A socialist organization with close ties to Barack Obama has outlined a plan to turn the president's health-care legislation into a government-run system that will ultimately eliminate private insurance companies.
Obama's health-care bill "should create millions of new stakeholders in a health-care system governed by democratically established rules rather than by the fiats of private insurers," wrote Frank Llewellyn, national director of Democratic Socialists of America.
Writing in the latest issue of the socialist Democratic Left magazine, Llewellyn said "progressives" must use Obama's health-care legislation "to build support for the elimination of private insurers."
Llewellyn called for a public-information campaign regarding "Obamacare" and socialized medicine.
Democratic Socialists of America members "in every state and city," he said, "should be prepared to rebut distortions with letters to the editor and op-eds that talk about what socialism really is â€“ and what true social democratic public provision would look like, particularly when health care is the paradigmatic public good that markets, let alone for-profit oligopolies, simply cannot justly and affordably supply."
