Former liberal South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle was in line to become Obama's Secretary of Health and Human Services until his failure to pay taxes became public early this year.
It has now been revealed that Daschle has been functioning as a stealth czar for Obama by providing consulting advice to senior Obama aide Peter Rouse and health-care reform czar Nancy-Ann DeParle. (Her husband is Jason DeParle, a reporter for the New York Times.) Daschle also met with Obama on August 21 for a strategy meeting, according to the Washington Post.It is widely acknowledged in Washington, D.C., that Daschle is the primary architect of Obama's plan to seize control of our health care system. Daschle currently has four former aides now working in the White House - and it was Daschle who suggested that Obama go on vacation to let things cool down over the health care issue.
Daschle is author of Critical, a book that lays out a plan for the nationalization of health care in America. On pages 196-197 of his book, he gives advice to the next President:
If the next President is dedicated to reform, he or she can use the formidable power of the White House to create a sense of urgency on this issue and forge a consensus on how to move forward. This means going on the offensive; we cannot wait for the next "Harry and Louise" ad to define the debate. We cannot assume that the public recognizes the distortions and fallacies peddled by reform opponents; we have to educate people on the emptiness of the anti-reform rhetoric.
The next President should act immediately to capitalize on the goodwill that greets any incoming administration. If that means attaching a health-care plan to the federal budget, so be it. This issue is too important to be stalled by Senate protocol.
Note Daschle's advice to the President to "create a sense of urgency." This is designed to rush through legislation without debate or careful thought about the unintended consequences of nationalizing our health care system.
Daschle's plan would force everyone into a "play or pay" scheme. This would order everyone into a government-managed system or pay a fine or tax. Daschle's socialized medicine scheme with a federal health board will wreck our health care system.
The federal office he proposed is to be called the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology. It will monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective! The federal government will "guide" your doctor in making health care decisions for you.
TVC's report, "Another Tax Cheat To Head Cabinet-Level Post" reveals the questionable dealings of the former Senator and his wife - both of whom have profited from involvement in health care issues.
TAKE ACTION: Contact your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators and ask them to vote NO on Obama's government-run health care plan.
