http://www.breitbart.tv/obama-in-03-id-like-to-see-a-single-payer-health-care-plan/ âI happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And thatâs what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And thatâs what Iâd like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.â BHO Apparently, this statement was taken out of context and Obama does not advocate a single payer system. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090804/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_obama_health_care_3 WASHINGTON (AP) â The White House is turning to the Internet to hit back at a Web posting that claims to show President Barack Obama explaining how his health care reform plans eventually would eliminate private insurance. The three-minute White House video features Linda Douglas, a former network television correspondent and now White House Office of Health Reform communications director, sitting in front of a computer screen showing the Drudge Report Web site. That site carries a series of video clips from another blogger who strings together selected Obama statements on health care to make it appear he wants to eliminate the private health insurance business. In the video Douglas says the site is "taking sentences and phrases out of context, and they're cobbling them together to leave a very false impression."
