It fits ObamaCare’s theft of choice for patients-consumers, and facilitates the concentration of power. Wipe out insurers and create single-payer, government run health care as the only option – as Obama has stated as his true intention, then make all M.D.s dependent on and controlled by that government entity, and place all other health practitioners under the control of the M.D.s. Now the government can bend that cost curve because it completely controls supply and demand, can dictate price, and never be troubled by all these pesky independent practitioners. Just as the goal is five, maybe six big banks and no others, this scheme leads to a handful of hospital-medical corporate conglomerates and nothing else.

Such entities become quasi-government operations, just like Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the USPS, Amtrak. The goal is to make every citizen entirely dependent on the government for virtually everything. All this messy, chaotic, impossible to control capitalism will be replaced with a simple, neat vertical structure easily managed by king and czars.

DeGaulle once complained of France: “How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?” It is obvious Obama feels the same way about America. How can one man be expected to govern a country with such independent people and so many small, independent businesses. What is de-centralized must be centralized. Any and all independence must be sacrificed for the greater, common good.
