In my previous post, I made comments about "what do student loans have to do with health care reform" and that the Democrats probably added "student loans" to their health care reform reconciliation bill as sweetener to get it passed. Listening to Glenn Beck's radio show this morning caused the light to go on. It will be extra sweet to the progressives, like Barack Obama, who's ultimate goal is "social justice". By passing education legislation through along with health care legislation, they are "killing 2 birds with one stone". Along with control, it's all about reparations.
Barack Obama's thoughts on reparations are spoken about in the video below. Apparently, he doesn't believe in reparations...at least not in a one shot financial payoff deal. Reparations through fundamentally changing America into a country of "social justice" through health care and educational policies will result in an 'on-going' process of reparations. Therefore, adding the two together and shoving them down our throats, as they are trying to do this week, will be the a great success for Obama...although just a start. Cap & Tax and Amnesty will be the next two items that will continue the process.
I found this video from July 2009. Within the first 2 minutes of the video there is a clip of Obama speaking about his thoughts on reparations. In his words he mentions health care and education and how reform of those will "disproportionately" affect people of color. On-going reparations. Now it makes sense why they added education to the health care bill.
Side Note: Glenn's remarks in the latter part of the video are addressing the House health care bill, not the Senate bill that is being pushed through for reconciliation this week. I don't know if the issues he is referring to are in the Senate bill they are dealing with this week. If anyone knows the answer to that one, please leave a comment.
Time to hit the phones and faxes again.
