NRSC - Shaheen's ObamaCare: A Trojan Horse for single-payer health care 

Jeanne Shaheen's True Intentions Revealed

ObamaCare a Trojan Horse for single-payer health care

Weeks before Washington Democrats passed ObamaCare, Nancy Pelosi declared: “We have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it...”

That's apparently not the case, according to Jeanne Shaheen's hand-picked Majority Leader Harry Reid.

On Friday, Reid made it clear; ObamaCare is just a gateway drug to the ultimate Democratic health care high: a single-payer health care system

According to the Las Vegas Sun, “Reid said he thinks the country has to 'work our way past' insurance-based health care ...'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.'

Remember, this is the same Harry Reid who Jeanne Shaheen steadfastly supports for Majority Leader. And this is the same Jeanne Shaheen who was also the deciding vote for ObamaCare.

And while Shaheen claims ObamaCare has been good for New Hampshire, the numbers tell a different story.

Now, Harry Reid has revealed Jeanne Shaheen's true intention: ObamaCare is a Trojan Horse for a total government takeover - it's a single-payer health care system.

"Rather than listening to the millions of New Hampshire women, workers and families who want ObamaCare permanently delayed and dismantled so that the rising cost of health care can finally be properly addressed, Jeanne Shaheen continues to stand alongside Harry Reid as they together attempt to take significant steps toward dictating Granite Staters' health care," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "The fact is that Harry Reid and Jeanne Shaheen attempted to pass ObamaCare in the dead of night when no one was looking but now they’re working to sneak through a single-payer, Canadian-style, government run health system onto the backs of hard working middle-class families. Granite Staters deserve better."
