while tracing the law itself to a group funded by George Soros“Red Army: The Radical Network that must be defeated to save America” also finds the founders of the controversial Apollo Alliance run by a slew of radicals, helped craft the marketing campaign behind the health-care initiative. 

Aaron Klein
The new book, by authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott, exposes what is characterized as “the radical socialist network that seized political power in Washington over decades, shaped Obama’s presidential agenda and threatens the very future of the U.S.” On Obamacare, “Red Army” documents how the legislation, deliberately masked by moderate, populist rhetoric, was carefully crafted and perfected over the course of decades and is a direct product of laborious work by a coalition of radical groups and activists, many with socialist designs. 

Brenda J. Elliott
Those activists seek to “reform” the U.S. health-care industry, which accounts for a significant portion of the U.S. capitalist enterprise.“Red Army” reveals the principal author of the foundation for Obamacare is third generation progressive academic Jacob S. Hacker, a Yale professor who is an expert on the politics of U.S. health and social policy. 

Hacker is author of Health Care for America, the centerpiece of the George Soros–funded Economic Policy Institute’s Agenda for Shared Prosperity. “Red Army” finds Hacker’s proposal for so-called guaranteed, affordable health care for all Americans is the foundation for Obama’s healthcare plan. Hacker’s plan had its origins in the professor’s multiple other major policy papers on health care, including a 2001 plan for the Covering America project. 

Jacob S. Hacker
In 2003, Hacker first devised a public health insurance program called “Medicare Plus,” which would offer coverage to all legal residents not otherwise covered by Medicare or employer-sponsored insurance. Employers would be required to either provide a minimum level of coverage to their workers or pay a payroll tax. That plan was the basis for the U.S. National Healthcare Insurance Act, which was first introduced Feb. 2, 2005, in the House by Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. The act was sponsored by several other congressmen, all members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus“Red Army” documents how the Progressive Caucus was founded by the Democrat Socialists of America.

The book charges the caucus works as a Marxist-socialist block in Congress to introduce progressive legislation with socialist intent. Red Army” documents how a little-known marketing outfit called the Herndon Alliance helped to market Obamacare, even providing suggestions on which words supporters should use the promote the bill Acceptable phrases include “quality affordable health care”; “American solutions”; “giving security and peace of mind”; “fair rules”; “government as watchdog”; “smart investments, investing in the future”; and “affordable health plans.” 

Celinda Lake
Unacceptable words include “universal health care”; “Canadian-style health care”; “Medicare for All”; “regulations”; “free”; “government or public health care”; and “wellness.” Red Army” found the research component of the Herndon Alliance was provided by Celinda Lake, who teamed up with a marketing research firm American Environics. AE uses social-values surveys to gauge public opinion Lake, herself, worked for a number of leftist institutions and unions, including the AFL-CIO and the SEIU. 

Robert Borosage
She also serves on the board of directors of the Progressive Congress Action Fund alongside Robert Borosage, whose Healthcare for America Now anticipated spending $42 million in its final push for passage of Obamacare. AE was founded in 2004 by a team of American strategists and Canadian researchers. In April 2005, current AE managing partners Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger started AE’s American branch. One year before Shellenberger did imaging for Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez. 

Van Jones
Nordhaus and Shellenberger co-founded the Apollo Alliance sometime around 2002 and were two of its original national board members“Red Army” exposes how Apollo helped draft not only the president’s green jobs programs, but also the $787 billion economic stimulus bill and other proposed new energy legislation Apollo is led by a slew of radicals, including Van Jones, Jeff Jones, who heads Apollo’s New York branch and is a former top leader of the Weatherman terrorist organization, and Joel Rogers, a founder of the socialist New Party. Obama’s controversial former “green” jobs czar, Van Jones, sits on Apollo’s board. 

Dr. Quentin D. Young
Meanwhile, several major groups were founded to lobby for the legislation that became Obama’s healthcare law Healthcare-NOW, not to be confused with the organization Health Care for America Now, was established in 2004 for one purpose – to lobby on behalf of single-payer healthcare. Healthcare-NOW’s broad base includes socialist, labor, church and community organizations and, most notably, Physicians for a National Health Program. National Health Program. Healthcare-NOW co-chairmen include Dr. Quentin D. Young, who is considered father of the single-payer movement.

Medea Benjamin
Young advised Obama during his days as a senator. Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the radical Code Pink anti-war group, is a member of Healthcare-NOW’s board of directors. Another major group leading the charge to transform health care has been Campaign for America’s Future. CAF was founded in 1990 by Robert L. Borosage. Roger Hickey, co-founder of the Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute which “Red Army” ties to the health-care bill, is credited as being a CAF co-founder as well CAF unveiled the lobby, Health Care for America Now, or HCAN, which “Red Army” documents deceptively maintains that it is a “national grassroots campaign.” HCAN’s lead member organizations include ACORN; MoveOrg; AFSCME; Americans United for Change, Planned Parenthood Federation of America; SEIU; United Food and Commercial Workers; and the Soros-funded Center for American Progress Action Fund, which is highly influential in advising the White House. 

Red Army” documents how Obama and progressive Democrats are deliberately overloading the U.S. financial system, using socialist designs to remake the economy. The book, with nearly 1,500 endnotes, documents how these radicals aim to remake the American financial system with massive government control.“Red Army” contains a number of other major scoops while exposing the radical socialist network that seized political power in Washington over decades, shaped Obama’s presidential agenda and threatens the future of the U.S. Some other highlights from “Red Army”: 

The existence of a powerful “Marxist-socialist” bloc in Congress (explicitly formed as an arm of the Democratic Socialists of America) and how it is behind legislation in areas that affect all Americans, including the complete socialization of health care and comprehensive immigration reform, which, the book exposes, seeks to change the very nature of the American electorate In two chapters that every American must read, entirely new information s laid bare on the left’s unprecedented assault on America’s already over- liberalized education system. 

