OTOH, Obama has, with his very own lips, gums, and vibrating vocal cords, stated that these compromises 'pave the way' to the 'desired end result'
Public option paves the way to single payer, paving the way to universal health care and government provided care as a right.
Environmental restrictions pave the way to cap and trade, paving the way to coal, nuclear and fossil fuels becoming so expensive that government programs can replace them with renewables.
Government intrusion into healthcare paves the way into a shared responsibility for healthy citizens, paving the way for governmental guidance of diet and exercise habits.
These are Obama enunciated rationales, not my personal fever dream concoctions. But again, you know this but prefer to mischaracterize and lie for your little precious patch of turf.
We already have government provided health care programs, subsidized renewable energy industries, and governmental guidance of diet and exercise (see the food pyramid). What are your real concerns? That Obama proposes federal regulations of pop, candy, and mayonnaise? That every citizen is going to have to do weekly physical checkups with their government bureaucrat in order to get their rationed food basket? That private gas companies are going to be illegal?
Are those not your own biases or illusions or imputations of the liberal/Obama agenda?
