    During the hotly debated Obamacare wars of years past, conservatives were ridiculed and mocked for saying that it was a government takeover of the health industry.

    Now Democrat Senate Majority Leader Reid comes clean and admits that’s exactly the goal. From the Las Vegas Sun:

    “What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” Reid said.

    When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”

    Sebelius called for a ‘single payer system eventually’

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid isn’t the only high-profile Democrat who has suggested the United States will eventually transition to a single payer health care system.

    The Nevada lawmaker generated headlines Friday for predicting that President Obama’s health care law is the first step to phasing out insurance-based health care.

    In 2007, while governor of Kansas, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated flatly in a speech at Harvard: “I’m all for a single payer system eventually.”