The multipronged policy offensive aimed at disarming America by emboldening its enemies within and without, spurning traditional allies subjecting the nation to the authority of foreign tribunals and systematically dismantling the U.S. military How elements of the news media not only collude with these radical groups but are in some cases members of the very extremist organizations they ought to be investigating.

The Great Bank Run

Does anyone remember during Obama's State of the Union Address when Obama announced that he would create a new kind of retirement account, (Lovingly called) the MyRA – which uses your retirement savings to buy U.S. Treasures and pay for U.S. debt?

Obama’s announcement follows a number of startling events which demonstrate how desperate the government is becoming:  with nowhere else to turn, the government is making a last-ditch effort to seize personal savings & retirement to fund the nation’s insurmountable debt.  And there’s only ONE thing you can do to stop it from happening. So I'm going to give you the up & up on what this scam is designed to do.

The U.S. debt, not including unfunded liabilities, is over $17 trillion dollars.  And the U.S. Treasury estimates our debt to go over $28 trillion by 2018!  In order to finance this debt, the Federal Reserve has been buying 90% of the U.S. Treasury market through money-printing stimulus, to the tune of $80 BILLION per month for the last several years.  And we all know that the Fed has begun tapering its stimulus program because they can no longer afford to fund the national debt.

So if the Fed is going insolvent, who do you think the government will lean on to pick up the slack?  The answer is YOU.  10,000 Baby Boomers will turn 65 years-old every day until 2030.  And while the government has a debt problem of $17 trillion, not so coincidentally, our country's IRAs, 401Ks and other retirement accounts amount to right around $19 Trillion.  What a convenient resource for the Federal Government!

Master Plan, Stage 1:  Get YOU to Finance the Debt

Obama suddenly announces in his State of the Union Address that he’s got a great “no risk” idea for Americans saving for their retirement.  His exact words:  “I will direct the Treasury to create a new way for working Americans to start their own retirement savings:  MyRA.  It’s a new savings bond that encourages folks to build a nest egg.  MyRA guarantees a decent return with no risk of losing what you put in.”

In other words, YOU the American taxpayers will start buying U.S. Treasuries because the insolvent Fed can no longer do so.  Whenever anyone tells you an investment is “no risk,” you know you’re being sold another scam.  No risk?  Nonsense.  If you buy a 10-year Treasury bill now, you’re locked in at a low interest rate – a rate that has been kept artificially low by Fed stimulus.  Well, Fed stimulus is ending.  And that means we’re headed into an inflationary environment where interest rates have nowhere to go but up.  So in other words, your bond investments lose significant value EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Hardly no risk.

And how do you feel about investing in a mountain of unsustainable debt?  Most experts (and anyone with common sense) have demonstrated how our national debt levels can NEVER be paid off.  And now, those same experts are predicting the imminent collapse of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency.  So if the market for U.S. Treasuries is drying up and the demand for U.S. dollars implodes, does investment in America’s debt seem like a “no risk” move to you?

Master Plan Stage 2:  Confiscation of Retirement Accounts

So, what happens if you’re not willing to invest in Obama’s MyRa?  How does the government get the funding it needs to continue financing and growing the debt?  The answer:  FORCE you to make your retirement funds accessible to the government.

Lauren Schmitz
If you do some research on US Bill “HB5337,” you will find the plan to nationalize retirement wealth.  On May 6, 2012 Lauren Schmitz, a research analyst at the Bernard L Schwartz Center for Economic Analyst (SCEPA), introduced HB5337.  This 401(k)/IRA de-privatization is the brainchild of Teresa Ghilarducci, whom through funding from the White House and the Ford & Rockefeller Foundations engineered a new “Regulatory & Tax Incentive.” The purpose is to force Americans to convert their Retirement Accounts into Government Managed accounts.

The government will nationalize retirement accounts like IRAs, 401Ks, pensions, 403Bs, etc. so that you will be forced to use a portion of your retirement wealth to purchase U.S. government debt – debt that will ultimately default, as it is not possible to sustain our astronomical debt nor the deficits that create it.

This plan to nationalize private 401K and IRA retirement accounts is being deceptively publicized as the government protecting the public against business failings or state bankruptcies.  But the reality is, your cash, your retirement funds, your bank deposits and your investments are at huge risk of being confiscated by the government through some contrived reason or another.

The Only Way Out

So the government is giving you two options:  fund the debt willingly, or fund the debt by force.

Given those two “options,” it might seem like you have no control over your savings & retirement.  But don’t be fooled – You DO have control. You can REMOVE a portion of your savings & retirement from a financial system on the brink of collapse and store your wealth instead in the ONE asset that lives outside the madness, CAN’T be harmed by the debt disaster or dollar collapse, CAN’T default, and CAN’T be confiscated with the stroke of a key on a computer: REAL PHYSICAL GOLD AND SILVER.

Gold isn’t a debt instrument and isn’t made of paper,

Gold rises in value as the national debt increases.

Gold rises in value as the dollar falls.

Gold rises in value as inflation kicks in.

Gold is out of the government’s view and private.

Gold has outlasted every paper currency the world has ever known.

Gold triumphs when nation’s fail.
