"The leader of this Marxist clique is Quentin Young-a retired Chicago physician, a life-long Marxist activist and long time friend and political ally of Barack Obama. Young has known and worked with Obama for years in Chicago and has reportedly directly influenced Obama's views on socialized medicine.
According to radical journalist John Nichols writing in The Progressive,
"Obama...learned about single-payer health care from his old friend and neighbor Dr. Quentin Young, the longtime coordinator of Physicians for a National Health Program."
Quentin Young told Amy Goodman of "Democracy Now!" that while an Illinois state senator, Obama was a strong supporter of "single payer." He said: "Barack Obama, in those early days-influenced, I hope, by me and others-categorically said single payer was the best way, and he would inaugurate it if he could get the support, meaning majorities in both houses, which he's got, and the presidency, which he's got. And he said that on more than one occasion..." Trevor Loudon
Obama’s Comrades Push Socialized Medicine
AIM Report | By Trevor Loudon | December 15, 2009
Obama’s healthcare bill is the cornerstone of his presidency.
(Editor's Note: Blogger Trevor Loudon, a speaker at the 40th anniversary AIM conference, has written the following about the socialist agenda behind President Obama's push for health care "reform."
It is important to keep in mind, as we discussed in a recent AIM Report, that Charles Kramer, an identified Soviet espionage agent, served as staff director for Senator Claude Pepper's Senate subcommittee of the Committee on Educational Labor in 1945. Investigator Herbert Romerstein explains that "There he wrote a bill to establish a National Health Program, which in 1946 was adopted by President Truman as the Truman Health Care Bill. It failed to pass. Its opponents called it socialized medicine."
Pepper, known as "Red Pepper," served with communist Hugh DeLacy on the Communist-front National Council of Soviet-American Friendship and wrote the introduction for the book, "The Great Conspiracy Against Russia," in which he called for a "better international understanding of Russia" and denounced "anti-Soviet intrigue." As we noted, it looks like Obama is picking up where "Red Pepper" left off.)
The push to socialize U.S. health care came not from the "people," but from a small clique of Marxists, led by a man with close personal ties to President Barack Obama. This group's goal is fully socialized, government run "single payer" health care-as long promoted through Congressman John Conyers' National Health Insurance Act, or HR 676.
